Project Management to Vice President with Tom Keuten
Taking on the role of Project Manager is an accomplishment
all on its own. At some point, you were identified as someone that
is well organized, communicates well and demonstrates leadership
capabilities. Then becoming a successful Project Manager is an even
bigger accomplishment. You’ve shown you can make a positive
impact on your organization and deliver results. This in itself
can be a very rewarding career with lots of variety and challenges.
PMs are rarely bored. But what if you want to take your career in
a different direction, and move up in an organization? This Presentation
will talk about things to look out for on your journey and take
advantage of that can lead to your next role.
Keuten serves as a Vice President for Rightpoint, an experience
agency. Our programs deliver digital transformation through strategy,
design, technology and change management. He previously worked for
Capgemini, Pariveda and BDO, and has lead projects for great brands
like Marathon Petroleum, General Motors, Amwy, Ford, DTE Energy,
and many others. Tom has supported PMI for years, achieving PMP
certification, working on the PMBOK Guide, leading the 2nd version
of the OPM3 Model and managing Corporate Outreach in Great Lakes.
He taught project management and PMO classes in the US, Europe and
Asia. He earned his MBA from the University of Notre Dame after
earning a bachelor’s from Central Michigan University.
