I’m looking forward to being back in Dallas next week.  On Tuesday, May 21st, I will be speaking at the 13th Annual UT Dallas Project Management Symposium at the UT Dallas Campus.  This is a big event and I’m delighted to have been asked to speak there.  My topic is “Managing Resource Risk in an Uncertain World”.  If you plan to attend the conference, please make sure to say hello.

It’s been a busy time around here.  Aside from a may product release at HMS as we launched TimeControl 7.3, I’ve had some other activities underway.  This week I was delighted to be able to do a talk with the ProjectSummit*Business Analyst World conference in Orlando.  I do some volunteer time with the advisory board of the PW*BA conference.  I’ve been associated to ProjectWorld since the very first conference ever in Toronto over 20 years…

There I am at the PMI 2016 Global Congress in San Diego listening to keynote speaker Sue Gardner.  Ms. Gardner’s resume is enough to make you pause and take notice.  She has worked with numerous Silicon Valley companies including Wikimedia who run the famous Wikipedia.  She has been on Fortune Magazine’s 100 Most Powerful Women list and that alone is saying quite a bit.  So, I was interested to hear her views on the future…

As I mentioned here in the blog earlier this year, I will be speaking next week in San Diego at the prestigious Project Management Institute’s Global Congress North America.

If you are going to the Global Congress and would like to talk to me in person, please…

Next week I’ll have the pleasure of visiting the Minneapolis/St-Paul area to speak at the Minnesota chapter of the PMI as they host their Professional Development Days event.  I’ve been asked to speak on two subjects and I’m only too happy to do so.  On Wednesday, September 14th I’ll be talking about Creating Business Prioritization for Projects and Portfolios where we’ll discuss how creating priorities for our projects is more about understanding our business imperatives than it is…

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be speaking this September at the prestigious Project Management Institute’s Global Congress North America.  The conference is in San Diego California this year from September 25th to 27th.  My topic is inspired by someone I think every project manager should read about: Buckminster Fuller.  It is entitled “Just call me Trim Tab”.  I’ll be sharing more about this upcoming paper in the weeks to come. For more information on…

It’s what everyone wants but almost no one gets: Enterprise-wide resource capacity planning.  Just what makes getting this accomplished so difficult? I’m sure I hear it at least once a week (during a trade show, twice an hour), what organizations are asking of their project management system boils down to enterprise-wide resource capacity planning.  Now I know that everyone has a little of the “grass is greener on the other side” syndrome where you think…

Services are a key factor in the success of project management software vendors.  With the trend towards certification how will clients know who has the skills they require? I thought I’d spend some time talking about one of the most significant elements of technology deployment in the project management sector – services.  With numerous project management software vendors, the revenue from services outweighs the revenue from software sales.  Perhaps that’s a good thing.  After all,…

Ok, it’s a strange title for a blog post but so is the circumstance. I’ll be in Scottsdale, AZ (A suburb of Phoenix) at the end of September for the Hard Dollar Conference.  I’ll be co-presenting a paper with Erik Marthinsen, the President of BASEMETHOD of Calgary.  We’re speaking on how to solve sub-contract management challenges by using a combination of Hard Dollar’s HD PCM and TimeControl Industrial.  The Hard Dollar InEight Experience 2014 conference…
