The Washburn Project Management Group, LLC Team

Walt Washburn, PMP

I am Walt Washburn, and have established Washburn Project Management Group, LLC and this site to showcase open source project management tools that are ready for enterprise use. I love the project management discipline, open source software, and the open source approach to building and developing solutions.

I have been a technical systems project manager for 25 years, managing projects in the federal, DoD, legal, banking, consumer services, and healthcare industries. A long-time member of Project Management Institute (PMI), I hold the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification 51196.

Thus, I bring to Washburn Project Management Group, LLC experience and expertise with:
