What Did You Learn Last Year?

What's something specific you've learned in the last 12 months that you either didn't know before then or you had to re-learn it? That's a question I asked some of my favorite continual learners--friends and colleagues who are committed to developing their abilities.

In this episode you'll hear from:

PPP 125 | Why Project Managers Who Learn Faster Beat Those Who Know More, with guest Liz Wiseman

Total Duration 44:58

Download episode 125

Expert Judgment

In the Project Management Body of Knowledge--the PMBOK® Guide--there's a recurring tool and technique entitled Expert Judgment. How can you develop a more effective project charter? Come up with more accurate cost and time estimates? Identify risks? Project Management Institute (PMI) says we should use expert judgment.

Their point is that you can develop better plans and estimates if you tap into the wisdom of those with established expertise. Makes sense, right?

Put Your Rookie On

My guest today is Liz Wiseman, author of Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing in the New Game of Work. Liz suggests there are times when having a rookie mindset trumps expert judgment.

Give Me a Call!

Please e-mail me (show [AT] PeopleAndProjectsPodcast [DOT] com or leave a message on our Listener Feedback Line (847-550-3747), letting me know what you think about this conversation with Liz. What questions do you have? I look forward to hearing from you!

PPP 124 | How Adam Smith Can Make You a Better Project Manager, with guest Russ Roberts

Adam Smith, Project Manager

If you studied economics at some point you most likely learned about Adam Smith. He's often revered as the Father of Modern Economics, but could it be that project managers could learn more than economics from Adam Smith? Is it possible that his lesser known book The Theory of Moral Sentiments, published in 1759, could help us become better project managers and leaders?

My guest today is Russ Roberts, author of How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life: An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness. I'm a big fan of Russ' EconTalk podcast, and I think you're going to find his new book about Adam Smith very intriguing!

Please e-mail me (show [AT] PeopleAndProjectsPodcast [DOT] com or leave a message on our Listener Feedback Line (847-550-3747), letting me know what you think about this conversation with Russ. How do you implement these ideas? What questions do you have? I look forward to hearing from you!
