What others are saying about Larry

Charlie Tupitza, Acting CEO at National Forum for Public-Private Collaboration

Larry Cooper is a strategic contributor of critical thinking in support of the National Foundation for Public-Private Collaboration (NFPPC) mission.  He joined our Board of Advisors in early 2017.

In September 2017 Larry led an International collaborative workshop of senior executives from the US, UK, and Canada representing both the public and private sectors in Washington, D.C. This workshop led to a deeper understanding of the NIST Cyber Security Framework and its utilization in protecting the strategic goals and objectives of public and private organizations, regardless of their size.

Larry’s work also contributed to an expanded interest in cyber-threat insurance in both the USA and Canada which will contribute to the resilience and sustainability of countless small and medium-sized business across the continent. I would highly recommend Larry as a strategic advisor to executives and organizations who need critical breakthrough thinking.

Over the years I have been able to draw on Larry’s deep knowledge, experience, and generosity in sharing his wisdom.

He contributed hugely to defining what Value Management actually means when we worked together developing Learning Outcomes for the ICAgile Value Management pathway. He kept us focused, asked tough questions and gave expert advice that really helped us produce something that has contributed to thought leadership in the community.

He is a regular author, contributor, and podcast interviewee to InfoQ and his articles are always deeply thoughtful, getting to the essence of the topic and providing great advice to our readers/listeners.

He’s also a really nice person who it is a pleasure to know.

Larry presented to my graduating class in the Certificate in Project Management at Algonquin College in December 2010 on the topic “Outcomes Management: Prelude to a Portfolio”. Both I and the students found him to be engaging and able to explain complex concepts in clear and understandable terms.

He provided great insight for the graduating students into what makes good project managers. They do a lot more than just create project plans and schedules – they take the time to understand both the problem the eventual system is really intended to solve and for whom it is intended to solve it using outside-in thinking and focusing on the outcomes that matter.

I would highly recommend Larry as a speaker.
