Scott has worked with companies in the energy sector who recognize the value in leveraging technology to improve the quality of operational information and by doing so improve productivity, effectiveness and safety.   While working in the energy industry Scott realized how important systems, data and process are but also noticed how different they are across the industry.  As a technology nerd with a love for data and the desire to improve process Scott realized he could help the industry by creating a platform for project professions to collaborate and problem solve as a community.

Project management is the discipline of carefully projecting or planning, organizing, motivating and controlling resources to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.  The temporary nature of projects stand in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.
