I was the curator thoughts in the case of documenta levin hundred curatorial assistant but i worked really closely with a curator's which obviously influenced my curatorial work later on. But when i worked for documenta and the biennial i was not a curator. Or in the case of documented eleven as a curatorial assistant whereas at the berlin biennial. I had different roles kind of like moved up the ladder from the third to the fourth to the fifth biennial so i ended up project manager in the fifth one but in all cases my positions where an kit in what was called the autistic office so it was working closely with the curator on the one side with the artists on the other sides. And so one would be also a care in that sense in the curatorial sense in carrying lots about the artists actually Being a mediator. Being a friend as well being in a sense trustworthy person you could share your thoughts with but also somebody who would be higher to make things possible.

The Importance of Successfully Introducing Yourself

"How to introduce yourself when you're brand in a branding leadership position or a brand new team or maybe you're a brand new project manager to certain project a lot of have been there and i've ever received a lot of over the years questions about this and they've answered them and i thought well this'll be episode because people seem to be concerned about it and i think i thought about those times i've been. I've been multiple times. And it's very stressful. It's when i think back because first impressions are crucial. And you don't want to be digging yourself out of whole from a bad first impression so you wanna make it as effective as possible in. I guess when we think about this there's multiple types of situations that you can be in. You probably have to handle them all a little bit differently. And as i was thinking about what i would talk about in this episode. I think i think about those times. Were even when i've coached a few clients when they've been brand new to position that there are certain situations that are different than others. For example i think the best situation to be in is if you become part of a brand new team or a brand new project that has that has never been formed before. I think you're a definite advantage when you're being one of the first one to join and create a legacy right and so that's when we think about team building and we think about leadership that's kind of the classical sense right 'cause now we we're all getting to know each other we're of going through this experience together. It's a great way to kind of do life together and share the ups and downs in the highs and lows. It's a great opportunity Particular when you've got a blank slate so that's one scenario. I think to me on the ideal scenario. The second one is an. I've had this happened a couple of times where you become the new member of an existing team or existing project. That's already good shape and they've been doing well. I think it's a good situation to be in. It is fraught with some risk though. Because you're the good thing going here you come late to the party essentially and you know how do you thread that needle without disrupting a good thing

Is Your Market Research Accessible?

"We're thinking about you know market research and creating products and services or you know Anything that we wanna put out into the market. What are some of the biggest issues that companies have With accessibility when it comes to kinda get gathering insights. Yeah i think one of the top reasons why projects aren't as accessible as a could be is because folks in the disability community or whatever community people were targeting are not included in the process of creation of project planning And all of that. So there's a phrase that's oftentimes used in in the disability inaccessibility worlds which is nothing about us without us so the reason why so. Many things are not accessible as because it's either an or people don't think about it at all in the process and they don't include Folks with disabilities in the design of those products are those design and not not only the design but also in the prep in the project claiming whatever project high in my past life. I was a project manager. And you make a plan. You make a project plan you make a plan with Risks you know. And how you're going to mitigate those risks and when you. You know one of the questions that i've asked over. The years is is one way to start a project is who might you be excluding from the start. Yeah that's an interesting question I think a lot of times people don't even know their excluding and i'm thinking about a conversation. We had on the show early in the year. Probably january one of our first episodes. Actually with eva cy from google and she was talking about how important it is in. You know building technology that the team.

Perseverance Rover, Ingenuity Helicopter, and the Search for Ancient Life on Mars

"On April 6th in this desolate Martian crater 170 million miles from Earth. Perseverance posed for a selfie with ingenuity. The little helicopter it had just dropped off. Two weeks later. The rovers cameras recorded ingenuity is historic First flight hovering 10 ft. Off the ground for 30 seconds. It may not look like much, but for those who work so long to make it happen. It was a reason to rejoice. Project manager Mimi on led the team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California that's been working on ingenuity for six years. How hard is it to fly a helicopter in Mars? Very, very, very hard. We really truly started with the question of is it possible? A lot of people thought it could not be done because it's really counterintuitive. I mean, you need atmosphere for the place to push atmosphere to get lived. The atmosphere on Morris is completely different than the world atmosphere at Mars is so thin. I mean the room we're in, right. It's compared to that It was 1% of the atmospheric density over there, so The question of really Can you generate enough lift, you know, to really build to lift up anything. That was a fundamental question. In subsequent flights. Ingenuity has gone higher and farther, traveling more than a mile in all over the surface of Mars. It is a triumph not only for NASA, but for its partners in the private sector, who helped make various parts of the helicopter. Don't Let it go. Don't freak out. Matt Keenan has a history of making unusual things that can fly as an engineer at a company called AeroVironment, which produces drones for military and civilian use. I mean, that's incredible 10 years ago for a military research project, Keenan and his team created this robotic hummingbird, which has a tiny camera on board. Whoa! Oh, there it is. Oh, my God. That's amazing. Keenan, an engineer, Ben Pipe Enberg led the AeroVironment team that created ingenuity is rotors motors and landing gear. Why was this so challenging because it has to be a spacecraft as well as an aircraft. And and flying it as as an aircraft on Mars is pretty challenging because of the density of the air That's similar to about 100,000

We Have to Be Project Managers of Elections and Conservative Principles

"Gave a speech this week at the Great Club 45. I've been talking about it all week in Palm Beach because I don't get out of my house at all. So these are really big events for me. It's like yes, I left. I went to a restaurant. So what? You don't understand? I never leave. But I gave this speech about a lot of great people. And 90% of the crowd understood that we have to fight on while still I hate the term getting to the bottom of, but let's just use it here for the sake of time getting to the bottom of what happened in 2020. Some people in the crowd about 10% didn't want to hear that. That's okay. I'm not here to lie to you. You your title to your opinion. Some people think we should focus on 2020 only and forget 2022 2024. It's not worth it until we do 2020. Your opinion. You're entitled to it. It is a free country with the big our God given right to speech. I just vigorously disagree. I know it's not efficient have to focus on two things to focus on two things strongly. And vigorously at the same time. President Trump clearly agrees. We darn well better get to the bottom of what happened in 2020. While simultaneously focusing on 2022. We can't just forfeit away 2022 because of 2020 shenanigans. I mean, how are we ever going to figure out what happened in 2020? If we continue to elect House Democrats and and and and Senate Democrats as well, you think Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are going to help us in that endeavor? Of course they won't. That's absurd. We have to focus on parallel tracks. Regardless of the inefficiency of it. I get it. The human brain wants to focus on one thing at a time. We don't have that option. We don't have that luxury. We are election project managers. Now we are project managers for liberty and freedom right now. There is a liberty and freedom movement. You all are the anointed ones. Go in Peace to love and serve. You are the project managers for liberty. And we have to multitask.

"Nasr's orion spacecraft takes off astronauts inside will be wearing new improved high tech spacesuits. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind ideas that shave our future at several points. During artemis missions astronauts will wear a bright orange spacesuit called the orion crew survival system suit the suits have been re engineered to improve safety and range of motion and will be custom fit to each crewmember. Here's dustin gohmert project. Manager for nasr's orion crew survival systems these updated spacesuits contain a fire resistant outer layer and stronger zippers and restraints that allow crew members to up quickly and stay at pressure longer. Well a lighter stronger helmet will improve comfort and communications updated. Gloves and boots will be provided. These suits can even keep astronauts alive for up to six days if orion was to lose cabin pressure. They're also equipped with a suite of survival gear. That could be used if necessary after the astronauts return to earth and splashed down in the ocean. astronauts will wear the suit on launch day in emergency situations during high risk parts of missions near the moon and during the high speed return

How businesses can leverage blockchain technologies

"Hello and welcome. I'm your host. Peter found the rough anywhere consulting in today's episode. We will talk about blockchain. We'll discuss how growing companies may approach blockchain. What they can get out from blockchain based technologies and how they can create meaningful products with blockchain to discuss the topic. I invited feted. Spencer from any volk analytics. Hey freddie. I'm glad you're with us today so i start. What led you to blockchain. So basically i studied computer science business and that's more than twenty years ago but the thing is why i mentioned is that i always like to work on the building bridges between different compartments. Are you know science studies. Whatever network as a project manager internet agency for almost two years as the head of project management than the internal consulting education and stuff like that so it was always like translating save agency. Translating the marketing requirements into developers Can prevent whatever and online shop or website. Or something like that. And i guess you could say that this is sort of an also too much in that the actual one was my co founder. Peter in twenty fifteen and told me auditorium and like this is a cryptocurrency is good made make fiat Obsolete ambience great vision and all on. I got interested. And i want a couple of coins and basically just seeing coats and do we got to find on rabbit hole as a say in the year and reading more learning more about it fascination grew and so this was eating out my my evenings and nights and everything in life was sort of like well you know can be. It can talk on something else and things like that eventually in two thousand eighteen. I did the jump and said okay gonna do full-time crypto. Always a great experience with making my hobby. My job right. So that's one of the dream come. True trump basically. If you can do what you love to do to pay it. So and that's what i did and taking the jump and basically what fascinates me about blockchain is again that is bridging a lot of different disciplines and means different things one. If people give the economic things could be speculation financial assets could be technology agrees society change be making the better place because the losing potential south is higher than the north. It's just i. I liked to compare to the internet and the ninety s is like what is the internet and back then. There was a difficult question. Maybe someone answer and you can have a website. Their emails of analogy no more against the giants of this world came out of it and having business models that nobody ever dreamed of potential marching. And that's basically making fascination thank you. That's an amazing journey. You have the skills to understand. High-profile technologies like blockchain. Because you have the background in set technologies but for those who didn't how would you explain and this is like the more general question that anyone can get. I guess what blockchain case and what it can do for you as a business so. The obvious answer is to answer the for blockages ledger technology. So alleger where facts are noted. Let's put it most journal way possible. And it is saved a lot of different places and all participants of this network agreed on this on the state of that information which means also that. It is always complete the orders. The same order which is in in bookkeeping accountants would be great and understanding blockchain's the always the sole disagreement network much like the internet servers. Talk to each other and then recording append only information so they can never be any deletion. What is occasions. So there has been consensus reached and this high-tech and there's different technologies. Actually there is not one much of many different blockchain's because it's a nascent technology and the standard as we know it it's on the internet is not there yet so racist open which one's gonna be the predominant standard and the two to come back to businesses. Is that like i said with the internet. The use cases are pretty much limitless. Or i think all the begin. Think about maori. Or i in the process of developing is just the tip of the iceberg. In sense of what. We're gonna be seeing next five years or so because Nyse music distribution basically also consuming music and this design marketing talks about that. You know high novel south yet

