I consider Karen Tate one of my mentors. She probably doesn’t even realize the amount of influence she has had over my career by teaching me basic project management. I took “Getting Started in Project Management” from her at least 10 years ago. What she taught was incredibly practical. She removed complicated and scary and replaced it with simple concepts that apply to projects ranging from planning a family reunion to new IT technology to new construction. I regularly refer to the material from the first class I took, the follow-up “Essential Skills” class and my favorite, the Project Management Memory Jogger.
