The traditional 1 page resume (aka CV) is too constraining and doesn‘t give you a good idea about who I am and what I‘ve done. Instead, I‘d like to take you on a journey through my life. Note this is not a linear trip, so we will dart in and out of reality and back and forth through time.
I know what it is like to live in the American Midwest and the Southwest.I know what is like to live in the suburbs and to live in rurual communities.I know what is like to live in a foreign country, to live outside of the U.S. as an American.
I‘m been part of a project team, part of a project office, the project office manager, a project manager on a global programme, a project manager working with teams around the globe, and so on….

This Is Not My Resume! 8 Steps to Managing (my Un-Resume) Darryl Heronhttp://about.me/darrylheron
The Traditional Resume Doesn’t Work! 1 page resume doesn’t tell MY story! You don’t KNOW me & can’t see what I’ve done!.... Let me show you a little bit about myself This is my Un-Resume. This is ME!
Life Is a Journey, Not a Destination.. Born in the Motor City and have lived 20+ years in the suburbs of Detroit Lived in Dallas, Texas for nearly a decade Worked in Benelux for 1 year Have lived in the Frankfurt, Germany area for several years
One Size Does Not Fit All..I‘m a Father, Husband, Brother, Son, Uncle, FamilyMan, & above all a Loyal Friend…While I‘m also a(n) Experienced ProjectManager; Strategic, Out of the Box Thinker;Customer and People Focused; Communicatorand Leader; & Social Media Evangelist
Experienced Project Manager: Working In Project Management for 13+ years Have been part of smaller projects & part of bigger global projects Have worked with local teams and teams dispersed throughout the world I’ve worked on internal projects as well as being client facing
I’ve had projects with the following companies:

Project Mgmt Transcends Projects: Projects are everywhere in our professional and private lives Completing our projects to scope, time, quality, and budget is important to varying degrees everywhere Projects need to be properly managed or the desired scope, schedule, quality, and budget will not be met and your stakeholders won’t be happy
Strategic, Out of the Box Thinker: Ability to look at situations beyond the surface Able to see how technology could be used before it is apparent to others Can see the bigger picture and connect the dots Creative and innovative solutions are always on my mind
Driven by New Technology: Much of what is driving the world didn’t exist 100 years ago and in many case not even 20 years or even a decade ago. New technology makes all kinds of things possible that were only dreamed about a few your years ago Really enjoy being a pioneer on the leading edge Great consideration is needed before deciding to implement new technology*
Customer And People Focused Many years of customer experience Belief that the Customer is not always right but is always the Customer and ultimately you need a customer to buy or use your product or service Win-Win solutions should always be seriously considered If you help others to solve their problems you can achieve great things!
Communicator And Leader: 80% of a PM’s job is said to be Communication There are more and more forms of communication and this needs to be managed Management and Leadership are two different things Leaders need to guide and set direcion Managers need to implement what the Leaders have decided, managing and handling the people to achive the goals of the Leaders