"All right. Let's get to the interview this week. I'm talking with danny shaw design educator located in new york city. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do all right. Thanks for having me. I'm danny shaw. I'm a design educator. Most of the time also product manager when need to be a project manager as well and at the co- at the end of the day. I'm still a designer multi multi-disciplined design of course across the digital space. Okay how has twenty twenty one been for you so far. Twenty twenty one i mean. What are we with thirteen days. Then will far personally has been fine. You know but just looking at the world around me. You would be hard pressed to say that right but personally has been fine so far. So i'm grateful for that How was last year. I know you know the pandemic really kind of turned everyone's world upside down to some sort away. How did you get the year. Last year was a lot. I think a lot of people was ally of me personally. A lot of personal relationships it greatly impacted things for instance my grandparents who visit my grandparents all the time multiple times throughout the eddie live atlanta. I have not been able to see them. And that's really been a tough pill to swallow on person aside and not being able to see other relatives so that's definitely been hard but then which is probably roundabout way on the professional side. It's it's been probably one of the most busiest of hat professionally. A lot of business in the landscape changes so fast rapidly where the digital acceleration accelerated even more than the pace that it was already at which impacted my inbox in my email. People me up for advice and counsel and job. So it's been a mixed bag is definitely been a mix. Let's focus on work for a minute here. You're the director of digital design and strategy for a company called brand share. What does brands share. Do all right. So shit is e commerce marketing company in for a lot of people who may not be familiar with that concept and idea. We work with a lot of. Cpg burns consumer packaged goods such as emmons but if a lot of the packaging goods that we see on a regular basis as consumers so we work with these companies in regards to the marketing strategy. Introducing them to the market gaining insights and data on these new products that's being introduced to the market and we partner with them on their strategy and execution and how the scale they are offering to the audience at large in a nutshell. It comes across multiple channels digital in person shipping. We do a lot of experts. You things as well so Touch on a lot of areas with these brands trying to get as far as being the partner between the brands and these new products. That's trying to the market. In services and reaching that specific audience that the china targeting reach for their respective products. How did you first get started there at the time. I was transitioning from a position that i was working. At in north carolina as product manager and at the time there was some organizational changes. And i was looking in north carolina and and doing that and just going back and forth between new york and chronic to get my fares in order and iran ran to the person who became my manager So we just ran into each other. We used to work in the past at time. inca essence. She just told me she was working there. She was she just started. She was trying to build a team. She was looking for some freelance designers and asked me if i would be open to discuss it and i i'm open to discussing. I was just transitioned from the last role and said hey you know this might be something of interest for me. While i'm transitioning to china figure out the next and then it just happened to work out. Well we worked well together. I've worked with the rest of the team. And i'm working on the designs and floor the digital initiatives and then it just kind of kept going from there into full-time role and then may stand with the company and so forth. What does the team. Makeup look like autumn. Agean you've got designers because you mentioned design but do you work with so i work with everybody. We work with everybody. So i have Outside of me to other designers on my team i work with the vp of marketing. A record the bp digital. We're we're not. We're about fifty. I'll not that big. So we're about fifty person staff based in new york and of pennsylvania so i pretty much everybody to chairman of the company as well That the president. It really depends on the project. What's what needs to be done. You get to intimate environment. So i kind of get to work with everybody account managers and so forth as well now given that the company sizes is so small like what's a typical daylight now because i would imagine you all are not able to get together in an in an office or you now while the pennsylvania offices so they are all the way the to set up a lot of the new york office we are. We're all remote right to be clear. And we were based in midtown manhattan midtown manhattan but The pa office depending on the circumstances on what might be needed. Maybe like a photo shoot or something like that. Some members still going to office but for the most part is still pretty much remote as well. So yeah but a typical day. Nowadays is really. Just you know looking at Obviously out calendar in the before just trying to coordinate on the bear. Risk projects and initiatives looking at tickets. You know gotta look at these tickets to see what's to was the status of status meetings just to kind of make sure that we're on track with a lot of things calls a foul benders looking at roadmap. There's a lot of. I would say a lot of time. Put was president planning a lot more so than in the past so so to speak. It really varies. I really wouldn't even know what to say. What did with low but my on a log. I'm pretty much aware of what my day is already gonna look like just because i leave when i log out. I just see what. I have lined up for the next day. So usually it's a mix between meetings. Some our collaborate with the design team once needed as well as account manager for any new requests checking on the status of ongoing projects as well touching base with the vp of digital. For any other items. That might be down the line sometimes. I am checking in with some of our dev engineers team on the status of things as managing few about digital initiatives and ecommerce sites. Yeah it really ranges mountain towns. I'm looking at analytics in number. Metrics is to see if you know some insights in in regards to the strategy. And make sure we're on pace. We're doing the right thing. There's room for improvement in always looking for some wounds improvements as well so it really varies. Throughout the day. Monday tuesday could be two completely different. Days does sound like a lot. Yes it's it's cool but yeah it can vary a lot. Have you had to adopt any sort of new like strategies or workflows over the past year. Yeah sure well. They tend to crack jokes on me. Because i am like the uae. Try to organize one. You know being a project manager and in the past and project management roles a really try to align and keep things as organiz as feasibly possible. So i think i've definitely had been allowed strong advocate for that. Not just for myself but across the team especially during kobe right so that one thing that be really just had to really make adjustments for the communication on big on communication. I think a lot of not just designed problems. I think a lot of problems in general could be resolved if we communicate elopement so readily had to be strategic in how we communicate and open up communications to help foster solutions especially now that we're not all in this together we can't just walk over to someone and so forth so the communication was definitely gonna be safe there and also iguanas when everything for his hidden in in the world changed right before. Is i do think aloud people kind of know what to do right. So we worked in mit working past normal times and things like that and i think for me was at a place where it had to be diligent about. Okay shut off. There's only so much you can do. And i think not just for me. A lot of people had to make that adjustment as well with the state of the world. Yeah i know a lot of think. It was last year right around the time that the that the pandemic happened. Or the the lockdown started to happen. I was talking with a lotta people for the show who they had either just started a new job in like now it's day for and their mentor. Work from home continually or they're having a tough time to transition from being in the office to now having to sort of work in this synchronous sort of fashion right. And i will say to me. Just because i've had roles in the past where i've worked remote merola north carolina. It was a big remote work environment. Culture prior i would go into the office but it was nothing to see a member who was working remote that day for various reasons. It was very flexible. People have kids people have health issues. We worked with teams across the country. Kind of remote teams across the country engineer so it was never never felt like everybody had to be all his so for me. I was comfortable already transitioned into a more remote environment but this has been the most. I don't know if this is the most remote. I just to show. Has there been like one thing that you've gotten that's really helped you make that adjustment pretty. Well bob meditated. On is i. I really got into a meditation a bit more. Just read different philosophies at least for me just trying to make sense of everything that was going on you know i. I don't have the head. Space is the head. Space app was very very helpful. Helped me sleep more consistently in and things like that. We all just trying to figure out what works for us right. I didn't feel i needed. I wasn't really looking for anything. I was going to make me a better employee anyway. On it I think i was more concerned with was going to help me maintain some schmidt to help during all this time. Yeah so like when it comes to working on a new project or with a new client. What does that creative process look like with you being the director strategy. I know you've got the team under you. What does that sort of process look like from start to finish well. It really varies. Because the relationship that we have with declines it changes in some cases we are more or less facilitators and creative may already common just working on a strategy how to execute it for them and what are the proper market in digital media channels so to speak and then other times. We are developing in design in house. And when that happens of course that's when the standard procedures. What's what's the goal was the objectives. What are we trying to achieve was the demographics that research behind it first before we start opening programs right trying to get an understanding of what the client needs. What goes let's the. Kpi was the measurement of success prior to all of that and then basically looking at our offerings the now tools and resources to see how we can best executed across the board. It may not always be digital 'execution it might be exponential execution might be Just some inserts in getting them the scanty oracle's taken you know micro sites and things like that might be a newsletter campaigns and stuff like that so it does vary but i think we start each project just trying to warn just get an understanding of what are the key goals and objectives and. How do we facilitate that. That making sure that we have the right information to go about executing properly across creative across strategy and course execution as well

School was a big accomplishment for eva. Who originally from peru and says she wanted to make her dad proud while she was trying to pinpoint her next step. Abe and two friends took a road trip to napa california while on a trip. Eva expressed her frustration and disappointment on her career uncertainty. To one of the friends. Jim gen able to write down three things. She was passionate about on a napkin. Eva wrote traveling children and languages at the time she already lived in eight countries spread across four continents and spoke five languages. Got her thinking maybe she could start a business with these skills somehow after getting home from the trip eva created a google. Talk and brainstorm services. She could offer then researched how to fine tune them for example. She learned that it's extremely beneficial to get credited in order to be an interpreter in medicine. It's not enough to speak the language. Well the certification. At least in this case matters after figuring out what certification she needed avis set up a linked in premium account so that her profile would have more visibility and of course she needed a name on the same napkins us to write down favorite topics. Eva had also jotted down words. That described her hyper polyglot. Nomad poly-lingual influence to name a few looking back at that napkin. Two words stood out hyper and flint. Ab decided to combine the two to create hyper fluent. So after she narrow down the services she would offer including personalized one on one language courses cooking sessions in different languages translating and interpreting and more while she was getting hyper fluent services. Squared away able was offered a fellowship by the ministry of education of indonesia to study bahasa indonesia for a year even in her new role thousands of miles in twelve time zones away. Eva continued to focus on setting up a side business. She made business cards and bought a new camera to take professional photos on location while in indonesia. She made her first website. Which at the time was more of a block pricing structure dependent on what the service was and for how long a person needed it free tutoring. The price was fixed but if someone needed a series of manuals translated the price dependent on the number of words the target language the timeframe and sector. It's likewise for interpretation. The price dependent on the sector the distance to travel for the assignment and the duration. She also decided to price services differently in different countries in reflection of market realities. The first clients for hyper fluent came after she plays her profile in different teaching platforms such as university tutor dot com but like so many. New businesses are most successful marketing. Technique has been word of mouth. One of asia's prince spoke about hyper flew to an acquaintance. Who happened to be the personal assistant for an nba player. That basketball star became a client was also through connections that she landed her most significant gigs with the bank. Bloomberg and for some of the wealthiest families in new york city. She's also active on instagram her favorite online platform about that website. It's no longer just to block. A couple years ago she upgraded one with all the features she wanted. And it's now much more personalized scents. Beginning hyper fluent in two thousand. Eleven avis had about six hundred and fifty clients. She currently prophets around fifty thousand dollars a year from macedo also and yes. This is still aside us oil. Her full job is project manager. The international centers for precision oncology. Even with the busy job she plans to keep offering language services after the pandemic subsides. Yes i can't wait either. It's going to happen. She'll also began offering a one to two week.

