Learn how to be a true leader. To succeed or fail based on your own decisions, your own choices, while leading teams to create new products, services and results.
Scope is the #1 focus, schedule is #2 and costs are #3 in the world of True Project Management. You either need the result of what you are planning or you are simply wasting your time and money. 90 of projects that fail, do so purely because of a lack of a solid scope, lack of attention on that scope, and distractions that create scope creep or destroy yours and your teams motivation to continue.

Areas of Expertise
I am sure some of you are in the middle of a project that feels like it is not moving forward, not getting done, failing. The best way to fix it, the best approach to saving projects from failure is to focus on the scope of the project.
I have found 8 primary reasons that projects fail. I have created a program to help my customers solve these 8 problems and save failing projects. I have never run into a failing project that did not get fixed by applying one or more of these solutions.
The question of who makes a better project manager; the person who is a subject matter expert and becomes a professional project manager, or the professional project manager who has limited functional experience in the product of the project?
I have always answered that the professional project manager with limited functional experience in the product of the project makes the best project manager. She will take nothing for granted, her assumptions will be clear, and she will have no preconceived notions of scope, time or costs. She will figure it all out using effective project management tools, techniques and processes. She can focus on inspiration and leadership of her team and not be pulled down into the weeds of minute details of specific product requirements.
