Last Saturday, May 17th, I held a day-long Commitment-Based Project Management (CBPM) workshop in
It is obvious to me that theres a need, a desire for an easier and more effective way to manage projects. Life as a PM is challenging enough without adding all of the details and paperwork that sometimes we think we have to deal with (or someone insists we have to deal with it!)
CBPM handles a lot of the details by putting the responsibility where it belongs: with the people doing the work. By empowering the team and trusting them but having the necessary verification tools (i.e., deliverables matrix and PAC) a PM can easily monitor a project and be successful without being overwhelmed and overloaded with details.
This was the third workshop Ive run (the two prior ones were at Symantec). Im working on scheduling future ones.
