A recent article entitled Entry, stabilization and renewal: the three phases of a new CIO published on Information Age had me drawing parallels to those that lead and manage projects. Particularly contract PPMs (Program and Project Managers not the certification) when getting to grips with a new project and organization. Following is a summary of the phases as outlined in the article for a new CIO. I’ve added my own thinking about the parallels for a new PPM. CIO ... Read More

Has the term “conflicting priorities” become a way of life in your organization? Unfortunately, prioritization is a problem in many companies, with employees often forced to work in an environment in which every task is considered Priority #1. But, we all know that this is hardly realistic, and the pressure of working under these conditions can take a serious toll. We already know that work-related stress alone costs U.S companies up to $300 billion a year, not to mention the loss of millions more in uncompleted projects. Why is Prioritizing so Hard? Here are just a few examples of priority predicaments. The Pants on... Read More

From day-to-day tasks to major initiatives, virtually every project moves along the same path from initiation to assignments, to execution and delivery. The problem is, it isn’t always quite so simple. Unexpected problems, hiccups in the workflow, do-overs, jumping ahead and trying to do too much with too few staff often result in critical oversights, missed deadlines, delivery delays and blown budgets. It seems more time is spent in meetings trying to figure out what to do next than is spent actually doing the work. Did you know? ... Read More

A lot has been said about the ways that things have changed. But what you can actually do to keep up with these new developments? Looking beyond traditional IT project management requires a change of perspective, so let’s dive right in. WAY TO EVOLVE YOUR PROJECT MANAGEMENT PRACTICES, #1: GIVE YOUR PEOPLE AUTONOMY Remember, the workforce is becoming more autonomous. This autonomy is something that employees want, and micromanagement or hovering supervisors constantly badgering about deadlines doesn’t make anyone feel good. This isn’t just a hope, either; with so many organizations offering their people this degree of increased flexibility, expectations are being... Read More