This program will aim to teach italian two moms and their or daughters through immersing themselves in country says that some of our favorite memories have been through her business since she's learned four more languages worked and cooked with refugees in berlin and visited more than sixty five countries. All right i have a suggestion. Here is in a similar place. That able was a few years ago. If you happen to speak four or five languages only four or five right my justice. Don't try to do everything at once. Don't try to offer translation and interpretation and tutoring and cooking classes. It's great that it's been able to work for abe. And obviously she's been doing this a number of years now and she's found the perfect rhythm between her day job on her side hustle. But i think for a lot of people. You're actually going to be more successful in this field. If you're just doing one of those things maybe even for a specific target market like for example One of asia's client bases is wealthy families in new york city. You could say okay. I'm gonna do language tutoring for kids from well off families in this particular area where it could be something totally different but just picking something. I think is going to help a lot. So you're not just overwhelmed and trying to do it all also. I really loved the google doc method. You know when he got back from her california road trip. She made a google doc and brainstorm services she could operate using her language skills and from there she made various observations. Like oh i should get a certification to be medical interpreter and probably some other observations as well so just kind of scratching things out and making notes of your skills and what services. Those talents might lend themselves to can be very helpful.

Either to hang out with you guys for a little bit. Yeah we'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. And your current role as the chief data officer for the state of north dakota. Sure sure well. Good morning everyone So my my background is You know went to college. Got a degree in computer science mathematics and then when often like everyone else When i lived in saint louis you. It was kind of a requirement. You had to work for mcdonnell. Douglas which is now boeing corporation. So did that for it. But but then after a while Got got involved in consulting and worked my way up through the Consulting ranked says developer and they as a project manager is the data architect the solution architect and then finally got into a position of driving business intelligence and analytics for a couple of large international consulting firms where ran their north america. Big data and the i practice And the great ride. A thoroughly enjoyed all of the things we did. I think we added a lot of value to Our customers which was private industry And had great teams Had a strong onshore team strong offshore kimes and delivered a lot of value. But i think two years ago Over two years ago. When i applied for this position as the chief data officer At first i really didn't want position Didn't like the idea of state government state government has has a bad connotation Of kind of a nine to five job And a people people who just weren't really motivated to To move the world change the world and my boss who i interviewed my off. Now the cio. Sean reilly Who i interviewed with his his final comment to me was well. I can't pay what you make today. But are you wanna paycheck or do want to change the world. And i had never thought about life that way. Never tried to change the world and So i decided to take on this opportunity This was the first chief data officer position for the state of north dakota so there were a lot of unknowns Certainly certainly my presence Was a bit chaotic for the organization. Because i came in with a completely different agenda and completely different way of looking at the world through the eyes of the pillars that are assigned a line to me which application development and automation. And the second pillar is data analytics data science artificial intelligence and had some very different opinions about those things. And how we might move those forward So as i became involved with this role i became an. I had made an assumption that every state had a chief data officer come to find out there are only twenty seven of us out of fifty states So it's it's an interesting It's an interesting mix of of individuals who are chief data officers and getting to know them is. It has been a really amazing opportunity because they have such a very backgrounds and they bring such such different perspectives to cheap date officer role I like to joke and tell people that the last thing i focus on data which is obviously not true but but my real focus is really around cultural change within the city physician and what that means in the context of not not necessarily data. Because i have to executives are on my team who Are just are just brilliant at running the operations and managing the two pillars within my organization.

And i'm always trying to push this kind of entrepreneurial mindset two daughters. They haven't embraced it. Fully some have a little bit but I'm always. It's always fun to talk to two women who've kinda brandao starting to own and you said something really cool in the prerecording when we were talking a little bit about why you branched out and like you kinda tired of working in the toxic culture of the real world and you stepped on your own. So congratulations for that. Tell me a little bit about that. When was that. How long ago was that. So when we moved to california in two thousand fifteen media started working for global project management company and i it was just was working insane hours for three and a half years and things were being done that you know. Were very complicated things that were being done that were a bit shady. And and i. I wasn't on board and i thought you know all this stress stemming from these things that it doesn't have to be this way while it can just be simpler. You know you just you just pay people on time if you just A treat people fairly you know and and manage your expectations and have trust back and forth. It doesn't have to be so hard you know my industry construction. I thought could be very very simple. And so that's what i did when i went out on my own in two thousand eighteen and started gerardo design build throughout design and It has been easy it has been you know a really straightforward and i have a great group of subcontractors. Have a great group that works for me works with me vendors. Suppliers clients amazing clients. And it's been it's been great And i did realize that there is an easy way to do it. And it's a it's just be fair and be a good person and the work will come and everybody will be happy. I love that. I mean it. You know. I love how you said that it was easy. I'm glad that the leap seemed easy for you. I mean i mean a lot of people when they have they feel that frustration of working in a toxic environment where they feel a calling may be or that. I know i could do this better than i've had numerous entrepreneurs that i've talked to said that i i knew i can do this better. I love that that's a catalyst to get somebody to take the leap but gosh dang for everyone. That takes a leap. There's probably four or five that get stuck and they don't take it. Was it easy for you to leap off that clip not knowing the parachutes gonna open. Yeah i mean for me. It was like well. I'm tied to the salary that i'm getting right. Like twice a month and a steady paycheck. But i'm also working like eighty to ninety hours a week sold airlie sleeping up at three. Am every morning flying back and forth from northern california to southern california on sunday nights like sleeping at the office. I mean it was just stupid and you're all for for my life to be difficult bill because you know you think you work that much in like you've got control of everything but things are being done at the company outside of my realm and making my job harder. It's like working hard and everything's harder. Why does it have to be like this. And so for me. The catalyst was you know if i jump in if jump ship so to speak and start the semi on the worst thing that can possibly happen is you know. I can't hack it. And i go get a job somewhere. I could be a great senior project manager site superintendent project executive. I work for startup space. Those were my options. Were like well. If i if i fail at this i just go get a job. Like that was my. That was mike. Mike and i'll be still in the same position i am now. Just maybe at a way better firm with more happening. So

"The right skills obviously is one of the core values that you have there. And the company is a foundational member of a new vet tech employer consortium. That's going to be helping. Provide training for high tech skills for careers in technology for veterans. Tell me about that program. How did it come about in. Who can access it. Well all answer it by by stepping back just a little bit and talking about things from a workforce development and labour market could perspective and even before that when walmart entered into lower the last five years we entered into this period where we really needed to integrate bland. The worlds of in store experience and an online experience for customers and through those efforts in kobe really highlighted the need and importance of us to be able to provide this omni channel or omni experienced for people. That's just a seamless. Shopping experience between the online and the in person domains. And what that has entailed is that we have any number of roles as part of this this leap into digital in leaning into digital where we have product developers and project managers and user experience individuals data scientists obviously the software developers and engineers in the cybersecurity information security individuals and it creates created. This huge demand going back to that workforce prominent so we needed to figure out how we considered our demand. What was the supply opportunities that were out there in. How do we build an opportunity to connect the two and this tech program that was established by the veterans administration or funded by the veterans administration and in partners with the us chamber of commerce accenture and others. We recognize the importance of it right away and so what it does is it helps take military service members. It gives them certain skills like cloud architecture or any number of other areas and with through those skills makes them exactly what we're looking for and we can bring people in who have those foundational skills and then continued to develop them into the people that were looking to grow over time. So we're super excited about that program itself that just one example within the employment heller that we're very interested in it. Aligned with our workforce demand and lets us tap into the veteran talent pipeline in a way that is that skill bridging activity in puts all that together in a really interesting and fun public private partnership example a model that we hope to see happen. Not just in the technologies but other areas over time how veteran access program through the va. It's just a simple google to the vet tech program. B. e. t. t. e. c.

"This off world that we live in has helped us humanize each other outside of work because everybody's dealing with some crazy stuff and we knew that before but it was easier we would commute do our work go home or wage aren't zooming all the time. We weren't isolated enough, but you know what, we're all dealing with very similar stuff. There's some, you know folks dealing with a lot more than others. But you know share something about yourself as a project manager and also it's hospitable when you're using that discipline to be mindful of others time and work to consolidate meetings wage unnecessary or cancel them, right? If you ever done that meeting or someone says, hey, can we set up another meeting and you have a weekly one setup already just be like now we have this week in the meantime. Let's just repurpose it and then go from the air or off and use that discipline making more efficient be hospital and get folks out of there. Our seventh value is industriousness. So industriousness hard work right as a means to achieve a goal. So obviously major teams. There's no getting around that to be really helpful for the team and the folks. You're going to help you got to push hard work. You gotta put, you know put in time in each level as I mentioned, right? You're going to be a staff member then a unit leader than a Section Chief and so you've got to work hard you gotta grind and again I get your task book signed off that makes you credentialed as an incident management team member at whatever level you have to put in the work through not just exercise is not just talking to somebody but they have to see you in the field doing the work which is fantastic. I think that's an outstanding aspect of the incident management team credentialing process. And I also if you are the section chief already that does have the experience you have to be industrial to the point where you can imagine how your section is going to work in the middle of nowhere out of a tent with or without power, right?.

