My latest article for AITS was published today: On Being Intrepid as a Project Manager.
The word “intrepid” comes from Latin and means “not alarmed.” I often say my primary contribution to a project is being a calming influence. Intrepid behavior – the ability to perform effectively under conditions of uncertainty in complex environments and difficult circumstances – is often what the team needs most from the leads, project manager, and sponsor. Practical applications include risk management, stakeholder engagement, and of course, dealing with financial and other resource constraints. If you have comments on this thought, please leave a comment at AITS. If you have suggestions for future topics, please leave a comment here.
As always, thanks for taking the time to read my stuff.
