Curt Finch is a pioneer in time and project management technology. He has managed development teams creating enterprise-level software solutions since 1985. In 1992, he led the team porting Tivoli's product line to the AIX operating system, which resulted in the company's acquisition by IBM. As a member of the executive team, Curt helped launch TKG, a venture-backed firm that grew to 50 employees and $7.5 million in sales by the time he left.
As a software programmer fixing bugs for IBM in the early ‘90’s, Curt Finch found that tracking the time it took to fix each bug revealed the per-bug profitability. Curt knew that this concept of using time-tracking data to determine project profitability was a winning idea and something that companies were not doing – yet…In 1997, he created the world's first web-based timesheet application – the foundation for both Journyx Timesheet and Journyx ProjectXecute.
Curt earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Virginia Tech in 1987. Curt is often called upon to speak at conferences and events, and frequently writes articles for many leading publications. Curt's first book, "All Your Money Won't Another Minute Buy: Valuing Time as a Business Resource" provides insightful commentary on the principle that all people and businesses have a right to perform work that the market will reward them for. He is currently working on his second book on project execution.
