Project Manager Burnout There is so much focus these days on getting more done with less. Delivering faster. Increasing efficiency. Being excellent at work while rocking it all well at home too, right? And though I'm all for staying focused and productive, here's something I've observed. One consequence of trying to stay hyper-productive and being everything you can possibly be--or feel like you should be--can be increased stress. Less downtime. More hours. More caffeine. Less sleep. And all of that can lead to burnout. So what can we do about that? Today I'm excited to introduce you to Dr. Neha Sangwan. She's the author of a new book entitled Powered by Me: From Burned Out to Fully Charged at Work and in Life. In this episode, you'll get a better idea of what leads to burnout, beyond just the typical drivers that come to mind, such as physical exhaustion. Neha provides practical ideas and techniques to help us catch when we're starting to drift towards burnout. It's a discussion I've been looking forward to sharing with you! You can learn more about Neha and her work at NehaSangwan.com. For more on this topic, check out: Episodes 106 and 132, with Tom Rath about his books on these themes. Episode 395, with Josefine Campbell about her book on helping when you and your team are low on energy, and Episode 397, with Dr. Julia DiGangi about her book on emotions.

Productivity in business requires your time. If you can devise ways to free up more of your time capital, you can live a more balanced life. Which is precisely the reason why a significant 64% of businesses believe that artificial intelligence will help increase their overall productivity, as revealed in a Forbes Advisor survey. This demonstrates the growing confidence in AI's potential to transform business operations. Furthermore, A quarter of companies are adopting AI because of labor shortages. As labor shortages become a pressing concern, 25% of companies are turning to Aasadoption to address this issue, according to an IBM report. AI helps businesses optimize operations and compensate for the lack of human resources. Laura Bowers is the CEO of The PMO Boss. “After 20 years of leading projects and teams I've witnessed some of the best and worst practices out there. I then took that knowledge and developed an AI-powered approach for implementing project management and productivity hacks, using the B.O.S.S. Method. I absolutely love talking about making project management simpler for already overburdened entrepreneurs, and the impact of great leadership at all levels.“ “Much like the rest of the world, Covid got me thinking about things. After several dramatic twists and turns, a contract I had been working on for 8 years wrapped up. I took this as my opportunity to leap into launching my own AI project management and productivity consulting business, The PMO Boss. It was time for me to take my expertise and leverage my skills and voice as a leader, an entrepreneur, a working mom...a Boss. The journey into entrepreneurship has had some incredible stops along the way with one of the most significant being summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro.” She joined me this week to tell me more.

On this episode of Fuel For Life, I interview my good friend and fellow pastor, Gheorghe Rosca, Jr. Gheorghe is a Founding Board Member at Protect Our Kids (POK), a coalition of parents, community leaders, attorneys, physicians, pastors, teachers and concerned citizens united in the belief that today's public schools threaten our children's welfare. Public schools have a role in educating children on matters of basic biology, anatomy, and reproduction. However, the promotion of se*ual intimacy, se*ual orientation and fluid gender identities are matters that far exceed the rightful boundaries of the public-school system. So too is the advancement of Marxist Critical Theory ideology and the “re-framing” of American history to indoctrinate children into politically driven and misleading narratives. Taken together, these serve as a clarion call of the dangers to children in the public schools and, by extension, our society. POK exists to inform parents about the scope of these combined threats, their rights as parents, and to protect our kids from the harms of public-school indoctrination. Pastor Gheorghe is the eighth of twelve children, born in Romania under the communist regime of Nicolae Ceaucescu. His family immigrated to the states legally in 1991. He grew up in Southern California and lives in Orange with his wife and four children. He pastors New Hope church in Placentia, CA. He holds a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering and an MBA with an emphasis in Project Management from California Polytechnic University. As a registered Civil Engineer in the state of California, he leads diverse teams on large transportation infrastructure projects. As a Founding Board Member, he is passionate about protecting the freedoms granted in the Constitution that are aligned with the values of the Founding Fathers for future generations.Connect with Gheorghe on these following Social Media Platforms:Click here to follow Protect Our Kids on Instagram.Click here to friend Gheorghe on Facebook.Click here to learn more about Gheorghe Rosca, Jr.Click here to visit the Protect Our Kids official website which hosts an enormous amount of free resources for parents.

