We were sad to hear of the passing of Rita Mulcahy, Founder of RMC Project Management and the best-selling project management author. Rita passed away on Saturday, May 15th 2010, from complications related to a five-year battle with cancer. She was 50; Rita leaves behind husband Tim Mulcahy, current Vice-President and Chief Legal Counsel for RMC, and two children, ages 7 and 5.
Rita was diagnosed with cancer in September of 2005, and over the last five years worked to expand RMC’s training and product distribution to nearly 50 regions worldwide based on her innovative methodologies and learning techniques.
Rita’s books were a key source of information when we passed our PMP exam many years ago. Her focus on effective questions to encourage adult learning was one of the key inspirations for the development of Mosaic’s Mentored Email™ CAPM and PMP courses.
The Project Management industry has lost a passionate leader, advocate and friend.
