We all want to be trusted partners with our clients. And, although we never think we will end up in court, are you prepared for the liability that such an association brings? Tales From an Expert Witness may open your eyes to what this and other declarations such as following industry standards, can do to you in court. Read more: http://vs2vl.co/bfr-ExpII

Too often, people start with process. Process is important, but in organization change management (OCM) there are only a few processes and they are not mutually exclusive. In this article I try to explain who they relate. Please take a peek and tell us you r experience. http://vs2vl.co/BFR-OCM

I had a great interview with +Phil Hall  of Business Superstar , we talked about what you do and don't do to rescue your project.  

Avoid blame and build trust, never hastily fire people they have the answers, use data proactively - Squeeze the numbers hard enough and they will tell you the truth; it’s integral to their job.  I wrapped by explaining what to do if your project isn't recoverable.

Leadership is at the core of project management. Although it has taken PMI a few decades to get on board, they are slowly getting there.  FedEx calls out 9 key traits of a leader ad we should all take a close look at them and practice them on a daily basis.  http://vs2vl.co/VV-prjld

In today's world of matrixed organizations we rarely have authority over the people reporting to us. Regardless of the corporate structure, we do not have any over our stakeholders. So what is the best way to lead these people? We have to or our projects will fail. What do you do? http://vs2vl.co/NoAuth

Leadership is more than leading the people who report to you. As a project manager, you need to lead a team which you rarely have any authority over. The absence of hierarchical advanta

It is probably not that our executive are truly obstinate, but it may be that you are not doing a good job at selling your idea. Yes, it is on you to make them buy it.

We visit the Forlorn regularly. They are great lakes and, as Aurora Skye points out, can be very cold in the early summer. Our visit on the weekend of July 18, 2015 was very nice and the lakes were swimmable (even to our 5-year-old) and this weekend (Aug 1-2) they were very warm. The campground is clean and quiet.As there is no potable water supply, we get ours from a Lost Creek about 0.2 miles east of the NF 6035 and NF 60 intersection. The huckleberries are wonderful this time if year and just up the road the East Crater Trail is a great 3 mile hike to Junction Lake on the PCT

The car was fine the service was severely lacking in three areas: 1) As a frequent user of Enterprise (it is the companies preferred provider) I used the kiosk. However, I was treated like a second class citizen when I reached the lot. They took care of the counter people first. I was left waiting as other went past. 2) There is no signage to do rental return. You need to load use a map to return the car. No one as I was getting my car told it it had to be returned to the opposite side of the airport and that signs would not guide me there. 3) When I complained to the attendant at return. He did not care least about my complaint. He said the counter people told me. I had to tell him I used the kiosk. Then he said the people at check out gave me a map. They did not, not do I remember the option, and a map would not help if they did not tell me that there were no signs to follow. If this person worked for me, he would no longer be employed. TCW
