Andy Jordan, PMP, is the founder and president of Roffensian Consulting.
Andy is a seasoned business professional with experience in many industries on two continents. After a career managing high profile, business critical projects for many organizations Andy moved into leadership of project management offices and built a reputation for building, rescuing, and improving this key function. His approach of tailoring processes to the style and ability of the organization and focusing on the development of project staff rather than the short-sighted approach of meeting project deliverables at all costs has repeatedly shown dramatic results.
Moving beyond direct involvement in project, program and portfolio management and into consulting, Andy focused on working with companies to improve their capability to identify, prioritize and track the progress of key initiatives whether they were part of an ongoing evolution or to revolutionize the company through integration of an acquisition, organizational change management, etc.
The recurring theme throughout Andy's career has been a focus on achieving results through developing staff, both individually and in teams. Andy firmly believes that one of the key deliverables of a Roffensian Consulting engagement should be the development of client staff to improve their capability to undertake similar future initiatives without relying on outside consulting support.
Andy's résumé is rounded out by his engaging and approachable personality. Whether it be through written articles, teaching, or speaking engagements Andy delivers his message in a way that his audience can relate to, and with a style that keeps their attention.
