Project Failure as a Scapegoat for Organizational Failure (Part 3)

by Majeed Hosseiney

Organizations often talk of project management failure and put us in a vicious cycle of cause/effect analysis loops. The problem is that we look for the cause of project management failure where the light is--and not in the dark spot where the true issue is. This three-part series helps to uncover some key underlying and recurring sources of confusion within organizations. Part 1 looked at decision-making dilution; Part 2 explored methodological and structural confusion. We now turn our attention to leadership pollution and conclude our series.

Technology Supports Process, Technology Undermines Process

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

While process frequently fails to allow for flexibility, technology often doesn’t even consider the possibility. Once we begin to automate a process, the presumption—and it’s a dangerous one—is that all cases are treated equally.

Agile Portfolios: A 3-D Approach

by Lourdes Medina, PMP, PfMP, ITIL, CSM

Portfolio management is responsible for translating strategy, changes, innovation and dynamism into value for an organization.
