An international focus
Amin speaks Mandarin Chinese and Japanese and is fluent in Bahasa Indonesia (as well as English!). His international outlook and experience working with teams across the US and Asian has given him a unique perspective on multicultural project management. He is currently based in Los Angeles.
“I am very passionate about sharing the philosophy and principles of traditional Japanese karate in managing our core energies to prevent burn out,” says Amin. “I hold a first degree black belt in traditional Japanese karate from SKIF (Shotokan International Federation), Tokyo, Japan. I am also a two-time finisher of the Honolulu Marathon.” So he has plenty of stamina for the demands of a PMP prep course!
Amin is also an experienced author. “I have authored three books: Karate Project Management, Agile Done Well, and PMP Examination Preparation Strategies,” he says.
Amin knows PMI well and has held a number of senior volunteer positions with the organization. He was the SME for professional development in Region 7 (which covers California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Hawaii) and has been program director, vice president and president of the PMI Honolulu Hawaii Chapter.