"They're good to go if it doesn't happen and they don't know how to get a hold of somebody or they can't get them on their cell or the channels are blocked or whatever. That's not a good day to discipline to me on the project management side, and it could still be on a plane sheepdog. But for project managers is are you is a project manager able to keep meetings on track or redirect them if the discussion heads down a rabbit hole, right? So that happens we could have an agenda all day long somewhat. Hey I just want to talk about this one thing and then boom you're off in the other direction to me a good test of this is can you with a thirty-minute meeting accomplish what has typically taken sixty minutes, right? Yep. That's an efficiency thing. I remember words on a staff ride and Gettysburg with some of my teammates and what kind of the the dream team playing other folks who experienced we gelled together and it was like Hey, man, we all had to go through this exercise of our operational. Briefing, right? And so it's how you get 12 minutes or less. What's the challenge and loser buys the beers? I think some of us did it. I think I may have missed it by a few seconds. So I bought around Thursday, but that's a great. That's a great test. Right? How can you deliver the information succinctly allow some conversation around it and then get everybody out of the meeting because again if it's a weekly sync back 30 minutes is plenty cuz you should just be checking in for anything that's just happened. It shouldn't be the time you're working out all the problems that should happen at Hawk and in between and just direct so think about that. Can I do in 30 minutes what typically takes t Also when it comes to Charters, they're pretty high level there early, right?.

"As we as we worked as in the second one a truth and as they say in this resource learn religion.com or learning. Yeah, learn religions., sorry spiritual an actual truth. And so it's in management teams. It behooves us to know. What is the ground truth out. There. Are we stopping the flow of water from the flood or are we not and there's no getting around it. Right? Don't sugarcoat how well we're not doing did we miss something in the planning meeting? Just something come up later we go. Oh man, I forgot about this. Okay, let's Circle back or do we brush it under the rug which we should never do. We should really be having those unfiltered right non political truths that help us. Keep going forward and make good decisions. Keep our people in the field safe. That's that's a truth that we have to you know, make safer and more efficient Asians as a project manager Sim related to you know, something in the planning, maybe did we miss a step in the planning process? Did we identify how we're going to hand this project off for support early enough. Did we wait so long? Why is our project in the yellow or in the red as they say be honest about it? Right not they them no one told me I asked for this right? What could you have done as a project manager? What can your team? Why are you here be honest with it? Ask for the help you need and make sure there's a clear path of how you get back to that green that good to go status because that's the only way that's going to help us through your truth as a project manager approve a project team to get forward the third aspect. The third value here Viking value is honor, right Deeds words and reputation outlive our bodies. They say in the Viking World from some of its instant manager. Why is this is similar to kind of that truth, you know be honorable to know that when we mess up we own it. We accept it and we make it right right the example..

"People. So a super high priority as I've said here on the podcast before accountability is number one to make sure we know where people are that. They're safe. I had fantastic. People on the team which is we know as why teams work, right, even though there's a you know, Jocko and life in extreme ownership. No bad teams only bad leaders, and that's true. And this is what this is exam listened earlier podcasts where I talk about I did mess up and I didn't give enough supervision to help optimize the way we were doing some throughput so great lesson for me, right? So my summer here from this was I worked as the resource unit leader within a multidisciplinary organizational structure that consisted of local regional state and federal Partners, right? So think about that from a standpoint of what in the industry I was in public safety then I was telling you ask Captain but working in its management, but that to me is a project manager says Hey, I was whatever this position is, which I don't you know, I say, don't know as a project manager without the background I have but I know worked in a multidisciplinary organizational structure that was made up of local regional state and federal Partners, right? So I know that was X Levels of people multiple organizations and logos if you will write working together and I was within it right so I wasn't it the lead. I provided planning through creation of a new process to change First Responders. So I help kind of optimize how we do that. We gave them GPS and we track them and it was all that so I say, hey, I help make this new process and put it together. I executed through assignment a specific unit designations with functional managers provided accountability for over seven thousand people over nine days, and I closed it by the mobilizing all the responders safely. Right? So again, we're walking the reader the through our experience that isn't day-to-day it health care business banking project management experience, but just in that statement from your Public Safety, you're all hazards or public health experience.

"For a standard PMI project. Are you initiate it your place you executed it your monitor or control it, which I didn't really put in there and then you close it. So if you can think about experiences you've done let's say you were tasked with which this is stuff. I've heard of let's say you work for a fire department and your task with redesigning or planning for new furniture new space Makerspace more efficient, right? You're going to initiate it based on being chosen to do it and starting the project even going out for bids and look real plans. You're going to do planning maybe with your planning department with Furniture suppliers. You're going to execute the changes right by working with whoever's going to get all the old stuff out by working with the people you work with the box there things job. Up to get him ready to move and then you're going to close it when everybody's in their new space, they're settled in and then you're going to have Operational Support ongoing by people that you know are going to call for help with their phone no computers or something like that. So think about just the basics of what you do everyday in your job, whether it's you're in another business, you know, Private Industry or whether in the public sector or like Public Safety or public health, you were doing project management and this one Emergency Operations plan revision. It's very similar to that. Just think about and I would if you haven't and you're interested in project management go to the PMI. Org website and look at 5 p.m. P process or the other process is just to get a sense of what what it looks like and how you document your experience cuz they have great guidance on the fact that you don't have to be the lead project manager. You could be a coordinator or manager of a certain part of it or something like that. So don't think that you have to have been in charge of all these projects all the time to be able to get your PMP or to even be a good project manager. So again, I've said Many times here I've posted on Reddit on LinkedIn your credential does it make you a good project manager? It just so happens. The PMI framework is verbage that's used a lot as well. Right and it's a good credential to get once your experience and it says hey I went to this process, you know, credentialed internationally-recognized so it's good to have but again, it doesn't equate to being a project manager. But if you've done good work that's similar to project management. Then you probably will be right so something to think about them. So the shift bid process this thing where I talked about by seniority, which is pretty heavy and by experience and performance, right EMS providers could once a year try and get a different shift to better shift keep their old shift if they want event for however long they were going to be there. So basically what we did is we pulled every month numbers we put him on the super Advanced spreadsheet and I'm pretty good Excel but one of my colleagues who was also one of the officers there as he actually I think is analytics degree fantastic job, right and so wage. Did is put this whole spreadsheet together with formulas? We plugged the numbers. It showed us who kind of shook out where plus seniority points and then that's the order we went with it's a pretty cool system and I think pretty fair, right and sometimes that's people think it's not fair, especially when you've changed perhaps from a pure seniority to a seniority plus performance and people don't just get what they've gotten off. That's one of the mantles of leadership to write when you even the playing field based on maybe how something's been done for a while not everybody's going to like it right now. Everybody likes change so off the just as you pulled out of you do this, you've done emails with these folks you've talked to people you you I mean imagine if you're in public safety or even you're doing shift work you get the chance to choose what your own network that's pretty legit. Right, especially in public safety. So often times you don't get that choice, especially if you're newer, so here's how I summarized that so I coordinated multi-level work group performed. Analysis, right? You're looking at a bunch of data created EMS system level schedules for over 200 providers receive stakeholder review and approval. Right? So you pull all this data you put schedules together, cuz the big thing another huge part of this particularly in EMS is work-life balance people will work a lot if they're not making a lot to get more money, right? Cuz they love it for all different reasons. But you as a leader also have to not let them get burnt out. So there's a safety component in a life thing. And so you gather all this you put it together you say hey, here's a shift that I think will work. It'll cover the demand and then you have to get sign off from leadership. Right? And these are folks that have been in the industry that know what's going on. Hey, these chefs don't quite cover it if there's a peek it might we might be understaffed and part of this is is a little magic and a little science right when you're doing EMS shift. But if your project managing you are looking at that data quite a bit just like you do in in other projects. You participate in a murder board we call it. So essentially you go sell what you think's going to work and people try and punch holes in it. So be ready to sell it just like if you're if you put together a project management plan or a scope a document that has your schedule in your budget and who's who on the team and what are the key performance indicators that all has to get approved by the sponsor another project leadership so long this shows if you've done similar work by doing shifts in public safety or Incident Management for big incidents that you have then put those together analyze things then you've gotten them approval. So you've used to presenting things to leadership right looking at a benefit-cost.

