Art of managing: Shiny objects and the senior management team
PM Hut
One of the value killers found inside many organizations is the out of control pursuit of too many new initiatives. The resultant too few resources chasing too many projects, is a sure-fire way to create organizational stress as initiatives fall short, inefficiencies skyrocket and employees, stakeholders and customers grow perturbed.

Version control, streamlined approval processes, and up-to-date editorial calendars are essential ingredients of successful content marketing efforts. Leave one out, and you risk dismantling entire campaigns.

Design your agile project, Part 4
No Fluff, Just Stuff
If you are thinking of agile as part of a program, each team has to have its own approach to agile. Why? Because each team has its own risks and problems. You don't need to standardize agile for anyone. If you treat people as if they are adults and explain the principles that you want (working software all the time and expose the interdependencies), provide training or whatever other resources they need, you are likely to get what you want.

The true corruption of agile: A rebuttal
Dr. Dobb's
Shortly after my last blog (The Agile Holocracy) hit the wire, "Uncle Bob" (Robert) Martin responded with a blog of his own that's definitely worth a read (The True Corruption of Agile). Though Bob thinks that he's rebutting my post, I find myself violently agreeing with many of (though not his main) points, so it seems like a little clarification is in order.

Why leaders need to shut up and listen
By C. Fredrick Crum

Project Management: Floccinaucinihilipilification
PM Hut
Have you ever felt floccinaucinihilipilification while estimating one of your projects? What's that you ask? Oh, let me Google that for you!
