Project Managers are positioned better than ever to serve their organizations as change agents. All you need is the desire and you can develop your own opportunities to create sustainable change using best practices and technology.
Hello! I am Margo Kammeyer, and I am the newest member of the Project & Change Management Advisory Group. I have over 25 years of extensive project management experience leading multi-year and emerging technology projects. I hold a PMP certification, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification, and am a Certified Information Systems Security Officer.
As a Project Manager at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, I have been actively involved in enabling our PeopleSoft environments to not only support student success, but efficiencies in the back office as well. It's not enough having well-functioning systems and projects delivered on time, however, if your processes are not able to support them. And, how often are we able to check back in after a large implementation and see just how those processes and areas are doing after the go live? Most likely, the answer is not as often as we would like, as we move from project to project.
It was this desire to do something more, and provide more to my customers, that prompted me to pursue a Quality Systems Degree and become a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. By integrating project management and Lean concepts, I am able to provide my customers throughout the university with the tools and techniques to instill quality and efficiencies into their business processes. What a better way to lead change than to help educate and promote improvement and efficiency throughout the university!
In my spare time, I am currently pursuing a doctorate degree in Higher Education Administration. The insight I am exposed to in the true functioning's of a university is already helping me elevate my project and change management approaches towards the betterment of my ability to serve my university as a change agent.
I have a passion for change and a desire to continuously improve for the betterment of those we serve. I look forward to getting to know you and to learn from you.