"In this episode, we're going to talk about how whether you're an incident commander planning section chief operations section chief or on the project side, your sponsor, a project manager. How can we look at our processes as we like to do here, simplify them tease out what we need and just talk through this concept. This post concept from the National Incident Management System, which is the guide, right? It's not a prescribed thing, but it's the guide that contains the incident command system and other information that when I was an incident management team or doing public health emergency coordination or or response for the state. And then even healthcare and some of the concepts of is project managers that we've talked about here. It is the kind of guy, the national incident management system than that encompasses all those kind of things. It's Kinda like the project management body of knowledge. But for Incident Command System Public Safety Public Health, folks that do that kind of response. So. I'm going to go through each of the letters in the acronym posts we'll talk about first the priority and we'll talk about I the incident management public safety aspect with some guidance from Larry and some of my two cents, and then the project management aspect because this document from Larry, which is outstanding, right it's a way to have some objectives ready to go. Because that's quite a challenge for people right whether you're an experience that commander or a new one is said these objectives that set the tone for the whole team for the whole operation or for a project? Right. If I'm a PM or sponsor, you know according to the book, the sponsor supposed to make the objectives but. And those kind of thing. So how do we do that? So leary's guidance. Guidance. He just reiterates in this document but if you've been in public safety ever and you've been exposed to that the incident command system, it's life safety. Incident Stabilization and property conservation. Right. So the first thing we need to do for priorities is save lives whether it stop a bad guy that shooting people stop the bleeding from a person whatever it is we're focused on life safety, get put the fire out those kind of things. Incident stabilization stopped the fire spread, stop the the bleeding against kind of a ws there but basically make the make the incident or their response or even the. Event if you're using this for that, not get worse and then property conservation and environment. Right is a big thing is we don't WanNa bus up someone's whole house and overhaul, which is where we make sure that the fire hasn't spread after a fire. If we only have it contained in the kitchen and it's not in the living room, we're not going to bust out walls at random places. So those kinds of things and for a Project, similarly, there's there's kind of these big three and then the extra extra fourth one. So there is scope right? What is within the boundaries of what we're doing for this project so priority, wise for project. What's the scope What's the schedule right? We got to have some kind of schedule whether you're doing a waterfall this then that whether you're agile kind of doing sprints a week or two time, how are you going to do? That and then the cost right money because nobody has endless amounts of it most nobody there's some folks that seemed like they do these days and then an additional one is quality, right? So we can have no scope creep we can be on schedule we can be under budget or quality can be super poor. So the priority of the project should include quality, and so we'll get into kind of some of those how that works but. You know pretty good correlation different focus, right between public safety incident management focus on that life safety on that response stabilizing things not letting them get worse on conserving property but you're doing similar work like that in a project. So you may not be directly you know putting pressure on a wound. Literal blood coming from somebody but you could be putting a virtual dressing. That is stopping loss of productivity through improving process as a project. Right. So there's some some correlation there. So let's look at the objectives we've we've talked about objectives. If you're in project management, you've been an incident management objectives are a critical part of it. I'm a huge fan of them on the foundation of four, the first step, and that is to develop smart objectives. Same exact thing for the public safety model so that Oh, and post is objective. Of course, they should be smart and we get some great guidance from Larry here too because he says. From his experience in what he's seen with some exceptions is states there's about six categories that all hazards, incidents, problems, issues, limitations with a few exceptions could fall into, and so those are and these will lead into development or help us develop objectives. These are responders, right taking care of our people. So that is always the number one priority is our responders. The next priority number two is the public. So we're keeping our people safe. We're looking out for the public that's who were here for to respond in the incident command us some public safety, and then there is cop stuff right civil or get the bad guys. Those kind of things number four then there's fire stuff to removing hazards. Has Cereal hazardous environments, those kind of things keeping a safe from that number five public works stuff. So infrastructure utilities, those kind of public works, public utilities, and then there are number six, the agency administrator stakeholder political issues. So there's overarching things we're going to have fiscal responsibility throughout the operational period, those kind of things. So from Larry Miller. Responders the public cop stuff, fire stuff, public works, public utility stuff, and those leadership..

"project manager" Discussed on Between the Slides

"Get on with another great episode of the People Process Progress podcast in three two. One. This is episode forty, five, take the purple pill and this is from or based off article I wrote a bit ago actually last year almost a year ago called take the purpose Lincoln if you haven't had a chance to connect with me, there do so but what it relates to and have had discussions recently both with mercy managers with budding project managers professionals and have mentioned it here on the on the podcast before about the difference between the project manager professional exam and being a project manager in real life, right? They're not one in the same. So for me, this came about because I'm part of professional project managers group on facebook and about a year ago, someone had posted that they pass their PMT exam. So great for them right? It shows I putting time toward professional credential. I studied I learned the formulas. I sat in the super stressful testing room with all eyes on you and and now a year later, they're doing online PMP exams, which is interesting. So someone's watching you on a camera. It's a whole thing. So it means a lot right. So getting that credentials huge. But I thought you know to me, that's not the same as the road right to the contrast of the project management body of knowledge concepts. And, their application, the world world or different, and by that mean. So the you know I'm a PMP in for me. My first thought was of the Matrix between these two differences in realities or reality and this. Conceptual and some of those concepts for sure used in the world but the conceptual project management body of knowledge or pinball or PM standards in the world. So the scene where you know in the Matrix where morpheus is giving the Oh the choice you can choose this blue pill and you'll return to life normal life with pre standards that kind of stuff kind of like the. Project Management Body of knowledge and the exam, or you can take this red pill and will open your eyes to what's happening in the real world which I think if you're new to project management in Your Avenue Your Gateway is the PMP exam. That's kind of what you're going to get. You're going to, you know take this real world project management job pill and be like wait a minute we're not using all these. T and we're not doing all these formulas all the time and the sponsor didn't come to me with the charter. What the heck that stuff that you're gonNA run into, which is fine. That's part of adjusting and being thing so. He again that Blue Pill is the project management body of knowledge. The PEP exam questions very structured little wiggle room. You GotTa really get those right get the scenario. Perfect to get the answers right with you understand the right statements and expectations whereas the red pill is find it organizations. You know what do or don't apply how they do or don't work so I think you can't have too much of either. Right the blue pills is going to leave you to unwavering and too structured. Kinda like when covert started hitting and maybe people tried to hold onto standards too much and say, no, we have to do this when you're in a time that's so fluid and so dynamic or the red pills with no structures too dangerous and counter-productive view just winging it. So combine the red and the blue pills make your own purple pill that's a blend of the concepts, the tools and techniques from the project. Management Body of knowledge, but also practical dynamic project management that fits your given environment. So very short episode here I just want folks to consider how do I blend these two things do a more expansive episode in the future. This is just a quick thought nearing the end of the week here that when you break into project management or if if you're in emergency management, which is some of the discussions we've had lately. On link dead and other places use the knowledge you get from the books to help build your practical application and then use what works in your environment plus not everybody in your environment is going to be really into project management. Right so that's another one of your jobs whether you're emergency manager. An incident manager or project manager is to help integrate people into the process into what project management is, and if you're trying to build that up from scratch, you can't hammer them with while the book says this. And we have to do this. You gotta be able to balance it just like when I was a planning section chief. If I tried to walk people through everything single step every single form, every single action of the planning process and the all hazards planning process on a dynamic incident on the scene you're gonNA fail people are GonNa look at you like you're crazy not going to be helpful. So take that purple blend the book stuff blend the Roh world stuff. Do your best stay safe wash those hands. Godspeed..

"You want to incorporate their ideas particular project manager. That's not a good thing at all so I don't subscribe to that piece, but again part of these definitions are kind of a pure. You tested this. Here's what that equals. oftentimes you've had that and certainly either tons in my life where I was too bullheaded. And I've learned from it. Now particularly the project manager, the certainly not the subject matter expert in everything, or or you know a lot of things you just can't think you're the only one that can make the decisions, and sometimes that involves. Can you know uncomfortable decisions with other folks? But that's again part of being a project manager. Right another part of the statements. Are. Part of the self assured statement or or definition and outline is that quote, but you alone have the authority to to form conclusions, make decisions and act. For project managers. Obviously you know to me the first thing I thought of was that quote from. A statement from the movie top gun negative ghostwriter. The pattern is full when you want to buzz the tower. I could just wrong right so. It was a selfish PM. It does come with decision making authority sometimes, but I think we are not the one that can or should actor decide alone right? We get information and guidance from all our subject matter, experts, technical experts, leadership, and so all that's formulated for us to put together and queue up in big decisions now. Does that mean if you're at a critical go? No, Go, you know you have authorization from leadership. You know you have the right information. And maybe your team has pause and. And waiting for that assurance, and you say what I'll take the heat. Let's go absolutely, but when the statements when there's like always, are you alone? I? Think some of the self assured is is just too over the top, and so that's one thing I would caution with, and that's part of the assessment to is. Hey, you may have this trait, but be aware of this kind of thing, and so for me. Definitely don't as a PM make decisions on your own as as standard right. So, that's Kinda the precursor that is in the section about self-assurance in the book, and then I mentioned these ten actions for you know they recommend so if you're if you're assessed, it's over short in every every one of the strengths does this, but if you're assessed, what this hero, ten actions that you should take, and so what I'm GonNa. Do is talk about the official. Official, Clifton Action and then we'll give you my two cents on what I think or my interpretation on how project managers could interpret that and maybe put that into action, so the first first Clifton Strength Action for self-assured folks is here's the official thing quote. Look for startup situations for which no rule book exists. You will be your best when you're asked to make decisions end quote. Very good right, be ready for that for me. As a PM I think this could be look for and find comfort in situations where you can guide yourself and your project team through uncharted waters right so as a project manager. You don't be afraid of the project. You haven't done before certainly with Kobe Nineteen Gosh. We've all pivoted like crazy right. Hey, we're GONNA. Have you held this department? You'RE GONNA. have to think fast. You're going to have to change. That just develops better and I think you. Startup situations, no world book making the decisions. If you're self-assured, you're comfortable there. If you're newer in the profession that this will come experience, but even if you're brand new, just either got your PMP. Which again is the Syrup? But you getting officially kind of into the business? Be Confident in yourself, right? You're there to do good admit you don't know everything, but be comfortable in these situations whether it's no rulebook. Strength, number, two or action to just for self-assured folks, and I suggest is a little bit. PM's is to seek roles in which you convince people to see your point of view, so this is again where it gets into your so self assured you want to drive people a certain direction for me as a project manager for the second action, I would really think that for my statement. It's to seek leadership roles where your confidence can help. Help your team and other succeed right so you're still looking for roles, but not to convince other people to say hey, you need to switch to my point of view. You're saying hey. I am happy to lead that team I'm happy to lead this organization, or whatever, but I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA. Lift you all up. I'm going to help the team right because that's that's what we do. We facilitate processing. We support the team. IS PROJECT MANAGERS? self-assurance Clifton Action Clinton's strength action three. Let yourself confident show. It can be contagious and will help the people around you grow. Honestly for this one from from my action, three for project managers interpreted same as the second one right why? Why make a different I think if you're seeking leadership roles if your confidence is high if you're helping others succeed. then. You're letting yourself confident. Show in some of this has shown an example that I've done or seen other folks. Is You have what's called? Command presence, you know head up shoulders back WANNA Jordan. Tenants for life and It's just a good thing to do. It displays I'm confident without being arrogant or cocky, and it builds other people right if you're if you're looking down if you're there on your phone all the time, or you're just really not engage the tempo of the team, even over video web cameras now through zoom or Skype, or whatever people can tell, so sit up straight, be engaged. Be Confident. Jump in, and you know lead. There seems like all of you out. There are already. So let's go through Clifton Strength Action and before quote, realize that sometimes you will find it hard to put your certainty in or intuition into words, possibly leading others to see you self righteous. While that's directly kind of that line between so self assured and self righteous, and and for me, though as a project manager, this action I would say maintain your confidence as a project manager, but remember the mantra, no Egos, no silos, and let your subject matter, Experts Guide the Hal of the project, right. I said No. He goes no silos on the old between slides podcast, certainly on this podcast and in life when I, taught incident, command and And and on project teams in true right so you know, make sure that you're always always out there. Showing your confidence, but you're always recognizing no egos starts with you know. Egos starts with your team, and certainly no silos and communication. That's it. That's a huge thing, so you want to avoid being seen as they say as self righteous just because you want to get your point across. That's not really going to help anybody. There I don't think. Clifton strive action number five for self assurance. Is? Your independence streak can leave you standing alone, right? There's another there's another danger. You're so self assured, and you want to do it on your own that you may leave your team behind or. Alienate yourself and that's so good, and so for me. That's the bill your project team into a coalition and again remembering back to number four no egos, no silos is a huge deal and very helpful. Clifton strength number six out of ten again. This is from the shelf assurance section in the strengths finder two point Oh. This is this is on page. One fifty seven were self-assurance is if you happen, already have the book or going to get the book. so again advised getting that also requesting you maybe subscribe to this checkout, people process, progress, dot, com, and just updated the websites.

