I have not disappeared from the planet, I’ve just been heads-down working on business development, social media projects and prototyping several exciting new products for the consumer market. More details coming soon.
In the meantime, the summer has yielded a few lessons about project management. About how work expands to fill the time allotted; how several equally intelligent people can see round as square, or red as blue; and the importance of establishing clear communications; and how in some cultures saving face is better than fessing up. People!
But I’ve take solace from knowing I’m not alone (ha, you too?). There’s even a website called project cartoon that let’s you customize your own storyboard to show how things went horribly wrong. Sometimes you’ve just got a laugh and get on with it.
