Of Firefighting And Project Management


The above image, Goofy is also available as a Desktop Background

Today's song is I'm On Fire by Bruce Springsteen, released in 1984.

I recently listened to all these expertly produced project management podcasts. Even for readers who aren't primarily interested in project management themselves, can learn how to evaluate the companies they work for using the information contained in those sessions. I'm sure many readers will consider the gaps in their own organizations after listening and thinking about what they heard.

It's possible and probable that those gaps were already known, maybe even raised in meetings or via memos. I wrote plenty of memos to my management in my corporate years concerning gaps. Most of the time my memos were filed away without further action. I would refer to them when the fires ignited and management called upon me to emergency service to resolve another critical problem that might have been avoided through better planning. Those were my initiation years in project management way back when.

I bet some of my readers are currently firefighters. Maybe one day they will be project managers themselves? ;-)
