On Nov, 2012, Dave Berry spoke at the applied project management forum, which is held by the Naveen Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. Looking at troubled/red projects, Abyss Program Management would like to pose the question: “Aren’t these all variations of the same project?” Is it deja vue all over again? UTD has produced a multi-media presentation (about 45 minutes long) with a Q&A session (about 30 minutes). You can access this at our website at: http://ow.ly/jgpjQ.

We recently finished “Schedule Estimation: Politics, Science, or Art? part 2″. We have multiple flaws in the tools and techniques available. All err on the side of optimism, producing optimistic or even unachievable schedules. This part 2 provides pragmatic consideration to these scheduling pitfalls. You can download Schedule Estimation: Politics, Science, or Art? Part 2 from this site. We hope you enjoy this article and we encourage thought provoking debate on this blog and what should be done about these problems.