For this episode of the Data Center Frontier Show podcast, DCF's Editor in Chief Matt Vincent chats with Brian Green, EVP Operations, Engineering and Project Management, for EdgeConneX. The discussion touches on data center operations, sustainable implementations/deployments, renewable power strategies, and ways to operationalize renewables in the data center. Under Brian's leadership, the EdgeConneX Houston data center completed a year-long project measuring the viability of 24/7 carbon-free energy utilizing AI-enabled technology. With this approach, EdgeConneX ensured the data center is powered with 100% renewable electricity, and proved that even if the power grid operates on fossil-fueled electricity generation, real-time hourly increments can be applied to new and existing data centers. As a result, for every given hour, EdgeConneX and its customers can operate throughout the year without emitting any CO2 with zero reliance on fossil standby generation during dark or cloudy periods. This innovative program will be duplicated at other EdgeConneX facilities globally. Another real-world example discussed is related to a facility where the local community complained about the noise of the fans. Brian's team worked to improve the noise level by changing fan speeds, and as a result, the data center and the local community realized multiple benefits, including enhanced community relations by removing the noise disturbance, increased efficiencies, and reducing amount of power used, a big cost-saver for the data center. Along the way, Brian explains how he, along with EdgeConneX team, are big believers in the company's motto: Together, we can innovate for good.

Is there an ideal balance for the design professional; a median point that relies equally on creativity and process? In this episode, Alexandra Crevier shares her experience melding a background in civil engineering and construction management with the somewhat less rigid world of residential design. In this episode we learn: - educate yourself with books, YouTube, podcasts—never stop learning - when implementing a design, theory doesn't cut it, pick up the phone and ask your contractor for help - bring formal process to the residential construction world - clients love to see you managing the project with process - host a post-mortem for every project and don't forget to include your trades who will have valuable insight as well - professional doesn't have to mean boring, it's ok to have fun with clients - saying yes to everything is the number one mistake Success is not an accident. It's a strategy. Business of Design® is that strategy. Become a member, today. https://businessofdesign.com/?ref=2&campaign=podcast
Jean Coetzee: From Obsession to Ownership, Avoiding the Deadline Trap in Agile Teams Read the full Show Notes and search through the world's largest audio library on Scrum directly on the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast website: http://bit.ly/SMTP_ShowNotes. In this episode, Jean recounts a cautionary tale of a team with an unhealthy obsession with meeting deadlines. The team's relentless pursuit led to a sense of loss of control and disconnection from the broader reality, paralleling themes from "The Matrix." Jean emphasizes the importance of reclaiming control over one's time and lives, and urges listeners to reflect on what makes a high-performing team member. He underscores that meeting deadlines should not be the sole purpose of a team, and that true ownership lies in a more holistic approach to achieving success. Featured Book of the Week: Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink In this segment, Jean discusses the profound impact of Jocko Willink's book, "Extreme Ownership," on his journey as a Scrum Master. He highlights how the concept of ownership is crucial in Agile practices and applies not only to individuals but to the entire team. The book emphasizes the importance of understanding, camaraderie, and trust within a team, ultimately leading to high performance. Jean stresses that roles don't define ownership; it's a collective responsibility for achieving success in Agile endeavors, making "Extreme Ownership" a valuable resource for both Scrum Masters and product owners.

When Emotions Are Rising On Your Project Let's say you're sitting in a meeting tomorrow for a project you are leading. You're looking to get sign-off and, based on the pre-meetings you had with key stakeholders, the meeting should go smoothly. But seemingly out of the blue, a key stakeholder speaks up and starts sharing objections. Right there in front of everyone, which includes your boss, by the way. Things are starting to derail and you can feel some anger starting to build up. If we could see a thought bubble over you, you might be saying, “I can't believe they're sabotaging this! They didn't bring any of this up when we talked about it before the meeting! They're throwing me and my project under the bus!” That's a pivotal leadership moment right there. Maybe for you, it's a demanding boss. Or a deeply emotional situation outside of work. The critical issue is this: How do we respond? Does it help, or do we make it worse? How do we navigate the emotional rollercoaster of leading teams and projects—and families and friendships? Our ability to do that can make an enormous difference in our careers and life. In this episode, we're continuing a series of discussions on the topic of our emotions. And I'm excited to introduce you to Dr. Julia Digangi. For many years, Julia has worked with individuals who have endured the worst traumas, from survivors of domestic abuse to combat veterans, and helped them transform their energy and rise to powerful new heights. Based on her experience, she has recently published a remarkably insightful new book Energy Rising: The Neuroscience of Leading with Emotional Power. What I love about this book is that it gives a perspective on navigating the emotional challenges of our life in a way I've not seen in any other books. It's deeply based in research and practice but it's accessible to all of us, even if we don't know our amygdala from our anterior cingulate cortex. Ha! You can learn more about Julia and her work at DrJuliaDigangi.com/. For more on this topic, check out: Episode 394, with Joshua Freedman about his book on emotional intelligence.

