Sense-making: from blogging to research methodologies

Mathemagenic

While on the technology side including those capabilities in the research tools is probably just a matter of time, I believe that addressing them methodology-wise provides a bigger challenge. My experiences of sense-making as a flexible, intuitive and messy process raise questions about finding a methodologically sound way to accommodate for those : If expertise is difficult to articulate , how would you specify (for example) explicit coding criteria to pinpoint patterns?

An Open Letter to Project Managers, the New Rock Stars

Partnering Resources

Stop resisting project management methodology. But the methodology is there for a reason: to prevent you from reinventing the basics, such as catching up every person on what happened at the last meeting, so you can focus your attention on innovating where it matters. Let the methodology do its work for you, and focus on the freedom of creating within set boundaries. Get creative within the methodology. First things first: Project managers rock.
