Basecamp: An Evaluation Of An Excellent Project Management Program

Ask them to volunteer. To get honest feedback you can't pressure people to do this for you. Even you believe that you are an approachable person, your staff may have a different opinion. It's a difficult job to provide feedback to a higher ranked person. Therefore, give them the option to say no.

Even Barack Obama uses this to talk to the world. It takes some getting used to. What is important about this? Well it is such an individual item that there is no real competition. For this reason almost everyone works with it and not against it. You can use it to post across the board. You can connect your other social sites to it. Post once on Twitter and it is instantly beamed magically to all of the other sites. And you can try to gain those all important Followers.

Once your application is approved, you can make the payment. As you make the payment, one of two things may happen to you, either you will get the code to schedule the exam or you will be selected for an audit.

I would like to set the following goal "Everybody who can stay at home and do his or her job remotely should do that!" As we transition more and more toward "service" economy, we have a chance to eventually move everybody out of the main office, or at least 90% of us sitting in a computerized cage and laying golden eggs by processing information.

Oh I see, you have one million and one things to do and only a few weeks to finish all of them? Are you certain you have to do all one million and one of them? I don't want to hurt your feelings but I think that you just might be exaggerating. And this might be the perfect time to take a look at some management p best practices. So stop running for a few minutes and apply some management p to your life.

The assignment is just the start. Projects may come to you dressed as tasks or assignments. Stop. Don't just take the assignment. If you want to make a difference you have to listen to the assignment, and then start creating the project. Ask questions to further understand the situation. Investigate the big picture. Find out what the root cause of the request really is. Often leaders (and all of us) have a problem, come up with a solution then get someone to implement the task we identified - and too often that solution is only a band-aid, or won't solve the problem at all. The first way to excel in project work is to refine and redefine the project until it is something that really matters and can have real impact.

While this is listed last, it is really the first thing that needs to be done. The "how" will always appear if you know the "why". Why do networking events want more time? Why do you want to move forward? Why do would you make an extra effort to move ahead?

Problem solving: Problems will arise and a project manager won't always have the luck where he/she can predict them. However whether they are prepared or not they must have the skill and knowledge to be able to deal with the problem before it has an impact on the overall project. Therefore it is extremely important that a project manager has the ability to solve problems as they hit.