Process progress that Jamal Dot Com. Let's go to action number six from the book. It says partner with someone was stronger, strategic, deliberative or futuristic talents right so this is where. Clinton Strang. Say Hey of you've been assessed with self-assurance. That's awesome. You need to kind of balance that or supplement or partner what these other folks that have strategic view that.

"Say hey, we're GONNA meet weekly. All the updates will be posted in our online system will send out once a month, or if the project dips into you know. Red, light, status or something like that but that's part of the thing, too, and so you need to make sure what has access because as you all know. If someone goes to look at that particularly leader or somebody else, and they can't get in there, it's. Kind of a pain in the button. You may have lost money and they'll say hey. We'll just email that right and so yeah know that's organizational. Preference, my personal preferences. We haven't aligned. If it's more real time near real time can be. That's the best place for people to go. Let's just make sure they can get there. They know where it is, and as everybody know the projects y right, so if you're setting the tempo, we've we've taken ownership are planning. We're being flexible. Were to Lupin. and working together really well. Because we all know perfect. The enemy of good re also needs to know why in the objectives will cover some of that, but some of those objectives are also going to directly impact tasks in the work breakdown and all that stuff, but you know what's the difference we're trying to make. We're trying to improve patient outcomes for older patients that have this or were trying to make this system more efficient because it's going to help, you know people live longer whatever it. It is but the actual wind again I've mentioned before checkout, Simon, cynic, he defines his way better than I have, but it's not just the the watery providing. And how are we going to do it? It's it's really what's what's the thing we want to have everybody looking towards that's GonNa make a difference in their lives and so that's part of to me. The temp right? Everyone knows we're going toward that. It's the A and add car the awareness piece right so. Again kind of summarize Wu, so we're developing operational. Tampa were starting to work together this last one, so covey says sharpen the saw again I. totally agree with that I. Say and call this seventh pattern design yourself right because you are doing all this stuff for the team. You're doing all the stuff your organization. You gotta look at Yourself. Here's. Here's a definition of that. My wife had the same question she was like. What does that Italy Design Yourself? So you can think of iterative design process is a continuous cycle of prototyping testing and making adjustments and refinements, and this is from engineers that I l I'll save this link as well. Magoo was super strong but I like that right so you. You are a prototype. Your your whether your brand new as a project manager whether you've been in the game for fifteen twenty years. Years Program and whatever you are, you're a prototype. That's always changing your testing. Does this technique work did I talk to this person well, I'm GonNa just because I didn't do this on the other project, but I'm going to keep doing this because of the other project right so it similar, sharpen the saw, but it involves personal care for sure, but also professional adjustments right improvements as they say and do the old. You know jujitsu quote here. Learn from losing right, and that's a quote from there. You're not losing your learning, so that's something to write again. Projects aren't going to be perfect. That's fine for me like I'm a pretty confident person. I also relies. At forty six years old with over twenty five years or professional work, eighteen years of marriage thirteen years of fatherhood. I've lot learn. Right cannot be complacent. I can't think well. I know it all. Nobody needs to tell me what to do. It's just not true. It's not true for any person on the planet. Right as a project manager I submit that we have to feel the same. I I would say consider these things. My honest with my lessons learned from each project, right? It goes back to number one. Are you really taken ownership? have I tried my best to kill the air quote day from mccarey, when it's time to be objective and honest about areas for improvement and project that we help facilitate right. We were assigned the project. Are, deal was we were handed this great opportunity this great responsibility to get all these people together from different groups to solve this problem to address these issues to work under these objectives to put this non perfect, but really good playing together. Honest with ourselves when it goes great more so are we honest with ourselves? When it doesn't so you know. Do you look towards your future? You're looking at what space your end do you want to stay in that space? I'm an IT healthcare. Do I want to stay here? Do you know what to go back to public safety? Who knows you're always looking at doesn't mean you're not committed right, but what sector space as we say, sound more like grown-ups space Do. I want work in my skillset. Take into any space or my to specialize in my not specialize enough. Again. This is just thinking about yourself as a professional. What about certifications I've touched on this I. Have My Project Manager Professional I had public safety management certifications themselves emergency medical technician the MTA different. Generally. You know have to do that the practice you don't have to have a PNB be a project manager, but they are great for speak to the PM and other project management certifications. They're great for establishing a place when your resume pop-up in job searches to stand out on Lincoln and they. They do they do show that value, right? You went towards something that was challenging. If it's one of the harder ones, PNB's is one of the harder ones for sure, and there's other ones out there that you said I'm going to try and do this thing, and then I did it right, and then if you don't do it, try again and do it right, but it shows that you set a goal when you completed it. Remember though. This is what I said a lot and and I firmly believe it a certification whether it's scrum master Agile PM. Whatever does not make you a project manager..

"Purchase, ongoing support and more. Is it truly a win win? Does everyone really get everything? Was it just the excellent art of compromise? Like I think it's the latter compromises Ki- like compromise happens. It's the key to successful marriage to successful. You Know Parenthood you know you have to give and take. You have to be willing to stand up. Sometimes you have to be willing to give some times and as a project manager same thing so that thing about contract negotiations that's a back and forth, and can you get to a point where everybody air quote Kinda winds sure, but somebody gives a little more than they actually want to. At some point, and that's my point, so. I certainly didn't come up with perfect is the enemy of good but I love ct particularly believe in perfect the enemy of good or remembering that when their time is of the essence. When you're working from a contingency plan, we have less money fewer people. You're proved the scope. especially cove in nineteen I. Actually had someone else say that with on the team that I was on the program I was working in and I was so glad they said Could you start iterating and trying to keep doing this and doing this and doing? Doing this and you're like okay. At some point we keep having meetings and we keep doing stuff and at some point you got to pull the trigger. Hey, is it? Is it good enough to meet the solution now? And then we can put together a proper kind of more thought out more plan ahead, but dynamic plan down the road great. Let's do it so sometimes. Though you know we. We can't get lost in the process and think okay we. We have to do US administrative software. We have to do this or will this help the project? And, who's GonNa read that so I think consider that, too. So what is ineffective You know amount of communication of documentation of information to share to set up up front to share with stakeholders to get approved by your business owners by your sponsor you know we need the support from our leaders, and we have to lead team. Sometimes we have to go off script right, but it still along with those northstar objectives so while this may not be perfect. Perfect right now. If it's an adjustment because we had to hit, those contingency plans up. That's part of being a project managers having that discrepancy to be able to do it. If you don't organization you know, try and work that in his best. You can you know much of that is gonNA come from experience. It's also very important to keep leadership in the loop so again if you're if you're in a contingency scenario, your direct leader and on. Shouldn't be surprised when you say that. In a weekly meeting or a monthly meeting to steering committee, they should already know about it, and if you have some sort of eighty percent solution, you got it that you've you gotta get it approved by the state quarters right make sure you know it is, or do you best to communicate it in a timely manner, so there's no surprises. That's not fair to you to your teammates that you're representing on calls, certainly not to that leader so. We have taken that ownership. We have planned ahead, but we're staying flexible. We have identified issues and set those smart objectives. We are understanding that we cannot let perfect be the enemy of good because we are going to adapt seven patterns of highly efficient project managers I think we should always consider the WHO'd loop, so the Youtube and this parallel for cubby is seek first to understand then to be understood, it makes total sense and one hundred percent. hits on the print. Print principal application when communicating with your stakeholders, teammates and vendors I just liked the youtube tool. Because it's easy to remember right seek first to understand, and then be understood to me. Is Very communication focus which you know. He talks about in his book, and it makes sense right. If you're a good conversationalist, WanNa show someone you care. You'RE GONNA. Listen more than you're gonNA talk. You're going to be listening not just to respond to actually. Ask The question about what the person said I kind of touched on this, too when he did the. Episode Twenty Six of the show about crisis intervention team training, listening to someone lighting them talk without just saying you understand, or the should that is hugely important to escalate is also hugely important as a project manager. You're you're gonNa de-escalate stuff right as a project manager, but in this instance the you'd loop, and why think it applies in his a great pattern, the fifth pattern here to be more efficient as a project manager is one. It was developed by fighter pilot in the Korean War and you WANNA. WanNa talk about not having time to think when you have to have this system and you just do it so you don't know what the loop is. It's very popular and public safety in the military. It's been in some leadership. Things many actually 'cause it works y proposed so Yuda or ODA a stands for observe Orient. Decide, and act right. I mentioned it's it's methodology that successful Korean fighter pilot American, a fighter pilot in the Korean War came up with was way when he was. Fighting against other people flying jets trying to kill him How do I look and see what's see what's happening by observing Orient Myself? How do we decide what to do in an act? Right because you don't have time well. So how does a project manager do that? So when we we first join a project we may not have been involved early like in the initial requests for proposal or P or are fire. Fire for information, process or the intake process if you have one when we're not when we come in, then it pays to observe through hand off conversations with your leader with whoever assigned to the project or shortly thereafter your sponsor, your business owners, whoever is going to be key?.

