“A couple of months ago, I clicked on a hot article by Tim Bryce. I liked what I read so I went to his site to read more and I am so glad that I did. Tim is one of those folks I call a “sleeper”. He is here but he just goes quietly about his craft not necessarily seeking or needing anything from anyone. He is one of those people that you just instantly like. Judging from the way he writes, I really believe that he has the ability to bring some order and understanding into just about any state of chaos. He can attack most any subject and take it from a new perspective. It will always be interesting. He can be very objective and fair but I suspect that he can tell it like it is when he wants to do that. He writes in a way that just inspires. He slowly takes things apart and puts them back together right before your eyes. When he finishes with a subject, you really understand it or you really understand how you feel about it. He still believes in those things that made America great, work ethic, honor, duty, your word, consideration for your fellowman. When you read his work, you will believe in those things as well. Tim can get any subject down to the reader’s level and get the intimidation out of it for the reader. He does that by creating an empathy with his reader and he does it well. Just reading his work has created a lot of reader awareness in me for my writing. If you have doubts, go to his site and read the piece on cigars. You will see. If I were directing a hostage crisis or mediating a labor contract, I would want Tim Bryce with me. I’d win too!”

“The Blog description is so right. You might not always agree with Tim but he always makes you stop and think, and I mean universally. Even being from Finland, the topics are so relevant that it is a pleasure to ponder them.”

“We engaged Tim to bring the PRIDE methodology to Atlantic Electric. The methodology, along with an estimating system we developed locally, allowed us to bring in projects on time, on or under budget, and within 3% = – on labor estimates. If I sound like a bigot in favor of using development methodologies I am. The methodology was so flexible that it allowed us to model our process for new tools and different development languages.”

“Mr. Bryce’s presentation to our group of South Florida Business Analysts took place at Carnival Cruise Lines offices in Q1/ 06. Per my request to him, he responded in the affirmative with professional grace and flexibility per format/content. His presentation was engaging, highly intellectual, with clear focus and, in short, rewarding for all attendees. Mr. Bryce is extremely knowledgeable, well published, possesses a large idea-base and is very generous in sharing, and discussing, his life-work, including overseas-work anecdotes, with other professionals regardless of their seniority or level of experience.”

“Tim has deep skills in project management and Information Technology. With his three decades of experience in consulting with the “PRIDE” family of IT management tools, around the world, he understands the IT industry issues with a truely global perspective. Tim is also very experienced in corporate communications and technical marketing, providing effective leadership in that area during the time that we worked together at M&JB. Tim is a great guy to work with, and a real team player.”

“While at Elizabeth Arden I had the pleasure to work closely with Tim on the implementation of the “PRIDE” methodology on a global basis within the Arden IT organization. Tim proved to be a subject matter expert on “PRIDE” and on the architecture required within an organization to support it. Since then Tim and I have continued to collaberate on IT initatives and issues of the day. Tim is highly articulate, intelligent, entraprenaurial, and a state of the art IT professional.”

“Early in my career at Atlantic Electric we purchased a project management methodology and a system development methodology from Tim’s company, M. Bryce & Associates. I found Tim to be more than just a vendor selling a product. I viewed Tim as more of a mentor and coach with respect to project management and system development. His products always seemed like just a means to the end. Tim’s mentoring and coaching helped me grow professionally more than any class I have ever taken. And you can take it from me, even to this day; Bryce’s Laws are spot on.”
