#3 and Feeling Good!

It has been a couple of weeks since my last post. No, I am not breaking my New Year's resolution, things have just been quite busy and the blessings continue to come! Here are several updates of what has been happening:

1) We received a message last night that this little old blog has been ranked #3 in a new listing of the Top 25 Blogs You Aren't Reading Yet. The two in front of this one are collaborative efforts, so we can say we are the #1 individually run (stretch much?). The list was published by Mr. Manager. You can read the article here:

I have read through some of the other blogs listed and it is a great compilation of new project management blogs. I am quite honored!

2) I was interviewed recently by for their podcast. This is the 67th podcast that they have created. You can hear the podcast here:

Also, check out some of the other podcasts that they have. The content is fantastic!

3) I just finished working with the RMC Project Management team to create the audio book and an e-learning course based on the Stop Playing Games! book. I truly enjoy spending time with the RMC team. They always are so professional, down-to-earth, and driven for excellence. Laurie, Erica, Tim, Eric, Whitney, Jason, and a host of others are so much fun to be around and they make me look so much better than I really am!

Other than all of that, not much has been going on ;) Later this week I will restart the answering of questions that have been posed in the various webinars. I hope this message finds you well.

Passionately forging in to 2011,

Blogging a Status?

Interesting thought!  I was reading an excerpt from Andy Wibbels titled "Blogs and Business: What You Must Know" and he suggested utilizing a Blog for project status.

He stated that "Blogs can provide an instant snapshot of a project's status, an archive of past reports, and an easier way to access deliverables.  You won't be annoying your employees by clogging their inbox with an 8 gigabyte PDF."

Clearly he has worked with PM's that have a fondness for charts and graphs!  However, it does provide an interesting thought.  Many companies are looking for ways to go green and many have not invested in a Project and Portfolio Management type of technology.  Some companies utilize Sharepoint for this, but it too can become cumbersome in navigation.  Blogging can be a perfect fit for those.

I have seen many organizations still want the ill-fated printed status report.  They must have their red/yellow/green!  The question is, when is the last time a decision was made off that status report?  When is the last time someone in your company stopped a project because it was red, or put more resources on a project when it went yellow?  If the answer is "never", then maybe a change to the way it is done is warranted.

In any case, the article did make me think!

Until next time!
