Matthew J. Weaver
Matthew Weaver is president/CEO of Project Weavers, LLC, an American veteran-owned project management training company. He specializes in project management, best practices, methodology definition, and process improvement based on nearly 40 years of experience that began with enlistment in the Navy, progressed through work for a variety of companies, and several forays into starting and running his own companies. Matthew’s experience involves all aspects of project, product, and development life cycles. He has taught project management in one form or another since around 2000. Matthew will publish “A Project Methodology”, a detailed project management how-to book, in late 2017 or early 2018 to coincide with the upcoming 6th edition of the PMBOK Guide.
Matthew actively volunteers with PMI Global, PMI chapters, and with groups that help fellow veterans and people who are unemployed. He is a frequent speaker around the US and in Canada, always welcoming the opportunity, even last minute, to speak on project management and related topics. Read more.
