Project Management for You with Geoff Crane (@papercutpm)

October 17, 2014

_podcastTemplateWelcome to the fifteenth episode of the Project Management for You series!

This series will run every weekday, for 4 weeks. Get ready for a ton of great conversations around Project Management principles, ideas, tools, and techniques.

Today I bring my friend Geoff Crane on to the show to get his take on Project Management.

We will cover:

  • How would you define Project Management to the lay person?
  • What is the least people need to know about Project Management to start on the path of getting things done?
  • What are the stages of bringing an idea to reality?
  • If you could recommend one technique from the PM world to the masses, what would it be and where can we learn it
  • Managing projects often means working with other people. What’s the best way to know when and what to delegate, and to compel people to collaborate on a project?
  • What are some tips for those who want to learn and use project management to get things done?

Geoff Crane is a former senior project portfolio manager who has ties to some of the world’s largest banks and professional services firms.

A staunch believer in the value of soft skills over hard skills, he has returned to university to pursue a doctorate in clinical psychology. Unable to stay away from the action, though (or take himself too seriously), Geoff continues to help aspiring executives organize their project work and is an adjunct professor of Project Management at Durham College in Ontario, Canada.

As this podcast series “airs,” I am also running a Kickstarter campaign to help me write and publish my first book, Project Management for You.

To visit the campaign, click here.

If you believe my podcasts have brought you value, I would like to ask you to consider being a backer of this campaign.

As with every Kickstarter campaign, if the goal fund is not met, then no fund is released… It’s all or nothing!

I have put a lot of effort into this project, and I would love for you to participate as a backer.

Thanks in advance!
