Mr. Smith has 30 years experience in military and commercial aviation safety (including helicopter and multi-engine turbo propellor, helicopter and jet aircraft), 7 years as an emergency manager, and 12 years as a senior director incorporate safety management. His education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering, a Master’s Degree in Aeronautical Systems Engineering, and training in safety, leadership, and Total Quality Management. He is an FAA-licensed Airline Transport Pilot (Multi-Engine Land and Rotorcraft) and the recipient of safety training courses at the University of Southern California, Arizona State University, Naval Postgraduate School Monterey, and various military technical schools.

Project Management begins with defining the objective and resources (personnel and expertise, material, time, and finances) thought to be required to create the deliverable. The process is iterative and takes into account the risks associated with the environment (feasibility, development, research, testing, cost, and customer satisfaction). Examples across various industries will be used to demonstrate the efficacy of the process.
