Kent Lacy, Ed.D., PMP
Professionally, I've been working within the technology field for over 30 years - specifically specializing in project management over the past 18 years. The initial years of my career were spent in the US Army. Upon leaving the military I worked as a computer programmer for several years before transitioning to Project Management. I currently work as a manager within the Project Management Office (PMO) of a large financial institution. I work on a team focused on ensuring that our global project management resource pool is fully utilized, engaged and working on proper project assignments.
From an academic perspective, I earned associate and bachelor’s degrees in information systems management while in the military from the University of Maryland. In 2000, I received an MBA from Metropolitan State University (Minnesota) and in 2009 received a doctorate in organization development from the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota). I've been fortunate to teach at several colleges and universities as an adjunct faculty member over the past fifteen years. For the past several years, I’ve focused on teaching courses in project management at The College of St. Scholastica.
I am married and live in Prior Lake, Minnesota. We enjoy traveling primarily to warm destinations in the winter. During the summer, we enjoy golfing at our family cabin in northern Minnesota.
I am really looking forward to working with you as part of this course offering.
