Michael Hatfield, MBA, PMP, CCC, EVP, 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. He was also the Deputy Project Manager and contributing author of PMI®’s Practice Standard for Earned Value Management.
In Game Theory in Management, (www.gowerpublishing.com/isbn/9781409442417) he explores the methods through which managerial strategies may be tested for their effectiveness, and thereby confronts much of the conventional wisdom prevalent in traditional, project, and strategic management arenas.
