Project Management Lessons from the New Horizons Mission to Pluto

  We’ve all had that project. The one that we’ve been working on forever, not only because we have to, but because it has a real purpose.  It could be anything from writing a book like J.K Rowling (17 years to write Harry Potter) to creating the state-of-the-art FIFA World Cup stadium. It’s a project that’s going to change the world when it’s finished and so it’s crucial to ensure that it is done right. Now imagine that project is called New Horizons. New Horizons was a project launched by NASA that took 6 years to prepare and then...

The Tragic Flaws of a Project Manager

    (Spoilers for a 415-year-old play follow.) One of the most famous tragic flaws in history is that of Hamlet, which eventually led to his downfall.

That Hamlet manages to kill Claudius before he...

Inside Out in the Office: A Closer Look at Anger

Over the weekend I went to see the Disney-Pixar film, Inside Out, and I have to say that it was fantastic. The film is about how a child’s psyche changes when she moves from Minnesota where she grew up to San Francisco.The adventure the audience is taken on is one that goes on inside her mind, enacted by her main emotions: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger.   It got me thinking about emotions and human psychology quite a bit. In the film, it showed that the child had absolutely no control over her emotions and that they had full...

5 ways managers can use stress to their advantage

  What does swearing, kissing, chewing gum and eating garlic all have in common? Well, apparently they are just some of the more unusual ways you can quickly reduce your stress levels. In the workplace, chronic stress impacts around one in five people and is thought to cause 105 million sick days each year, at a cost of some £1.24bn to UK business.

Kanban first appeared as a system of labeling parts used on assembly lines in production at a Toyota factory, and goes...

How to Maximize your Effectiveness as a Project Manager

“Of all the things I’ve done, the most vital is coordinating the talents of those who work for us and pointing them towards a certain goal.” – Walt Disney Project management is a huge responsibility in any context, and it has to be conducted effectively so that projects are completed both on time and on budget (or as near to the deadline and budget limit as possible).
