Topic Teasers Vol. 125: Why Use Predictive Analytics?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: My latest project is to work with a small team to see if we need to add predictive analytics to our already brimming list of desktop applications. Frankly, I don’t see that we use even half of the features that we have now, but maybe some departments find value in them. To be honest, not being a math person, I don’t really understand why finding that we are 20% higher or 32% lower on some random statistic would do anything to help the business. The oddity is there! That doesn’t change anything for next month or week. What am I missing?

Topic Teasers Vol. 118: What Can I Do Quickly?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I seem like I am constantly facing problems that have no easy or ideal solutions. Since I work in an environment with only myself as a project manager, I have no colleagues I can ask for advice. How can I stop second-guessing myself regarding whether or not I am making good decisions for how to move forward in bad situations?

Topic Teasers Vol. 117: Keeping up With Emerging Technology

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I am more in the manufacturing or fabrication part of project management, but often my teams and I are working with an IT team to create a hybrid product. It’s not that I need to do their work, it’s just that sometimes I feel stupid when I talk to the other team because I don’t understand some of the terms they are using. Or, once they explain them to me…I knew that idea all along, but I had heard it called by another name. How can I get a quick glimpse of what new ideas I need to know and what they are called without spending too much of my already overbooked day researching what to even learn?
