About the author

Patrick Jonsson grew up in the Swedish woods in an Irish-Swedish family. He has an international background and has a double degree in International Business with focus on Economics. Over the last ten years he has made an international career focused in Sourcing and Project Management in an International context. 

After setting up a Nordic PMO which included Project Management Training, Patrick wholeheartedly felt that 20% of the Project Management Tools and Methodologies provide at least 80% of the value in companies. This means that there are significant returns on investment to be found by focusing in on the 20%. The Essence of Project Management provide a context for Project Management and provides the most important tools and techniques.

Patrick lives in Copenhagen together with is wife and two kids.
