Hi, I’m Kyle Nitchen.

I’ve been writing at KyleNitchen.com about leadership and professional development since 2016. I’m a Senior Project Manager that has built over $350M+ of construction projects, leveraging lean thinking and principles for reliable results.

I’m also known for my popular newsletter, The Influential Project Manager, which is sent out each week to more than 2,500 subscribers. Click here to learn more and sign up.

How My Writing Will Benefit You?

I'm an advocate for useful ideas. The central question I explore through my work is, “How can we reliably turn a vision into reality?”

To answer that question, I like to write about proven frameworks and tools that influence people and outcomes.

My writing focuses on topics like…

  • How leaders inspire and motivate their teams
  • How to become an Influential Project Manager
  • How to lead and deliver complex projects
  • How to provide predictable outcomes
  • How to minimize waste and maximize value
  • How to make good choices and avoid bad ones
  • How to accomplish more in less time
  • How to create better systems and processes

Most of all, I write about how to put these ideas into practice in daily life.

Most of the concepts I write about aren’t my own. They are ideas I discover and build upon after many hours of reading and research.

I don’t claim to have all the answers and I still have a lot to learn, but I’m happy to share what I’ve discovered so far. Hopefully, you’ll find it useful as well.

You can start by reading my articles.
