Repetitive Redundancy and the Search For New

24630505_7bacac7cdb_m

I’ve been reading a lot of new blogs lately. Not really sure what I’ve been looking for, but I feel like something is missing. I feel like I’ve been reading and writing about the same thing over and over (and over). So I’ve been surfing around reading a bunch and really good stuff in the […]

A Veterans Day Thank You

This post is a bit off topic from the norm but I wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You to anyone who’s ever served in the armed forces. For those of you outside the US, November 11 is Veterans Day and is also celebrated as Armistice Day / Remembrance Day in other parts […]

A Social Approach to Knowledge Management in Projects – A White Paper

I recently submitted a paper to be considered for an academic conference on the topic of IT Project Management. The conference uses a double-blind review process to review papers and provide feedback.  In this double blind-review, reviewer’s aren’t provided with author(s) information and author’s aren’t provided information about the reviewers. Good and fair process….and one […]

Are you keeping your eyes open?

Have you ever gotten so used to doing something that you stop thinking about how or why you’re doing it?  BTW – this is another one of my ‘linear thinking‘ posts. I’m sure there’s a scientific name for it but I’m too tired to look it up right now…sorry. How many of you are stuck […]

The importance of story

Stories and Storytelling

I love a good story. I love to read a good story and I love to create stories…although they may not always be “good.:) In fact, I love a good story so much that I’m researching the topic of stories and storytelling as a mechanism for knowledge capture & transfer within project teams.  See a […]

A milestone – 3 years old (not 4 like I thought!)

Update – My original post was titled “A milestone – 4 years old”. Apparently I can’t count   I started the blog in 2006 so it’s my blog’s THIRD birthday! I started this blog on July 14, 2006 with a blog post titled “The Strategic Use of Human Resources“. My first post was an excerpt […]

Time for a Mid Year Review

2009 is half over and its been a pretty good year so far. What’s transpired this year? In February, I put my consulting practice on hold to join the Boy Scouts of America full time after working with them for 1.5 years as a consultant.  Previous to starting full-time, I’d been leading the Sitecore Content […]

Seth Godin – You’re Boring

I read Seth Godin‘s post titled “You’re Boring” the other day and shrugged my shoulders.  OK Seth…most companies and products ARE boring…what’s new? Products have always been boring.  So have companies. I found myself bored with Seth after reading his “You’re Boring” post.  In the post, he writes: You don’t get unboring for free. Remarkable […]

Chris Brogan on Writing

I’m a big fan of writing and I’m always working on improving my writing. I read everything I can find about writing and am always on the lookout for new thoughts on how to improve my writing. I found an interesting take on the subject written by Chris Brogan titled “Cultivating a Writing Habit“.  Great […]

Resolutions for 2009

My wife just asked me what my resolutions were for 2009.  I normally don’t do ‘resolutions’ but the question, and the many blog posts about resolutions, started me thinking. What is it about the changing of the ‘year’ that gets people into the mindset of making resolutions to do things differently in the ‘new year’? […]
