Larry M. Joseph, PhD, PMP Principal, Joseph Associates LLC, has diverse experience in both public and private sectors including project/program management, new venture formation, technology assessment, strategy development and strategy implementation. This experience in managing complex projects and programs is extensive and has contributed to his current global consulting/teaching practice. Its emphasis is on the strategic aspects of program management and project development for energy, information technology, and defense industry clients.
After receiving his PhD, he accepted a faculty position at the University of Illinois. In a period of growing energy problems, he left academia to accept a position at the Department of Energy. Over his 15 year involvement in the government, he managed several large international programs oriented toward meeting the Nation’s energy needs from domestic natural resources while satisfying current and future environmental standards. These innovative program established many new approaches to cost shared partnerships that have become a standard for similar initiatives throughout the government. His tenure in the government was punctuated by a five year stint in the private sector that focused on technology development. With the maturing of the programs that he initiated, Joseph left the government to start a consulting practice and return to a more active role in teaching. He has adjunct faculty positions at three universities, has developed academic and executive education programs, and has taught them worldwide. He has helped global companies in the energy, information technology, and defense industries deal with implementing complex, strategic initiatives using project, program, and portfolio management. He has taught extensively on a world-wide basis in the areas of energy policy as well as project, program, and project portfolio management.
