Hello, I am Erich Kissel

This blog & knowledge exchange is an active accumulation of my professional career, in which I have been passionate to find efficiency in maturable process and reusable design. I believe that these are vital elements when aligning with dynamic organizational strategies, and are imperatives when surviving-to-thriving globally. 

My purpose is to continue to add value within my organization, as well as to constantly push my skills and expertise by being involved with PPM practices at large. I find significance when working, learning, networking, mentoring and nerding out to the practices of Project & Portfolio Management:) 

​This community is about sharing unique experiences, best practices and cool stuff within PPM.  My intent is that it will be engaging and network focused.  Especially in this forum, free content and interesting posts abound, and I look forward to our mutually beneficial exchange.

Also connect with me on LinkedIn, ​and watch for much more to come!
