Russian Blockade of Berlin, 1948:

Bill Stewart is a PMIĀ® certified Project Management Professional (PMPĀ®), and has delivered more than 200 project management courses to more than 2,000 people in the Ottawa region (testimonials).  He has 27 years of hands-on experience with project management, risk management, contract management, and negotiating.  He has worked for the federal government, business, academia, and founded a software startup.  He is author of the book Deeply Practical Project Management, and the world's leading online applied PM course of the same name with more than 15,000 students.  He has managed projects in the domains of organizational improvement, business process, system integration, software, construction, bid and proposal, research, training, and others.

Bill is currently a management consultant helping clients work better and get more done.  Previously, he founded and ran the cloud computing company Cirrus Computing for ten years.  Before that he spent 14 years in aerospace where he served as Project Manager for projects from $250K to $55M, company System Engineering Manager and Software Manager, and in a range of senior management roles on other projects up to $3B.

His first real job was with the Canadian Public Service from 1982 to 1987, where he established and managed a computing centre supporting 4,500 personnel, developed and deployed software to manage enterprise-wide course scheduling, resource management, personnel management, and payroll, and developed and taught two programming courses accredited by Seneca College.

His professional training includes Executive Leadership, Project Management, Risk Management, System Engineering, System Architecture, and Requirements Engineering.  He has taught courses in Program Management, Project Management, Risk Management, Cost & Schedule Control, and Negotiating.

Bill received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of New Brunswick in 1992 for discovery of an algorithm that builds geodesic domes in multiple dimensions in optimum space and time, which to his knowledge has never been used for anything practical ;-)  While in graduate school he also taught eleven computer science courses. 

Bill is author of the first web-published book at LivingInternet.com, with contributions from many of the creators of the Internet, and author of the best practices document The Fun Standard.  His paper on public financing of political parties was published in Policy Options in 1990, and credited in the House of Commons when the Canadian party financing bill passed in 2003.  He lives with his wife and two children in Ottawa, Canada.
