COMMUNICATIONS LESSONS FROM A BOYS FOOTBALL GAME

It was one of those rare 30 degrees C, grey cloudy days in Bahrain as I sat and watched my son play after school footie. The young lads jostled, tumbled, puffed and panted with full expression as they pounded up and down the field tirelessly after the ball.

 

My PM mind began wondering and drawing parallels with adults and project team dynamics back in the office. The referee, alias the Project Sponsor, was pacing up and down eyes fixated on the boys, blowing his whistle as and…

To Hop or Not to Hop?

I have a confession to make. Early in my career I was a bit of a job hopper. If I did not like how things were going or I felt it was time for a bigger raise, off I went. Of course that was a much different time and lucky for me, jobs were plentiful. I was also new enough to the field that each move did guarantee me a 10% or even greater salary increase.

 

By the way if you are still wondering what is the big confession? The admission that I was a job hopper is it; sorry if you…

PMP Exam Tip: Understanding Cost of Quality

The cost of quality (COQ) as it relates to project management is frequently misunderstood. It is a monetary figure but it does not solely relate to how much it will cost to provide a quality product or service through the project as most people initially believe.



Instead, COQ is also about the costs that will be involved to bring a product or service that is considered… Continue

The interview went well (so why didn't you get the job?)

This is a repost from a blog I wrote about a year ago. Hope it helps those of you in the hunt...

 

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on job interviews. Geez…at least 100 times.

But what I have come to know from those experiences is that much of the process is basically a crap shoot. For instance, when you think you did well, turns out you didn’t. When you thought you did poorly, they call you up and make an offer! I am convinced there is absolutely no rhyme or…

Social Media – Team builder or Time Waster

There continues to be a lot of chatter and skepticism about the use of social media in general and on projects in particular.  Articles abound with viewpoints pro and con.  We see personal career disasters like the recent use of Twitter by Congressman Anthony Weiner.   Yet the fact that social media applications like Facebook and Twitter are compelling to the point of addiction is undeniable.  The first news of Bin Laden was heralded not on television or radio, but via a…

Things to Do Today: Ask for Help

“Go ahead and tell me the steps you will take to complete this assignment.”



This is the question that none of my early supervisors ever asked me on the job. And boy was I relieved that they never asked this question. Why? Because I had no clue! When I was new on the job I was afraid to ask questions or to admit what I did not know. I would run back to my cubicle and frantically search for the information I needed to complete my new assignment.



I share this story when I… Continue
