  2. Ever been given a timeframe that seems impossible to hit? If you've managed projects for any length of time, you know what I mean. Your boss or customer thinks it can be done in a certain timeframe and you think it's going to take longer.

  3. Hey, I'm pretty good at the game "Flight Simulator" on the computer! Want to hop on a real flight with me at the stick?

  4. We can reasonably argue that continual change is not a problem with projects.

    It is, of course, but it's not worth complaining about because it's just the nature of the game. The problem is how we respond to change. It's not a matter of if change will happen on your project. It's only a matter of when.

    This is where project managers really earn their pay. In this video Andy Kaufman, PMP, host of the project management podcast entitled The People and Projects Podcast shares critical lessons about dealing with changes when delivering projects.

  5. Think of the last project that you delivered.... How do you know whether or not it was considered to be a success?

    I get to ask that question to people all over the world. More often than not, the responses people provide tend to be subjective. For example, "No one was yelling at me so it must have been good!"

    It's a question we need to ask up front, more often: "What does success look like?"

    In this video Andy Kaufman, PMP, host of the project management podcast entitled The People and Projects Podcast explains why unclear objectives cause projects to struggle, and how to create objectives to help you deliver a project successfully.
