I want to help you to see news events as starting points for constructive conversations. I seek to cut through the froth of the political spin cycle to underlying truths and values. I want to be so focused on progress that together we can provide a credible and constructive counter-narrative to the hopelessness-, anger-, and fear-inducing brand of discourse that is so pervasive in the news.

One reply on “Can the Real Project Manager Please Stand Up?”

Well, I think the author certainly has a point there, arguing that cloud-based project management software has some advantages over classic on-premise software.
In my company we are using Jira Agile to organise our project. I like the idea of a self-organizing team that logs work, controls estimates and handles their work packages autonomously. BUT- I often feel that they still use the system to manipulate themselves. People remain people and if they feel there is something wrong and you dont have a culture in which delay and mistakes are okay, they will use this self-organizing system against you and you will use track of what’s really happening. So I think it is good to engage them, but you still need an on-premise plan that you can control.
Any other opinions that? Sadly the article does not give advice on software or special routines, so I found it a little too generic and less helpful for day-to-day-practise.