"Make Progress, right? That's the that's a big thing on the show, so the first thing is take ownership. Yes, just like Jacko Lincoln Life Bob and always say in their book extreme ownership. Ownership it works it helps. It shows that you care. It shows that you're not gonNA use the day statements, and as the project manager I've said this before and I agree. We don't really own any of the people that stuff that we bring together to complete projects right, but will we do. Owner should feel big ownership on his the process right and we should take responsibility for all the aspects of the projects, successes and failures, so we should when we do great own it and give praise where it belongs to our team when we have failures, and this is probably the hardest part. Of Not using those statements, and while they should have done this, and they didn't tell me and I didn't know and again you don't show up for the big meetings with people with leadership, not knowing stuff about your project or your program or whatever you're doing as the project manager you have to take that ownership has Jaakko and say extreme ownership. So even you know he's an. An example so as a project manager. You're not the one that fat fingers a code right you hit. The wrong button causes assistant across right unless you're in a really technical project management role in your also part of the team Kinda worn both hats. You're probably not doing that traditional project manager now. COULD WE CONSIDER AS PROJECT MANAGERS? I'm not the one that hit the key K. Could we consider though that we could have provided more clear direction or more time more resources for the analysts to? Maybe they weren't as rushed, and maybe then they wouldn't have made. The mistake could be right. Sometimes stuff just happens, but you know what always look at it from that thing okay. I own this I'm supporting the project I don't like to say it's my project when people say your. Your project and I get it. It's yours because you're assigned to it, but it's not really mind right. It's the process to get people together to make that progress together on a project, so just think about that. How can you take ownership in different aspects and it doesn't mean take all the blame, but how can you constantly do review so the first thing I think that's going to be? A really efficient pattern is I take ownership. You GotTa do that right? Always consider. What could I have done better to help my team mate in the team overall just every single time you know in throughout the life cycle the project, the second thing which Kinda Parallels Covey second habit is playing with the end in mind to me I say plan ahead, but be flexible right, and so cubbies make sense playing with the end of mine, but you know sometimes trying to cram all the planning. Upfront for project is like trying to use a crystal ball or magic eight ball, and for some things we do have to do that, you know. Know for construction, or we have to have like say you're building a house, a foundation and then the frame, and then the pipes. You know you have to do those things in order, but also be ready that if what if something happens and you know just be flexible enough to not be so stringent in while we said this two months ago. It has to be just like this now. That doesn't mean you're not gonNA. Have you know fight scope creep and use your committees and make those decisions it just means plan ahead, but be flexible and dare. I say air quote Agile Right That's a big thing especially if you're doing software. Development You know again, it's hard. If you live in that waterfall world, I know primarily idea and a half, and trying to get some some more agile action in there but you know we we need. The Foundation for the frame had talked about before but you know we have to be flexible, so if it doesn't go away perfectly. Okay, and then what now get into little bit later, but but stuff happens right. People get sick. They change jobs. Supply chains. Get stalled. covid nineteen anyone personal protective equipment. Right so magic that you had this plan. Even if it was so, you're doing incident, management or something. You had this whole plan now. You can't order things from another country now. You can't get meat from the supplier now. You can't get supplies for the project. You're supporting All of that real real time stuff happening, so you could have planned ahead to a T., but you have. Have to be flexible and think about you know. How do we lessen or mitigate these risks? What does that lead to? We've talked about it here before a contingency planning. Did you contingency plan or able to do it quickly on the fly, so remember we. We like to use that pace planning, so have your primary plan it sunny. We got all the people in the stuff. We need all the time and the money. And then considered alternate plan We have to go fifty to seventy five percent people money and we have to do it in less time. GotTa gotTa consider that alternate contingency plan. Okay, we lost our primary resource. Can we contract our expert? Read our analysts. That's going to do the work so now you're getting into. You can't necessarily replace or just You, know, go down in percentage. You're actually losing resources losing time. Okay, you know this regulation says it now has to be a month earlier, so you can't move those things and then emergency plans. What if someone completely leaves? What if there's a turtle reorganize? Just stuff that you you can plan for in the emergency plan piece. Really. This pace model is really focused on wildland firefighting. Firefighting public. Safety but it applies here in project management, too, because there are emergencies right in real life things happen. What if a pandemic hits your entire organization right so now? What if everyone has to work from home? We can't do this. People can't visit changes the whole thing so pace, planning, primary alternate contingency and emergency plans. That's part of the planning ahead, but BA flexible second..

"project manager" Discussed on People, Process, Progress

"And you can look back through previous episodes and I did one just on charter elements but you know it the process of doing that. You'RE GONNA have some early good conversations as a project manager it manager. It's also a good opportunity for you to think about okay. What what do I think could be really efficient? And if you're new or just ask ask other folks your your leaders your your boss other senior project managers if you've been around for. I think it's always good to come to the table. Not with an empty or chart or not with an empty proposal but say hey. Here's what I'm thinking. And then how can we sure this operate? So you're not starting from square one four we're going back to that tender and kindling and the fire peace so for the the tin killing the tender. Rather so you know you hell these kind of like pine needles or or leaves or something and you don't want to just throw them in there because we'll just fall apart you WanNa Kinda Ball them upright so it makes a nice kind of fuel source. That's a little more compact plus it stays together and then for the kindling. Nabil kind of that teepee above those so for me as a project right. We're we're looking at the charter. We're looking at doing our kickoff We've brought together leaders. We've we've communicated very much to kind of let them know. Hey here's the structure. We think could work with this project. It's been approved with this or they may already have one or start of one so you know when you're looking at that tender when that hand off from the sponsors and leaders They may already have some of that. May already be kind of put together if you will and building those relationships right so kind of as you would with the tender and squeeze it together and make sure it's strong and it's it's working together. He ended the same thing with your leaders. As you get together as the project manager to make sure that you both have understanding of expectations for each other of your role right. What's the hierarchy of what you're doing is it project is is that not. Everybody works for you or you don't work. Nobody worked for you all that kind of stuff and the similar for the kindling. So you build that teepee. It's a much stronger structure really building that strong relationship with your business owners because these are the folks that you're GonNa work with very often that are in the leadership position to make decisions for the project. Day to day in the only exceptions kind of would be and that's really dependent again on on the level agreement that you've had is if there's a big change in money or scope or Time right or the quality and so if if there's a proposed change or an accidental one comes up that's when you and the business center together will have to go back to the leadership there so looking at step five is to add to the base right. So we're GONNA keep adding sticks to keep building up the fire as we need to get it going to get it sustained and this to me when I think about projects as a project manager. We've had some good meetings. Now we've got you know the bones of charter or maybe even a full charter. We've made sure that we're squared away. In our communication with leadership with our business owners and our partnership is pretty strong. And so for me. We're going to start adding tasks right. We're going to start getting down to okay. This kind of resource generally would do these kinds of tasks for this kind of project and maybe even starting to get into right. We have named resources. Now we're looking at resource needs specifically were asking for these type of analysts or this type of expert and the resource managers will look at their people and see who's available and then assign it and of course that priority depends on You know for me in the healthcare space. There's a lot of regulatory or safety or some some of those things. Help help us drive the priority verse whereas this in line with the other however many projects right so that that actually kind of helps sometimes but it also can be something. It project manager needs to consider because we're going to go to a resource manager and say. Hey I need someone or some people and it's not like there are people are just doing nothing right so they may already be busy and then we come in with this high level safety regulatory thing and that's something we need to be sensitive of is we're going to ask for their folks and it's it's a it's a kind of an ask but when you have very critical things to the business or the organization or the department it's coming to ask that's waited right but that's a conversation and that's that's part of the duty of a project manager is hey this let's just level set. This is this just has to happen so we have to have somebody the other thing. We can try to our schedule a little bit more right so we've got a high level. Hopefully one kind of month by month rough estimate way early and then now we can start. Adding some of those estimated hours from that level of effort early aren't and You know talking to our resources more the resource managers and saying well. What are you really think? And kind of get more into it and you know just like a fire we add more kindling right or more would to the base and keep building up while in projects. Sometimes you know what it looks like at the beginning is almost never really never the same at the end meaning. Do we need more people to lose? People did the schedule get longer. Was it shorter. And so we're always monitoring the fires at burning well as it not do. We need to add oxygen to it like more people. We're going to be kind of agile. Which means we can do this piece of it. Then we'll evaluate it then we'll do another one or we sticking with the waterfall. Where even then? It's still dependent on the phase before it right so if if we haven't initiated well and I don't mean just all the documents in box checked right then we really ready to execute or monitor or do any of that kind of stuff so number six as light the fire right now. We've got all this stuff together we've got our kindling and our base and everything. It's you know striking a match leading it from the box of the pyramid from the bottom per you know again stuff guys need to know book. It's great so when the team is ready for me for projects that's when we're going to make sure we get approval right and we're GONNA execute so we're going to start building stuff. We're going to start changing the workflow or or adapting it or whatever. The project is focused again for it. It's you know we're going to build the software. We're going to work with the vendor to build the software based on specs that we give them or we're going to prepare the devices or a combination of all of that together right because you know some complex projects have a bit of all of that and then we're going to execute the work we're going to build and they were going to get ready to and then eventually go live. Which means we're going to put this new thing in place. We're going to improve on whatever process we had but it's the day where we say. Okay these new devices are out there. This new software is coming out and so there's a lot of preparation that we've done in preparing the site and building up the fire and having relationships and now it's time to light it at some point. We just have to go and IT'S A. It's a very stressful time for everybody. Because it's we've already put a lot of work in this point and now we're GONNA see it out in the environment which I've mentioned before if you've done projects out there or any other kind of task you know that you can test something on a few folks you can do it in the lab. But it's never the same until you actually start right so you can have the prettiest looking base with tinder and kindling. And it's ready to go when it's all dry and it takes like twenty matches to get it. Let right is as good as it looks. The fire doesn't start and if you've ever gone camping then you know that that could be a problem so number seven is to keep the fire going right so you gotta keep it. You get lit now you gotTa keep it going at least for awhile. Maybe we were GONNA cook. It's keeping you warm. You're going to build from the fire. Guidance from guys need no. I'm GonNa this is step number seven you're gonNA build a fire with larger pieces and add is necessary right pretty straightforward so. Let it. It's going to keep it going. You're going to keep adding to it and so for projects as a project manager. You're executing you live. You'RE GONNA be proactive in supporting. Your team's removing obstacles. If they have any maybe some areas didn't even realize the project was coming their way. So that's a gap right that circles back to communication what. How do we fix that gap other people that are obstacles? That don't WanNa do the new thing. The new process use the new product. Well that needs to be brought up with your business owner. What they were leaders We need to work through that. Because it's not. You know your projects team whose job it was to make the stuff you know the technical things devices together to sell this to everyone to use it. It's it's yours as a project manager with leadership to do that ahead of time as much as possible and when you run into obstacles to help facilitate discussions to say to let folks know the why of things right asked for more resources if you need him. So if you're fires. Dampening down you need more would right got get it in the woods. GotTa get it from the store if you buying those bundles. If you're on a project in your in your becoming kind of resource poor because you run out of stuff where people are out. Or changing your whatever's happening then you gotta ahead of time. Proactively can for expected things for unexpected. Get back to this resource managers and say. Hey you know this is slowing us down. This is the gap we have. And do the best you can and it may not even be your folks that may be the vendors so escalating with your primary reporting contact and then the leadership and their organ and all that kind of stuff and you got to keep up to date so party keeping the fire going of keeping the support for the project in the awareness and the buy in is letting leaders know. Here's how the go live is going. Here's how adoption is going. Here's or not going right. It's not going to go perfect. But here's the status of it. Let's stay up to date on our reports. Do the best we can and that aspect to that information also helps keep the fire going. So that if there's grumbling about this new product or process or something that leadership already knows about it and they can help their leadership meetings are in discussions or with what they see in support the project because they're in the now the last step of any fire but before that a step that you could take is subscribe to the podcast. Please reach out to me on People process progress at G. L. DOT com. There's a facebook page people process progress. And then there's people process progress dot com. So feel free to do that. So this last thing is putting out the fire right. We've we've used it. We're going to bed for the night. Were done with the campground. Whatever it is It's the old water. Mix it up. Water Mix it water right. Do that until. There's nothing semen. There's nothing ha there's no Kohl's As a former firefighter public safety guy in public health guy..

