The author of The Diva Diaries...Adventures in Project Management. When I'm not blogging, you'll find me using the name Mary Young.
Are You Really a Diva?
I must be honest...I am not a celebrated singer nor do I possess outstanding talent in the world of opera, theatre, cinema or popular music.
Staff or Student?
I wear both hats (as you can see from this photo I like hats). I have the honor of working for the president of this distinguished institution, and the privilege of being counted as a student in the first cohort of the first graduate program ever offered at Granite State College.
What Do You Like About Your Job?
I love being part of an innovative and forward-thinking institution that is a leader in adult college education, in the classroom and online. We're moving and we're moving fast!
Why Are You Pursuing a Graduate Degree in Project Management?
Project managment is a discipline that combines technical concepts, tools, techniques and strategies with human skills such as communication, collaboration and leadership. As more and more organizations today recognize how critical projects and programs are to maintaining a competitive advantage and to their success, project management has become the focus for driving change. I believe project managers are in a position to change the world.
