One of the most difficult challenges I have is project management. I have been studying leadership , project management, service oriented, and IEEE guidance books and articles looking for answers. I am reminded by leadership books that trust is the most important factor in any working relationship. This is defined by actions through character and competence. As I am developing strategies to tackle the workplace challenges I am constantly changing my approach to the problems. I realized that there is no “one” solution. The first approach is to have the team document tasking in a sharepoint portal. These tasks will not only show external team members what our team is doing but it will allow for our team to see their actions and document their work in an easy way. The next step will be to export tasking compiled by the week / month and filter it for analysis. In the next few weeks I will start to publish the results on the blog.
