How do you go about managing your projects from a cafe?



Put all your projects on Project Web Central and get all project managers to connect to that server.Not once but at least once everyday!

You install the hardwares and the softwares but to make it successful, you must educate the people in project management and the use of IT for communication.



Project intranets will only work if people use it. Intranet is just like a knife- just a tool. Given to unskilled, nothing happens. However, a simple knife can turn into powerful weapon if it is given to McGyver.

Yesterday, I bought a book that I was looking for months. It will cost me around USD80 if I were to buy and fedex to KL from USA. But I was lucky to have to pay only RM 127 for the book at Kunikoniya. Lesson learnt: Just wait for a few months, then you can save a few hundreds bucks.if you can't wait, just buy-which I do many times!



It is entitled : Building Project Management Competency



Now, I have two PM books to read this month(April ,2003). Another one is Radical Project Management!

To-day I got a shock of my life when my friend told me that his company is doing multi-million ringgit project without a project report!

My senior or predeccesors do NOT have to learn all these stuff and yet they have completed most of the projects?



Now, I am writing a short speech to JKR 2nd PM Course.

My immediate answer : My grandmother did not go to school.She is almost 90 years old and still lives till to-day.

But then compare what kind of life she lives to my life who has been to school and UK for my degree.



Just wait and I will try to answer the questions.
