Your team is your parents' age. Can you win their respect?
Fortune
Im 28 and was recently put in charge of a brand management project where everyone else is much older than I am and, since I have no real experience as a leader, its been weird. The hardest part is that everyone who reports to me is roughly my parents age, late 40s to mid-50s, and certain people never miss a chance to point that out.

6 ways to improve client relations: Ingredients for success and happiness
Liquid Planner
"Cesar, we are not happy. We need to talk." That's what I heard once from a client when I was left alone with him after a meeting. Sometimes your clients will come out and tell you that they're not satisfied with how you're managing an agency project. Sometimes they'll hint at it. Sometimes you can see it in their body language. Sometimes you don't know it until they’ve let you go.

Critical thinking: The missing element in project management processes
Herding Cats
Complex and unstable environments encountered in project work — especially software development project work — calls for critical thinking by all participants. Complexity comes in part from technical uncertainties, starting with requirements for software capabilities. If there is uncertainty in what capabilities are needed, the project is starting off on the path to failure on day one. Certainly the functional and operational requirements have emergent properties that create uncertainty.

6 fundamentals of project-management success
Federal Times
Why is it that failure rates remain high even with the myriad new project management, governance and development techniques of the last 20 years? Cobb's Paradox is as true today as when authored 20 years ago. The difference between successful and unsuccessful projects often comes down to having a project manager who understands and manages the risks that are in the pathway between the users' need and project outcome.

Ending and beginning
The Tao of Project Management
Lao Tzu encouraged his followers to observe and seek to understand the laws of nature. Over the years I tried to pass that wisdom on through the project management courses I developed and ran, but without much success. I now understand that the Way cannot be taught in the same way as project management methodology, it can only be observed and understood by someone who is willing to open their mind.
