Welcome to Project Management Point-of-View (PM-POV).
This podcast series gives you brief and insightful conversations with PM practitioners in a variety of disciplines.
Host Kendall Lott draws on his experience as a PM, as CEO of M Powered Strategies and as former CEO of PMIWDC to explore how project managers create value in surprising places.
Our guests discuss their unique perspectives on project management, its uses, its challenges, its changes, and its future.
Project Teams in a VUCA Context from the 2020 UMD Symposium
Covid-19 has changed the way we operate on every level, including how we manage projects. It has made clear the fragility of our reality, and the fancy dancing required, not only to survive, but to move forward constructively. In the 4th and last episode from our series highlighting presentations from UMD's 2020 Project Management Symposium, we focus on the leadership skills and approaches that are needed in today's volatile, fast-shifting environment.
View from the C Suite - Part 1
What do executives want from their Project Managers? What are their expectations? What do they like about how PMs work? What do they not like? In this first of two episodes covering the Executive Point of View, we talk to 10 executives from a wide spectrum of businesses - software, kitchen appliances, construction, defense, etc. - to find out what it is that executives value in their PMs.
Agile Today from the 2020 UMD Symposium
Scrum with distributed teams. Agile in a traditionally non-Agile environment. Project Management in the time of Agile: is it still relevant? These are the topics we cover in the third episode of our series from the 2020 UMD Project Management Symposium. Listen to highlights from the three presentations, along with follow-up interviews with the presenters.
Project Perspective: The Bigger Picture
How can you manage a groundbreaking innovation project while surrounded by auditors and compliance- and risk-managers? And how can you ensure that what you deliver will truly benefit the organization ? Two presentations from UMD's 2020 Project Management Symposium describe the pitfalls and offer solutions to both these questions.
Richard Wyatt talks about "The Project Management of Innovation," and Shane Perkins covers "Project Tricksters and Frauds: Why Benefits Realization Practices Matter."
Virtual PM: 2020 and Beyond
Ever since COVID-19 swept the globe, our world has shifted, and that includes the world of Project Management. A panel of digital project managers talks about the changes they have noted already and what they envision for the future vis-à-vis project environment, tools, and ways of meeting, collaborating and doing business. The possibilities are limitless and a brave new world awaits the Project Manager who is bold enough to seize the opportunities this moment affords.
Culture and Fit from the 2020 UMD Symposium
The first in a series featuring highlights from University of Maryland's 2020 Project Management Symposium focuses on culture and the importance of fitting in. We examine the hiring process, and maintaining a culture designed to retain top-notch staff. We also learn about a unique approach to stakeholder management. By observing organizational culture through an ethnographic lens, PMs can detect patterns and probabilities, and address potential gaps before they become a serious roadblock to project success.
