York, PA, April 19, 2014 --( Brian Sullivan of Boston has been hired as Principal Consultant by Stambaugh Ness Business Solutions (SNBS).

Brian conducted training and support to more than 200 project managers, principals, and directors.

That puts their project managers in a position to manage their firm’s largest projects and most important clients. Proactive firms properly train project managers and give them the information they need when they need it.”

Brian notes, “I preach to firms to marry a project manager’s compensation plan with the metrics that they provide them. Give a project manager what he/she needs when they want it. Project managers need to be a part of the discovery and design phases of any implementation involving project management tools,” he continues. “Training project managers about Deltek Vision is very near and dear to my heart.”
