For Kyle, project management starts not with the project, but with the people. His approach to working with clients is simple: help them get organized and define their objectives in easy-to-understand terms. Then he can introduce and start the transition to the new technology solutions that answer their unique needs. The project keeps flowing from there.
Along the way, Kyle coordinates delivery of multiple, often simultaneous work streams, pivoting when necessary on changes to scope and schedule, and communicating project progress and risks to all stakeholders. The result is enhancement of project visibility and improvement in overall project governance.
Kyle has a real passion for project management, and has gone above and beyond to hone his skills. He is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), a Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma, and a Certified Scum Master (CSM). Outside of SeyfarthLean, Kyle spreads his knowledge of project management by co-teaching “Legal Process Improvement and Legal Project Management” at Chicago-Kent College of Law.
Kyle attended law school at Wayne State University in Detroit with the intent of working with in-house counsel or in government. Instead, he quickly found his way to project management, spending three years at Axiom, a prominent alternative legal services provider.
Kyle’s ever-growing interest in the intersection of process, law, and technology eventually led him to SeyfarthLean Consulting, where he still marvels at the variety of customizable tools that are used to help transform the practice of law.
Growing up around Detroit fueled Kyle’s ongoing passion for cars specifically and the auto industry in general. He readily admits to being one of those guys who gawks at any new model driving down the road, especially when it’s a Corvette. When he isn’t dreaming of driving a Stingray down Lake Shore Drive, Kyle spends his time with his wife and four children.
“We stay actively engaged at all stages of a project’s lifecycle – from beginning to end – because we add value at each step along the way.”
