Project Management Philosophy

Over the years, I have worked with a broad range of organizations and projects, bringing planning, facilitation, communication, asset-development, and team-building skills to each project. All come under the umbrella of project management. Effective project management always requires planning and strong communication and often requires assembling or identifying resources that will enable implementation of the plan or activities.

I have found that the most successful projects are those that involve high-functioning teams, so one of my goals is to bring out the best in every team I work with. I’ve learned that excellence results when people are engaged, informed, feel respected by their peers, and own the end product.

This page features a few of the projects I have worked on and which I count it a privilege to have been part of.

Michelle Landsverk has helped HRDC, NWRDC and Northwest Minnesota Foundation align activities for the benefit of Northwest Minnesota, producing substantive results. I am very comfortable recommending Michelle Landsverk to facilitate important community and economic development projects.
