meets Bentzy Goldman, The Project Team Performance Guy
In this episode we speak to Bentzy Goldman,. Bentzy is CEO of Perflo, whose mission is to "Help project teams be more successful using cutting edge research and technology.".  He has worked in various areas of software startups as well as consulted organizations on business strategy. He is energized by finding better ways of doing things and the one that excites him most is how we work. Prior to starting Perflo, the founders had worked in various companies and across multiple industries, experiencing a variety of both great, and not so great managers, as well as worked in both low and high performing teams, and realized there were two things blocking everyone from being on the same page. Communication and incentives. Communication is broken in a lot of projects and we wanted to find a way technology could help us improve it. Incentives are another key reason why team alignment and project cohesion is negatively affected. Individual goals and individual rewards are the status quo, yet everyone works in teams, it doesn’t make sense? Many things bothered us about team management, performance and the way projects are managed. So we began to work with the experts and brought together proven methods to create a new formula for project success. We’re proud of what Perflo has turned into and we will continue to innovate in the space as well as act on the feedback from our customers and users. We hope to revolutionize the way teams execute projects around the world. Not for the sake of a revolution, for the sake of going to work on a Monday morning with a smile. :) Web: https://www.perflo.co/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/bentzygoldman/ I mentioned a couple of things in my news section My shop: https://www.nigelcreaser.com/p/sunday-lunch-shop.html My fundraising page: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/NigelCreasersvirtualLondon2021

meets Craig Mackay, The AI Guy (Part 2)
Craig Mackay, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Sharktower AI With over 20 years of delivering projects and seeing too many failures, Craig is obsessed with tackling the waste in projects. Craig has spent his whole career delivering change; whether it be lean process efficiency, people change, software solutions, new product propositions or large scale technology transformations. Throughout this, he has been continually frustrated by the wasted effort (and investment) in project delivery.  Whether it is caused by misaligned incentives, lack of outcome clarity, a "deliver regardless" mindset, working to governance milestones or siloed manual subjective reporting - the failure rate in projects is still too high. Too many projects are still managed by slide decks, sticky notes and gut instinct.  He believes businesses can make better decisions and ultimately make the world a better place. He believes project delivery can be done better if we learn from our mistakes. He believes people could be using their time more effectively if aligned on outcomes. He knows the answer is the use of data to do this. It is time to make change delivery more data-driven. About Sharktower AI - software designed to remove waste and support enterprise agility so your business can make the most of change investment and outcomes. The aim isn’t to replace Project Managers, but to recreate at scale the insight that comes from working in smaller project team.

It was during her time at Hewlett Packard, recruiting for a project office of 20+ members that Lindsay came face to face with the issues of recruiting good project management professionals.  When the opportunity came along to set up her own business she knew there was definitely a place in the UK recruitment market for a recruitment agency that really understood its subject matter.  Lindsay manages the marketing and sales function at Arras People today; in addition, she still occasionally recruits for PMO roles (because she can’t resist!) and provides careers clinics for PMO professionals.

meets The Lazy Project Manager
Peter Taylor, The Lazy Project Manager (www.thelazyprojectmanager.com) kindly included a little promo for Project Management: The Sketches in his latest podcast. So I thought I would share his cast with you. I hope you enjoy it and remember if you have not got your copy of Project Management: The Sketches you can now get it on Kindle, Kobo, Apple Books and shortly Google Books. I would also recommend getting into Peter's back catalogue of books and podcasts, I am sure will find them entertaining and informative.
