And the winner of the 2018 PMI Fellow Award is ...

It’s often said that the most important asset in any organization is its people. It’s true in the public sector, it’s true in the private sector and it’s definitely true here at Management Concepts. We can deliver superior solutions not just because we have great course content, but because we also have amazing, highly-qualified instructors with a passion for teaching.

One instructor that we are extremely proud of is Cynthia Snyder-Dionisio. It turns out that we aren’t alone in finding her exceptional. On Saturday, Cynthia was named a Project Management Institute (PMI) Fellow at the 2018 PMI Professional Awards Gala. The PMI Fellow Award is the highest and most prestigious individual award presented by the Project Management Institute for service to the organization and profession. With membership of over 500,000, and almost 1 million certified project managers around the globe who are potentially eligible for the award, this is no small feat.

Cynthia Snyder-Dionisio

2018 PMI Fellow Award Recipient

Cynthia has had a remarkable career with Management Concepts since she joined us in 2004. She played a pivotal role as a lead consultant and instructor on multiple key accounts such as Medtronic, ViaSat, NASA and NASA JPL.

But perhaps the biggest feather in Cynthia’s cap was being a key part of the Management Concepts team that developed the Federal Acquisition Institute’s Federal Acquisition Certification for Program and Project Managers (FAC-P/PM) curricula for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The VAAA considers the FAC-P/PM certification to be one of the most successful training programs in the Federal Government. Ms. Dionisio was awarded a letter of commendation signed by the Chancellor of VAAA, based on her work on this project. Subsequently, Cynthia developed our popular PMP Exam Prep Bootcamp based on the updated PMBOK 6th edition.

High quality work, high caliber professional. We could not agree more with the PMI decision to name her a Fellow. Congratulations, Cynthia!
