I was once asked, “How do you know how to get somewhere when you don’t know where you are?” This question is one that organizations should be asking themselves regularly.

I love challenges. When someone says, “You can’t do that”, watch out. I do everything I can to do it, within reason that is.

I recently brought my little red sports car (a 2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder which I named Boris) into the shop for repairs. Boris had been sitting in my garage for almost five years. He needed extensive repairs and money was in short supply. I know you’re asking, “what’s this have to do with program and [...]

By |2020-03-26T15:26:22-04:00August 22nd, 2018|

If you’re a Project Manager, I would bet you have found that, at times, you are required to lead in all directions, up, down and across. Doing so makes you a 360 Degree Project Manager. Even when you aren’t a project manager, I suspect that all consultants are 360-degree leaders. I’m an avid John C. [...]
