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 $450M+ 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 3,000 subscribers. Click here to learn more and sign up.

You can find me elsewhere on Linkedin and Twitter.


How Will My Writing 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…

  • Leadership & Managing People
  • Project Management
  • Frameworks & Tools
  • Lean Construction
  • Learning & Growth
  • Mental Health
  • Productivity

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.
