Useful and helpful. Ever must being all documented!

These video's are great, but I have to disagree with Project Managers being "bad" if they're at their desk often. I suppose the environment dictates, but I spend most of my time communicating via phone and follow-up email, so stakeholders have something tangible to work with. Making project charters, and plans and such also takes place at the desk and consumes a lot of time. Nothing exists until it's documented.

Great Video! Apologies for chiming in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you researched - Weydaniel Organized Dominator (should be on google have a look)? It is a smashing one off guide for getting 7000 plus project management and business templates minus the hard work. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend after many years got astronomical success with it.

You are right barnes & noble are still walking, Amazon is just "running"/"using a scooter" from the start till now.
Mikael Arhelger (2 years ago)
Call me old fashioned, but before knowing how to run (digital era), one needs to know how to walk (traditional approach).
gagan (2 years ago)
+Fredo many of these points are still relevant
Fredo (2 years ago)
You are right, I am just surprise that at digital era people still are delivering traditional approach. My bad, I apologize

Are "table stakes" something you season and serve with sauce?? I thought they were to price for being at the table, or the minimum requirement? Stakes not Steaks?? Could be wrong though
TooManyBrackets (2 years ago)
No kidding? Just just found her use of language in the first 60 seconds quite curious. Unless of course she is project managing a casino!
2dfx (2 years ago)
+TooManyBrackets Steak = meat Stake = something to be lost or gained, something you put into the ground

Good video; I am all of these, especially mobile and collaborative, yet I'm getting fired because Upper mgmt has undermined my efforts by A. joking about how no one likes the business unit I represent and B. no one reports to me, so they dont have to do the work. Mgmt doesn't clearly establish it as a priority. PM in a dysfunctional organization is the worst. I moved to a new city for this job, and ended being the scapegoat for their mess. No man alone can manage up enough to change the world by themselves.
Brent Cairns (1 year ago)
Jane- I am pleased you have reflected well on this topic. I believe your next company will better appreciate your skills. All the best!
Jane S (1 year ago)
No, you misunderstand me, I would never joke about my area of responsibility, that would just undermine my credibility. The company jokes about my area as being something no one wants to work on because they have other fish to fry, essentially. Everyone sort of rolls their eyes at it. Not the same in all companies, I've worked elsewhere where I was a rockstar because my project was the golden child project. Leadership should not favor one over another though, in any case.

Jane S The number 1 thing a company wants is a serious, dedicated person that can understand all concepts on what the company needs to get the job done. You may think you fall into this category but do you have what it really takes? From a business stand point a company doesn't want someone who jokes around about their area in the business field. So you said you were getting fired for joking around right? Look at it from your perspective if you were an owner of a business would you really want someone to joke around about their own job? I most certainly wouldn't. In fact I would probably fire them also. The thing is it really depends on what your job is. Project managers have a VERY important role in the business field. No company wants a person to joke around about that at all. Why? Because your the one who plans to get the job done. Other staff members don't want a leader who jokes around a lot about their own job because then the other staff feel like you aren't taking your job seriously leading to them feeling like you aren't worthy enough for them. Understanding another persons point of view is SOOOO important in this job.

If i assume right than that means 1 of 3 things. 1 management may have a point 2. they're not understanding what your presenting to them basically you have to find a way to positively persuade them or 3 they're a negligent company and you need to persuade them or convince them or get a 3rd party involved potentially another company i dunno what else to suggest :') good luck Jane S.
Jane S (1 year ago)
bategs900 I did, yes. They considered it whining, instead of constructive feedback and a cry for help to make some much needed improvements to the system.
ravi rational (3 years ago)
Good or Bad for who? You can't make all people happy always. Project sponsor perspective a PM is good if he delivers goods, but the same PM might look like a stringent and mean manager for most of the team who work for him. In my opinion, instead of taking pressure trying be a SuperMan PM, better to set priorities and be practical and try to work towards making your sponsor happy, because at the end everyone cares about the bottom line and crossing the line. So don't strive to be good, just try to achieve the goal set by your sponsor even at the cost of looking bad in the eyes of the rest.

I sit at my desk, because I have to wait for developers to write code and can't be bugging them every 5 minutes. I hope that's ok. And I'm busy creating my plans etc. etc. which yes, allows me to answer questions and give feedback rapidly. I found some contradictions in those statements. However, I enjoyed your presentation immensely.
bategs900 (1 year ago)
Joey Fish you don't have to take everything she said literally. pick and choose what relates to you and then mold it to your own perspective. Just because she said good PMs are mobile doesn't mean you are a bad PM for seating at your desk while waiting for developers to write code.

I'm sorry but all the hand movements are very distracting for me to keep my focus on the talk.

the reputation of a pm depnds on how he is supported by the HO in the means of material supply if the HO fails PM also fails
Duane Tilden (4 years ago)
Great video, well presented. PM is definitely an art supported by science. I tend to be a "results merchant" and "table stakes" is a great way of simplifying what could become a complicated definition. Thanks!

How many good PM have you meet? Kinda like common sense.
MoronAntidote (5 years ago)
I've never met a good project manager. I'm getting out of engineering because of this.
bategs900 (1 year ago)
MoronAntidote maybe you met engineers trying to be project managers. I have learned that engineers are not good project managers in my experience in the engineering industry. they don't see the big picture. All they care about is getting the work done. This mentality usually runs projects down the hole. You need good PMs? find someone with a management/Business degree.
Oganesyan Artyom (5 years ago)
I would add an #14 Honesty It's important to be really honest with customer, with team, with sponsor and try to be such one with all of stakeholders
Very good class that help to understand how better our project manager skills.
