Donna Fitzgerald managed her first IT program more than a decade before the 1996 version of the PMBoK was published. In the mid-90s, she became active in the nascent agile development community and later wrote for Tech Republic as the Nimble PM. In 2007, she joined Gartner’s equally nascent PPM research group, where she spent ten years.
She’s the founder of Nimble PM and probably the most opinionated person when it comes to project management! While she’s occasionally accused of being an iconoclast, her commitment to helping PMs deliver successful projects and programs has never wavered.
