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

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.

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

Can this bring about greater efficiency, or are these just distracting trends that’ll bring the workforce to its knees?!

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="588"] Technology has come a long way for the workforce. It's time we change the way we manage work too.[/caption] Workforces change. And while every change—more distant teams, for example, or an increased telecommuting presence—can present a challenge, each offers a distinct advantage. These aren’t silver linings that you have to look for, either. This isn’t a matter of glass-half-full versus glass-half-empty; the workforce, work environment, and project management has evolved into a whole new ballgame. Now, let’s get into ways you can play better. WAY THE WORKFORCE HAS EVOLVED #2: Teams are becoming more distributed Like we mentioned in the... Read More
