PTCMW lost a much-valued friend and colleague on March 26, 2016, with the passing of James L. Outtz (1947-2016), after a four-year battle with cancer. Dr. Outtz earned his Ph.D. in I/O from the University of Maryland in 1976 under Professor Irv Goldstein. As President of Outtz and Associates, Washington, DC, James worked as an I/O consultant to government and private industry, as well as serving as an expert witness in many high-profile court cases. James distinguished himself for his innovative research and practice in the development of employee selection procedures with minimum adverse impact while retaining validity. He was a popular speaker at professional conferences and received many professional honors. He was SIOP’s 2016 President-Elect at the time of his death.
