About this Blog

Rudolf Melik is the author of The Rise of the Project Workforce: Managing People and Projects in a Flat World, and is the CEO and a co-founder of Tenrox. In his writings and speeches, Rudolf explores the ways that companies can thrive in a world where rapid technological advances and globalization are changing how we get work done and manage the people who do it.

Under his leadership, Tenrox, the leader in Project Workforce Management enterprise software, has grown to a company with more than 130 employees, and more than 800 customers worldwide.

In The Rise of the Project Workforce, Rudolf shows how the flattening of the world has fundamentally transformed the structure of the organization and nature of work. Globalization, projectization, fragmentation of the enterprise (including outsourcing), and real-time collaboration across the planet have enabled companies to reduce costs, leverage a global talent pool, and execute challenging deliverables with a dispersed yet incredibly connected project workforce. These shifts are changing the way we work, collaborate, and make business decisions. Rudolf explains the challenges that companies face in today’s business environment and shows how to leverage these changes and new technologies to beat the competition.
