Developing AT&T's Project Management Process

My involvement with the AT&T project management process began in 1987 when I happened to sit at the same table with Dan Ono at a dinner meeting of the Southern California Chapter of PMI.Dan was then in charge of project management for Southern California and Hawaii for AT&T’s major projects to install new telecommunications/information systems on a client’s premises. We met a few days later to discuss how their current project management process might be improved to respond to the tremendous competition AT&T was getting after their divestiture of the Bell operating companies and the accompanying deregulation of the telecommunications industry.
