ProjectManager.com
There are some words that project managers have come to dread: "Can you deliver it faster?" Spend enough time as a project manager or with project sponsors and you'll realize that this question gets asked a lot, and they don't always want you to answer honestly! Normally, the expected answer is, "Yes," or at least, "I'll see what I can do."

End abusive behavior on your team
Harvard Business Review
Managers aim their abuse at those who are least likely to defend themselves. That is the finding of a disturbing new study by Pedro Neves (published in the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology), which looked at 193 supervisor/employee pairings in a variety of different industries.

10 things that all great project managers do
CIO
The numbers are not kind: an estimated one-half of IT projects fail, according to industry research. And the bigger they are, the harder they fall — about two of five tech projects budgeted at $15 million or more fail, and 17 per cent go so badly, that they threaten to put their organization out of business.

All decisions are based on mathematics
Herding Cats

ProjectManagement.com
For the second successive year, I am privileged to be a part of the ProjectManagement.com workshop series "Redefining the PMO" with Mark Price Perry. This year we are also joined by Dave Prior, who is providing some great insight on agile and PMOs.

Building innovation into project management
Econsultancy
Why do you do projects? For most organizations, the answer is usually something to do with change. "We need to add new features to our product. We need to improve the user experience in our online shop. We need to upgrade the technology running our site." That's kind of odd, when you think about it.