"You'RE GONNA learn something new about some new product or process or the people in the organization or something right so by default. You're getting better and if you can even push that a little further and say well you know what for this time? I'M GONNA use this new form that we're starting to use and I'm going to try and fill out every single task or update or just really kind of refine your schedule refine your task details or less details. Whatever it is to make your project more efficient. We should be seeking responsibility and accepting responsibility. The second of the principals with the integrity value that to me speaks to the You know I've mentioned Jack. Llewellyn can y'all might be familiar with them that listen Extreme ownership right so as a leader no bad teams only bad leaders so if we are project managers. That are proactive. That want to be successful for ourselves for families for organizations for all those different reasons than we seek out chances to have responsibility. We should want to be the person that's chosen to go help other people when they're having issues. We should also openly accept responsibility when we fall short even if our teammates fall short right if it's if it's our team that we're facilitating facilitating process for and that. We're helping some of that. Responsibility lies on us and the last is said the example. No one's perfect. Sometimes you'll be cranky. Sometimes you'll be tired whether you had your coffee. You're not stayed up late. What's going on and especially now right. We're in this long drawn out time of remote work and even though I've been working remotely one hundred percent for almost a year. It's a lot to not be able to drive around as much or go different places and you know but set the example so you know a couple episodes ago. I I gave the examples of of good telework of you know. Put yourself in that mode of I'm GONNA get up. I'm going to exercise. I'M GONNA get dressed for the day. I'm GonNa have my breakfast going to work like I would if I was in the Office. I have three kids at home. My wife's also working from home so I totally get it. We're also trying to balance. You know being schoolteachers. Which on town amazingly difficult so shout out to all the schoolteachers for helping us keep going but we have to. We have to ever team. We have to set the example and throughout a project. We also should do the things I talked about before. The other principles that apply to the values of duty respected integrity. And try and be that example. Because there are a lot of is on us as project. Managers both from our supervisors from their supervisors from organizational leaders from the members of the team. And that's fine. That's that's part of our Gig so the next piece. I wanted to touch on has to do with becoming a leader why people choose to be a leader. I'm GonNa read another statement and again I'M GONNA swap out terms so fire. Leaders bring order to chaos improve other people's lives and strengthened organizations leading in able us to leave a legacy for the leaders of the future so that they can take our places well prepared for the road ahead. These are the rewards of leadership there affects will be seen and felt long after our careers. And so why be a project manager right? Why do you choose to leave? Why do we lead because we want to make a difference? How do you bring or how have you brought order to chaos right if you come in to like? I have a few times both in my incident. Management Planning Section. Chief had but certainly as a project manager where people are ordering stuff. They're doing things all over the place in different processes in your ass. Hey Go home outlet. See what's happening. That is how we as project. Managers bring order to chaos. Start with the discussion. I've talked a lot and one hundred percent. Believe it and I've talked on a few other podcasts. Which is cool. That'd be coming out soon about those foundation. Four right at a minimum help get objectives quickly. See what the organizational chart is A. Who's who see what resources are available or get some and communicate start there and all the other tools and methodologies and whatever else will come along with it you know it and you do see rewards from that. You'll see rewards from the order that you've brought to maybe a chaotic situation and you're reducing people stress and you're making the organization more efficient and you're helping save some money and you know that that is a great reward of being ineffective leader or project manager in this case right so that in that first part of the statement. I read about fire leaders. Bring order to chaos. We'll project managers bring order to chaos. That's a huge part of what we do or what we should be doing. So here's a couple more statements about leadership and bring teams together and again. This is the wildland fire service version in the wildfire service.

"project manager" Discussed on Journey to $100 Million

"Hey there. I'm kevin daisy and americans and join us on our journey to the one hundred million dollar companies. Yo what's up everyone. It's kevin daisy here. Having a dedicated professional project manager enger allows you to do more with less resources so instead of growing your team with extra people all the time in every every area having a project manager even on a small size has allowed us to keep track of things schedule things tasking what have you n._b._a. Efficient with that so instead of having one person manage their schedule and try to keep up with all the tasks that we have. We have a project manager. That does does that for them. They also look at schedules. When we bring on new client you know as a salesperson. I may say we're going to get this done for you right away. More the reality reality is our project. Manager has to schedule that so huge shot out to jamal anderson. He's our project manager. He recently got his p._m._p. P._m._p. through p._m. Which is a the professional certification for project management so he's well trained. He's been doing this for a long time with thus and he's an invaluable member of the team. Jamal was actually join testing for software with eric. Before louis merged he stayed on board and he has grown and shifted into project management and again without jamal. We would be running blind. It'd be really hard to keep up with all the clients that we have in the tasking that we have without him so now like i said if i'm outselling i talked to a prospect. It's easy for me to say things like well. We'll have that done with right away or next week or in thirty days will build a website for you but now i've actually catching myself to say typically. It takes this long but i had the answer to my project manager. He controls the schedule and that makes things a lot a lot easier accessory expectation and it puts you know puts control into jamal's hands instead of making promises that we can't keep but but my question would be is. Do you have a project manager. Regardless of what kind of business you have most companies like us at our size. Do not have a project manager but i think it greatly helps us. It allows us again to get more out of the team that we have instead an ad team members to keep up our project manager. You can just schedule things properly and help with the tasking so that our people can focus on the work. A project manager has been huge for us. Think about the cost of a project manager in your industry and whether or not you think would benefit you instead of hiring four five more people look at take a project manager as someone to get more out of the team that you have our goal here at ray digital is maximum prophet with a small team. Everyone wins that way. We can give back to our team. We can give better raises. We can share more so that's our go here. We want a small team. That's focused in efficient not just hiring extra people to hire him. Thank you for listening. Is it time for new website. Let's say if so we'd love to help you out.

"project manager" Discussed on Daily Sales Tips

"If you've ever built a close plan around a deal you've seen a bit of what this type of project plan might look like typically in those scenarios your identifying a compelling event or a start date with your client and working backwards to define. In all the steps that are required to get there, and then defining dates and responsibilities throughout the in that document, you'll identify things like legal and contract negotiations, the key meetings and presentations that will need to take place along the way and all of the various stakeholders sign offs, you'll need things like that in my model. I actually take that a couple of steps further part of this is because I work for a professional services firm and this beyond the contract project work is really what I'm selling. But this works just as well in other product or solution sales efforts because it builds trust removes risk and helps your client start to believe that the results are promising are actually going to happen. Here's what I mean. The way I think about sales assigned contract is more of a starting line than it is a finish line. The real finish line is delivering on the results that your client is really signing up for and if you. Can work with them to build a road map with enough details and timelines to help them actually see how they're going to get from here to there you I establish a ton of trust. Because you're demonstrating that you know, what you're doing and you can show them the actual steps to success. It also takes a ton of risk out of their decision. Too often in sales were asking someone to make this giant mental leap from contracting for a solution to end result without providing much clarity around how they're actually going to get there, and I can virtually guarantee that your competitors aren't doing this. Why? Because it's hard it requires a bunch of up front work. But if you do it, you're win rates are going to increase dramatically. Just make sure you do some really solid qualifying on the front end because you don't want to invest this level of effort in a deal. That's not real. Although this also serves as a. Great qualifier in itself, if you lay out this approach with your client, and they're not willing to participate. It's very unlikely that you have a legit deal. So if they do buy in don't think that you have to do all of this yourself. This is what team selling is all about you may need to get allied with your internal services organization or account management or client success teams or collaborate with an outside partner or potentially all of the above depending on the size and complexity of the opportunity. Ideally, you're building the plan with your client. And it needs to include details around who's responsible for what and win. Then you build a cadence of what are essentially project management calls with the core team to hold each other
