Michael Hatfield

Michael Hatfield, MBA, PMP, CCC, EVP, belongs to an exclusive club: he is one of the few people who can legitimately claim to be an internationally-recognized expert in the field of Project Management, having received correspondence on his writings and presentations from every continent in the world, save Antarctica. He is the author of the long-running column in PMNetwork magazine, Variance Threshold, as well PMI® Publishing’s 2008 title, Things Your PMO Is Doing Wrong, and Game Theory in Management (Gower Publishing, 2012). While he was blogging for the Project Management Institute, Nicole Adams named his one of the “Top 100 Project Management Blogs.”

Michael’s use of both logic and humour in his writings have earned him a reputation for clarity in style and insightfulness in content, both of which are abundant in Game Theory in Management. He is no stranger to exploring and testing the newest ideas in project management – his Project Management Professional® certification number is 1004 (out of more than 390,000 now), and his Earned Value Professional® certification number is twenty-four. Michael was the youngest of those receiving invitations to become members of the faculty of the College of Performance Management for the 2004-2005 term, and was the keynote speaker for the Future of Project Management seminar, held in Silicon Valley, California, in 1999. He was also the Deputy Project Manager and contributing author of PMI®’s Practice Standard for Earned Value Management.
