PM FlashBlog 2014 – Australia

pmflashblog2014We continue into week three of the 2014 PM FlashBlog with contributions from bloggers in Australia. Unfortunately, I didn’t see a post from New Zealand.

  • Jon Whitty recalls a study he conducted in Brisbane, asking project managers to draw pictures about managing projects. No one drew a Gantt chart!
  • Stephen Duffield considers the gap in the way organizations learn lessons from projects.
  • Shim Marom reports from Melbourne on the cultural aspects of managing projects in a city with a diverse population.
  • Tony Adams notes the positive impact of Infrastructure Australia, a sort of national-level PMO, on governance of their investment in projects.

Of course, better late than never.

  • Ralf Finchette reports on how the diversity of London’s population makes communication … uh, interesting.
