Get back up again…


Does it feel sometimes that as you practice Project Management there are occasions when you come up against an ‘immoveable object’ and you feel knocked down in the face of common sense and best practice. It is a wake up call that what we see as the right thing to do isn’t seen the same way by others and that their opinions are shaped by their own experience, knowledge, ego, how they are feeling that day etc. So what do you do in the face of this?

An experienced Project Manager gets back up again, analyzes the situation and uses their ‘tool box’ to establish another approach. This requires a certain amount of taking steps back, a large number of deep breaths (without passing out :)), talking with colleagues and establishing a new path forward. We must always remember that there is more than one way to solve issues and to work around road blocks


About chriscashell

I have been working in IT for most industries during my career and delivering change through solutions combining process re-engineering and software systems. This has involved taking a disparate group of people to form project teams and setting out on a mission to change the business and drive it forward to meet compelling goals. Building and being part of a successful team is a great experience and seeing organizations and individuals embrace change is a rewarding experience. I want to share my insights into those experiences and thoughts and find out what others believe can make change fun and enjoyable.