Join me and Lisa for a deep dive into the wild world of entrepreneurship. I love this one, because of how bravely she faced the unknown. Sometimes plunging headfirst into it is the best way to make waves! Lisa tells us all about her journey from corporate to business owner, and the bigger vision she had for companies as a trusted consultant. (And if you're a roller coaster fan, we've got a LOT of great metaphor in this one!) Can't-Miss Moments From This Episode:Plot twist: if you hate something in your biz, there's no law saying you HAVE to do it. So what do you do instead? Lisa and I have some thoughts on playing to your strengths and doing things you *gasp* ENJOY… Take the ick out of sales: opening your sales call with “Hey, Just checking in” might just be tanking your chance of closing a deal (and making everyone uncomfortable in the process). Ditch the fake pleasantries and try out Lisa's ‘human connection-inspired' approach instead… Spoiler Alert: Things break down (I'm looking at you, technology). So how do you stop the $hIt hitting the fan when they do? Lisa's take on documenting systems and processes may just be your lifesaver when the worst inevitably happens… Ever been told you're wrong for doing what feels right? Here's what it means to embrace what works for you (all the while having fun flipping the bird to the conformity police)... Hands up if you LIKE change. (If your hands are up, I'm checking for flaming pants.) Humans and change? Classic combo for a resistance party. Lisa's unveiling the Hogwarts-level magic that happens when you not only embrace change but keep it alive over time...This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don't miss out - listen now! Lisa's Bio:Lisa L. Levy loves a good puzzle. After witnessing the confusion that ensued after new technology systems were integrated into offices in the early 2000s, she didn't panic. She saw an opportunity to establish effective processes that support employees and businesses grappling with evolving technology. Then a pattern emerged: internal teams kept failing to communicate with one another in the wake of change. To respond, Lisa founded Lcubed Consulting. Lisa helps companies align people, processes, and technology to utilize agility as a strategic advantage and acknowledge change is a business constant. Her secret sauce to success is leveraging key elements of Project Management, Process Performance Management, Internal Controls, and Organizational Change Management to build teams with the skills and capabilities to drive strategic results.Lisa is a 3-time #1 best-selling author.

What's the #1 thing to know about experiential technology? How long do LED walls last? (The answer will surprise you.) Is a project done when it opens, or are growing pains normal? What happens when you use technology just to have technology? What's an “integrator”? Is sustainability a thing in experiential tech? How? What missteps waste money, ruin the experience, and let content go stale? Jonathan Alger (Managing Partner, C&G Partners) is joined by Will Bullins (Executive Consultant, Electrosonic) to go over six Experiential Tech Insights you'll want to remember. Along the way: AVIXA, a little wonking out on pixel pitch distance formulas, and of course, the Las Vegas Sphere. Talking Points: 1. Never use technology just to have technology.2. Be clear about your true goals.3. Growing pains are normal, after opening.4. Sustainability is a thing.5. Discuss fears, budgets and timeframes openly and often.6. Start the discussion early, even if briefly. Guest Bio: Will Bullins brings over ten years of creative technology design to his role as Executive Consultant. He has worked on a wide range of high-profile experiential projects which helps give him a strong blend of creativity and technical design skills. Will is passionate about human-centered design and how to use technology in a way that works best for the user.

Regularly update your team members and stakeholders about the project's progress, challenges, and any changes.Step Number Five: Monitor the project's progress regularly. This allows you to identify potential issues early and make necessary adjustments.Step Number Six: After the project's completion, review its performance. This will give you valuable insights that you can apply in future projects.Step Number Seven: Always keep learning and improving. The world of project management is constantly evolving, so stay abreast of the latest tools, techniques, and best practices.To further internalize these principles of project management, consider these reflective prompts:Prompt Number One: Think about a recent project in your startup.

