Three Project Management Myths You Should Ignore

There is no one-way route in project management.

The ideas and strategies you hold dear to your heart, might not mean a dime to someone else who is managing a project. This means that you should find a balance between what works and what the so-called experts had advised ‘us’ to follow.

Truly, it’s not an easy task to serve in multiple roles. When managing a project that requires extra thinking-through, you have to ditch myths and embrace practicable ideals.

Pre-Requisites for Delivering Your Strategy to Success

Your strategy for the year is set – now you have to deliver on your commitments. Research from PMI shows that nearly one in five businesses doesn’t have the capability to implement its strategic initiatives effectively.

Successful strategy implementation is important for gaining an advantage over competitors, cost reduction and a host of other things that help move your company forward through the year.

Four Leadership Qualities You Need To Stand Out

Do you have unique leadership qualities?

The purpose of being a leader is to lead a purposeful life and impact the same to others.
It doesn’t matter the size of your business, always remember that prospects and customers are expecting you to guide them: give professional advice, explain complicated issues and help them buy wisely.

The truth is that if you’re a leader and your thoughts, words, actions and management abilities are not recognized, it means that you have missed the point.

Leading and Managing: Two essential skills

I thought long and hard about the title of this article. I wanted to call it “Two essential skills for business leaders” but that didn’t sound right when it’s about managing as well. So I considered “Two essential skills for senior managers” but that didn’t include the leadership angle.

The problem is, we label ourselves as leaders or managers. There isn’t a term that covers both.

There should be.
