Why Project Managers Fail

Evolving Web

I’ve managed a lot of projects. As the science of project management evolves, we are clearly learning that managing based on guess work is a recipe for consistent failure. In the end, agile projects still obtain their backlogs in bulk and gather up-front estimates prone to error.

Partnering Resources

First things first: Project managers rock. There is simply too much at risk for companies to let so much depend on the project managers. Here’s how you can rock your projects.

Carla warns about the dangers of fake-work projects , and what to do to avoid the same: " When I first started working from home, I established basic productivity ground rules: no extended personal calls during office hours, no watching daytime TV and very limited time for personal tasks.
