Introduction, There is not a single phase or position in the world of business where someone isn t managing a project. in some form or another We are all project managers trying to initiate guide or close one project or task. only to move on to the next project or task, I have been involved in project management for over 10 years in both military and civilian projects such. as re writing of company manuals developing and executing training programs and managing the. maintenance evolutions of a helicopter fleet Throughout this time I have received both formal and. practical training in project management and have received accolades for my knowledge and skill. My first exposure to project management was as a CH 46E Flight Line shop supervisor in the. United States Marine Corps in charge of a shop of over 20 mechanics I was required to estimate. timelines materials and manpower required to perform the maintenance of the engines driveline and. rotor system of the 14 helicopters assigned to the squadron On one particular project a three aircraft. training detachment to California I was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal for my management of the. flight line maintenance as well as the development and management of the aircrew training program See. Navy Achievement Medal 10Sep05 in evidence, I continued to develop my project management skills as the Enlisted Aircrew Training Manager. EATM of my squadron In this position I had to create daily weekly monthly and quarterly training. plans identify and allocate assets to execute those plans and analyze the effectiveness of the resulting. training against the training plan This was a very dynamic environment that was constantly changing. from day to day the ever present risks of aircraft not being flyable and aircrew personnel getting sick. made me very effective at creating contingency plans to mitigate those risks Contrary to the ideas of a. runaway military budget I worked within a very tight budget in this position though my budget was not in. dollars and cents it was in aircraft flight hours and rounds of ammunition Much of the challenge was. evaluating the multiple training needs and creating a training plan that ensured that the highest quantity. and quality training was conducted within the set number of flight hours and rounds of ammunition that. was allocated each month For my proficient management of the enlisted aircrew I was awarded a Navy. Achievement Medal See Navy Achievement Medal 09Dec06 in evidence. After I ended my active service with the Marines I transitioned to the civilian world and became a. helicopter mechanic After a year in a heavy maintenance facility I was reassigned to a stand alone air. ambulance base where I was the only mechanic I created my own maintenance plans procure my own. parts evaluate flight hours to ensure maintenance was performed during off peak hours and. maintenance was executed so that the least amount of down time was incurred By verifying all aspects. that were required to complete the job and breaking the entire job down into tasks I was able to. accurately measure the time and materials that would be required to complete the job By breaking down. the job into tasks I was able to assess where issues may arise and plan ahead so that those issues would. be mitigated or at least have a plan in place if the issues became a reality The most important aspect of. managing these small maintenance projects was evaluating the positives and negatives of the project and. learning lessons that could be applied to the next project Additionally by saving information on each. project I was able to create processes for the more common or related maintenance tasks This hand on. learning would help me greatly in the next phase of my development. After a few years as a base aircraft mechanic I was recognized for my skills by being promoted. into management I became the Field Maintenance Manager of my company overseeing 13 mechanics. and 12 aircraft at 10 locations throughout Northern California After my promotion I was introduced to. formal project management by one of my mentors the Director of Safety who was a Project Management. Institute PMI certified Project Management Professional PMP I read through the copy of the Project. Management Body of Knowledge PMBOK that the director loaned me and became intrigued that project. management was broken down into such a precise science I purchased a subscription to. LearnSmart com to learn more about the PMI PMP processes and how to implement them I dove into the. project management courses enjoying the way the material was taught and how the material was. reinforced through case studies and quizzes Upon completion of the PMP courses I noticed that there. were more courses that the PMI gave Professional Development Units PDUs for and proceeded to take. nearly all courses in the course catalog with PMI PDUs These additional courses that I took over the. next 2 years helped me to understand how to effective include employees into project management. teams by learning additional leadership skills and methods to lead diverse teams These additional PMI. PDU courses helped me hone my communication and meeting organization and conduction skills. Upon completion of the PMP portion of the courses I was eager to apply the knowledge that I. had learned Fortunately my company had just taken delivery of new aircraft and I volunteered to. manage the first heavy maintenance evolution the 500 hours intermediate inspection This inspection. requires significant disassembly of the aircraft with subsequent inspection and repairs By following the. project management process I was able to effectively predict the financial manpower and aircraft down. time costs of the project ensure materials and tooling arrival was properly timed to the project needs and. that the project was completed on time and budget I subsequently moved onto other projects involving. completely rewriting the companies Federal Aviation Administration FAA approved Repair Station. Manual RSM Quality Assurance Manual QAM and Approved Aircraft inspection Program AAIP for. the BO 105LS aircraft, Since the completion of these projects I have focused on small projects that improve the.
efficiency of my department such as the creation and implementation of tool control safety and quality. control initiatives, In the evidence section I have included the LearnSmart Project Management Project. Management PDU Credits training catalog outlines the content of each of the courses the certificates of. completion for all the courses that I completed and an Excel document that compiles the applicable. information for the courses into one location The course as taught by Learnsmart follows the format of. the PMBOK chapters I have associated the courses with the course objectives of MAN 435 throughout. my narrative but invite you to read the training catalog for the specific subjects covered in each course. I have also included copies of the final working drafts of the RSM QAM and AAIP as proof of my. application of my project management knowledge, Differentiate between project management and more traditional process management. Project Management Overview, Project management differs from process management on many levels But the most common. differentiation is that a project management is generally used for a one time endeavor such as erecting a. statue where as a process management is used where the same process is executed numerous times. manufacturing cars Having used both project and process management I have determined that project. management can be a very effective first step in developing a highly effective process. A few years ago my company transitioned to a different type of helicopter The new helicopter. was significantly different than the previous model Very little information was known regarding the. maintenance of the new airframes other than they required major inspection at 500 flight hours intervals I. was put in charge of planning the first major inspection evolution Because there was no previous process. for the 500 hours inspection of this aircraft I applied the principles of project management to ensure the. success of this initial evolution, The planning and processes that I developed through project management in the initial project. were then used on subsequent projects and became part of the standard process for conducting a 500. hours inspection Now that the process is in place I have made changes with each iteration of the process. to ensure it operates efficiently, Discuss what motivates companies to adopt project management practices.
Managing Projects within Organizations, Companies are motivated to adopt project management practices to provide a standard method. to evaluate plan and execute projects while improving the success rate of project completion and. lowering the risks associated with taking on large projects. In my experience project management techniques give a company the tools to ensure project. success within the required constraints Not only are new projects successful but I have lead previously. failed from the past to completion and success by using project management techniques I have. concluded that by using project management techniques projects are more likely to be successfully. completed with less manpower and in less time than previously estimated without using project. management techniques In my assessment project management is a valuable skill that I increases the. value of a manager within their company and increases the efficiency of a company overall. Connect effective project management with the achievement of strategic outcomes. Project Management Process Groups, By using project management processes I have been able to ensure successes of projects within. my department of projects that had been previously attempted and abandoned due to lack of direction. Using project management techniques I was able to succeed where others had failed The strategic value. of the projects that I lead to completion ensured the proper maintenance of company aircraft assets. document for the sake of saving pages You will note that all other sample portfolios are formatted as double spaced documents As a reminder there is no single correct format for a portfolio but all samples tend be fairly similar in organization and format Also note that any portfolio is very personal to the writer In some instances the
