Brett Harned is a digital project management consultant, coach, and community advocate from Philadelphia, PA. His work focuses on solving issues that are important to organizations who want to produce quality digital projects in harmony. He loves building processes and communication tactics that work not only for projects, but for the people involved in them. His most recent role was as Vice President of Project Management at Happy Cog, where he mentored a team of PMs and managed projects for companies like Zappos, MTV, and Monotype.
Brett began blogging about his adventures in project management when he realized that the perceptions of the positions were just a little off. Since, he has spoken at events like SXSW, written for .net magazine and pmhut.com, started a daily blog called everydayDPM.com, taught web project workshops all over the globe, and has led the biggest, most satisfying project of his career: the Digital PM Summit.
When he isn’t wrangling processes and people, he likes to discover new music, experiment with photography, and explore the City of Brotherly Love with his wife and two daughters.
