Overcoming obstacles: Lessons for the manager in leading a project http://bcn.to/bbw

One of the benefits of becoming a certified Project Management Professional – apart from the generally higher rates of pay – is that you learn skills while training which give you an advantage when it comes to leading a project.

However, no matter how much you learn and develop your skills, there will come a time in your project management career when you will be given a task which deals with a product or technology you may have no experience of.

How you then deal with this is one of the defining moments for a project manager’s career and will influence the method by which you will deal with similar incidents going forward. Do you delay the project while you go away and find out more information? Do you halt productive conversations during meetings to ask your team to explain the basic principles of the subject matter concepts to you? Either of these would likely result in unnecessary delays to the project.
So where do you go from here?

See our new blog for methods on moving forward when leading a project: http://bcn.to/bbw

Where did the concept of project management originate? http://bcn.to/Xb
In a fascinating article, Rebekah Peterman talks about the concepts of project management and how it originated.

The piece is interesting as it takes the Wikipedia definition of project management…

“the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverable) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.

The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.”
…and then expands it to further explain how it became to be defined and who were the prime motivators in establishing the rules and criterion which the profession follows today through organizations like the Project Management Institute (PMI®).

Are you already a project manager? http://650h.rs/SG
Do your friends turn to you for help in the community or with an event? Do you always plan when going on vacation or make sure you have a shopping list before buying groceries?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, the chances are you’re already a project manager and just aren’t aware of it.

If you take the next step by earning the PMP® credential, you can show employers, colleagues and clients that you care enough to put effort into demonstrating your understanding of best practices and also open up on average a 20% higher salary.
In our new article we outline practical questions for people considering becoming a PMP®. See it here: http://650h.rs/SG #ProjectManager #ProjectManagement #PMP

Last month, President Barack Obama signed into law the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act – this is great news for the industry.

As studies from the Project Management Institute (PMI®) have shown over the years, certified Project Management Professionals (PMP®) earn on average up to 20% more than their non-certified colleagues. Knowing the value of project management certifications, experience and skills can be a great advantage for organizations seeking to fill project management roles, as well as for individuals competing to qualify for those roles.

The act will enhance accountability and best practices in project and program management throughout the federal government. The legislation, strongly endorsed by the PMI®, was approved by both chambers of Congress with overwhelming bipartisan support.
