I would also like to comment on why I have chosen to title my blog "Project Lifestyle".
Traditional project management techniques, methods and models are frequently based on an underlying assumption that projects are infrequent, non-routine activities to achieve specific goals.
Today's reality, however, is quite different.
Multiple, overlapping projects are a fact of life.
No longer just the preserve of IT people and Engineers, a wide range of management initiatives are now executed as projects or programs.
One could say that many organizations have adopted projects as a lifestyle. The worrying thing, however, is that many of these same organizations are blissfully unaware of this sea change in how they get things done.
Project management skills are not seen as valuable.
Many inter-dependent projects are still run separately with no unifying foundations or processes.
So my blog will examine what new thinking or techniques are available to improve the quality of life for you and your colleagues where projects have become a lifestyle choice for your organization.
