Kimberly Wiefling, Executive Editor of the Scrappy About Series, is the author of one of the top project management books in the US, “Scrappy Project Management - The 12 Predictable and Avoidable Pitfalls Every Project Faces”, and the founder of Wiefling Consulting, LLC, a scrappy global consulting enterprise committed to enabling her clients to achieve highly unlikely or darn near impossible results - predictably and repeatedly.
A physicist by education, and a successful business leadership and project management consultant for the past 8 years, she began her professional career with 10 years at HP working in product development, project management and engineering leadership. She spent 5 years in the wild and whacky world of Silicon Valley startups, including a Xerox Parc spinoff where she was the VP of Program Management. In 2001 she rose from the ashes of the dot-com bust, launched her consulting practice, and never looked back.
Kimberly currently spends about half of her time facilitating leadership, communication and execution excellence workshops for leaders of Japanese companies committed to becoming truly global. Thousands of people have viewed the hysterical video documenting the final phase of completing her book. You can reach her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
