Welcome back to my newsletter discussing the latest trends in project management, leadership and strategy implementation.
Articles, podcasts and other interesting stuff that I came across over the past month.
With the aim of learning from past failures, this section analyses, using a simplified framework developed over more than ten years, a notorious project that was poorly managed and was terribly unsuccessful. What is fascinating about all projects is that they all share a set of common characteristics, which, if well understood, soundly addressed, and actively managed; can increase the chances of success and minimize the risk of failure.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Robin Speculand, one of the first experts focusing on strategy implementation. I was curious to hear about his personal project, as well as his views on the link between project management and successful strategy execution.
Projects, have, are, and will be an essential part of value creation and social transformation. We are witnessing the rise of the project economy. The so-called gig economy is driven by projects.
