I am a professional services practice manager with current accreditations in project, programme, and portfolio management. I have experience of delivering software and consulting services to international ports, climate change sector, transportation, and the public sector in New Zealand and the United States. Several of those deliveries have won international accolades. I have a Bachelors degree in computing and am currently pursuing an Executive MBA, am a member of the Project Management Institute, and a committee member of the Prince2 User Group. I share my professional views with my peers through my blog Project Management in Practice, and twitter.
Project lifecycle is about people, planning, communication, collaboration and processes. Each project face unique challenges in its lifecycle. This blog discusses these challenges and how leadership can tackle these challenges.

Facilitation, in an organisational context, is finding ways to help groups of people to work together more effectively to achieve goals, and is generally done by a Facilitator who holds a neutral position apart from the individuals and teams involved, and is only interested in ensuring the right things are done the best way possible. Sounds a lot like a Project Manager's role, and indeed it is - but professional facilitators have a huge collection of tools and techniques that few PMs I've met have even heard of, never mind be sufficiently familiar with to use effectively. This blog is my attempt to introduce some of these tools and techniques to my fellow Project professionals. Why "The Dark Arts ..."? Because many of these techniques seem at least in part more an art than science - they certainly aren't the sort of well-defined process and templates that PMs are familiar with. And some are decidedly dark - using psychological and emotional manipulations to help the participants discover things about themselves that they didn't know, and learn how to overcome some negative behaviours and blocks.