In this episode, Ricardo discusses the recent upheaval at OpenAI, likening it to a dramatic chapter from HBO's succession. CEO Sam Altman was fired on a turbulent weekend, leading to speculation and confusion. Microsoft, unaware of the decision, expressed concern. Key researchers resign, and Altman is rumored to return. OpenAI appointed Emmett Shear as CEO, and Microsoft later announced Altman's joining. Ricardo emphasizes the lessons on volatility, communication failures, and the importance of governance in tech giants. The sudden changes raise uncertainties about AI development and investments, highlighting the unpredictable nature of the industry.
No episódio desta semana, Ricardo aborda a tumultuada reviravolta na OpenAI, comparando-a a um capítulo dramático de Sucessão da HBO. Em um fim de semana turbulento, o CEO Sam Altman foi demitido, causando especulações e confusões. A Microsoft, alheia à decisão, expressa preocupação. Pesquisadores-chave renunciam, e há rumores sobre o retorno de Altman. A OpenAI nomeia Emmett Shear como CEO, e posteriormente a Microsoft anuncia a adesão de Altman. Ricardo destaca lições sobre volatilidade, falhas de comunicação e a importância da governança nas gigantes de tecnologia. As mudanças súbitas levantam incertezas sobre o desenvolvimento da IA e investimentos, destacando a natureza imprevisível da indústria.
Risk management is the process of identifying, assessing, and prioritizing potential risks, and taking actions to minimize or control their impact on an organization or project. What does that look like in your organization? Let's talk about it!
Agile is going through a lot of changes right now. The changes aren't so much in what it is and how it works - that seems to be a bit stable at the moment. The changes stem more from how adopters feel about it, their ideas about much agile they need, what they need to achieve it, and what kind of support they want getting there. As the space works through these growing pains, many Agilists respond to discomfort they way they (unfortunately) have since the very beginning, by pointing figures at each other and saying “OM%G! CAN YOU BELIEVE THOSE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE AGILE?” It is a sad but true thing that baked deep into the culture of the agile community is this idea that the best way to prove that you are good enough, smart enough and doggone it, people like you is by calling out the people who you think are not good enough, smart enough and doggone it… you get the idea. In response to one of these incidents that showed up in his LinkedIn Feed, Andy Jordan posted an article called “Letting Go of Pure Agile” (https://www.projectmanagement.com/articles/893794/letting-go-of--pure--agile), making the case that whether or not you are truly Lean, or doing Scrum “right”, or whatever, doesn't matter because the business cares about results and that is what we should all be focused on. I reached out to Andy to ask for an interview with the hope that we could dig a little deeper into his concerns over the purists, finding the right tools for the job, the current state of agile and project management, and, of course, how AI is impacting us. (It was also just great getting to catch up with him.) Andy, Mark Price-Perry, and I used to do workshops for PMI on Redefining your PMO.

ONUS: Rethinking Agile Roles and Structures, With Craig Smith and Michael Huynh In this episode, we kick things off by revisiting a captivating talk delivered by Michael and Craig at the Agile Online Summit 2023. The duo urged us to reevaluate the roles of the Scrum Master and Product Owner, and even hinted at potential shifts within Agile organizations. This discussion sparked a larger contemplation in my mind, extending beyond the core arguments presented by Michael and Craig. I took to Twitter to ponder the possibility of Agile serving as a foundational change in how we perceive organizational structures and leadership, leading to a potential revolution. What might this mean for you and your organization? Rethinking Agile Roles Before delving into what the future might hold for Agile practitioners, we asked Craig and Michael to provide a concise summary of their main points from the talk. They urged us to go beyond following “agile dogma” Questioning the purpose of Scrum Master and Product Owner roles Refocus on value generation in Agile practices The need for systemic thinking In this episode, we also explore how it's not just Agile roles, but leaders at various levels, that have strayed from the essence of what Agile truly stands for. CTOs and Chief Product Owners find themselves ensnared in a rigid adherence to processes as well, even when those processes go against their stated intent of adopting Agile. Are Agile Roles Overhead? Craig and Michael raise critical questions about Agile roles, challenging their perceived value and longevity within organizations. Is there a risk of losing sight of the original intent behind roles like Scrum Master and Product Owner? Are these positions temporary or do they inadvertently add another layer of complexity? The conversation als touches on the heart of Agile transformation: business agility. How can organizations efficiently deliver value to the market? There's concern that leaders have become disconnected from the actual work done by their teams. The very essence of leadership may be at risk of being diluted or misunderstood. Leadership in Software Organizations: A Glimpse into the Future In this segment, we discuss the Culture, Structure and Process aspects that we need to take into account to keep our organizations truly Agile, no matter what roles we end up having. Culture: Shaping Behaviors for Success The importance of culture in shaping organizational behavior cannot be overstated. Leaders must adapt to the unique cultures of their organizations, whether they're fast-moving and less structured or operate within a different paradigm. Structure: Redefining Hierarchies In a rapidly evolving technological landscape, do we need traditional hierarchies? Leaders must understand the core of their businesses and ensure they are moving in the right direction, but do they require the conventional structures that have become commonplace? Process: The Evolution Beyond Projects The notion of projects may be antiquated for software businesses. Start-stop methodologies may no longer align with the dynamic nature of the industry. The changes needed pose a significant challenge to the Agile community.

In this episode, Ricardo highlights the danger of uninformed opinions, especially in the era of influencers. Ricardo emphasizes the need for a "place of speech" where individuals speak from a position of knowledge.

This warning extends to project management, advocating for informed decisions and discouraging the misuse of influence for unsupported viewpoints. The overarching message is to seek reliable information, exercise caution in expressing opinions, and be ethical in leadership roles. Listen to the podcast to learn more.
