meets Adrian Pyne, The Agile Beyond IT Guy (Part 2)
This week I have part two of my chat with Adrian Pyne, The Agile Beyond IT Guy. Adrian has two impressive track records: Delivery & Professional.  Delivery  30 years plus led or rescued Change programmes in many sectors (see below), adapting best practice successfully, with a focus on Agility since 2010 . The design, build & leading project, programme and portfolio management (P3) capability for organisations, and Professional Services.  Adrian is currently collaborating on [1] Agile Leadership & Project Management [2] Organisation Project Management (OPM), i.e. helping organisations create an environment to maxismise value from projects [3] P3 capability development and Sponsorship coaching  Professional  Adrian has been at the forefront of the evolution of programme and portfolio management, e.g. APM BoK 6 lead author. A frequent conference speaker and blogger, and co-author of The Gower Handbook of Programme Management, and of APM guides on Agile Governance & Assurance.  He says: “Despite great developments in best practice over the last 30 years, around 70% of change still fails, wasting huge investment. There are two main reasons; firstly, many organisations seem unable to address that most difficult success factor – people. There is so much potential for work in this area, integrating people based aspects with the business process and technology. Secondly, working at the organisational level to ensure that the landscape around projects helps them THRIVE and not just SURVIVE, or worse, FAIL.” Links https://www.linkedin.com/in/apyne/ https://amzn.to/3trpnPy Support the Show www.nigelcreaser.com/shop

meets Andrew Bull, The Monstrous Teams Guy (Part 2)
meets Andrew Bull, The Monstrous Teams Guy (Part 2)
This week I have part one of my chat with Andrew Bull, The Monstrous Teams Guy Andrew Bull is on a mission to help entrepreneurs and teams escape gravity and elevate performance in business and life. Known as the Interstellar Strategist, Bull is adept at identifying ways to elevate team and business performance. Whether on his podcasts or speaking at live events, Bull inspires people to have courage, own their future, and take action. Bull started his career in the UK film industry, where he helped the biggest leaders realise their visions for exciting film and advertising projects (including Harry Potter, Moulin Rouge, 300, Sony, Volvo, Philips). After 18 years of working in the film business, Andrew found himself at a crossroads. Whilst he was materially satisfied, and the work was interesting (travelling the world and meeting different people), he lacked time and freedom for loved ones and hobbies. So in 2016, Bull started his business so he could “own his future” and achieve a better work/life balance. Whilst growing his business, Bull has made plenty of mistakes and suffered brutal lessons. And although he found these lessons hard to suffer in the short-term, in the long-term he’s found them incredibly valuable. They’ve helped Bull grow and elevate his performance. They’ve helped him become a better coach, a better father, and a better person. These lessons also helped Bull discover the truth about a big question: What really drives business performance? The team. If the team isn’t performing at the right level, a business can have the best marketing/sales/product in the world and still struggle to achieve its goals. Even worse, when a team is underperforming, the leader and team have to work more and stress more. And they get sucked into business black holes that consume their time and freedom. Bull wasn’t happy with this situation and did something about it. He created InterstellarWay.Life, a coaching solution that helps leaders and their teams defy gravity and elevate performance in business and life. InterstellarWay.Life offers workshops and team accelerators that help teams overcome the challenges of our Brave New World. In 2022 published Andrew Bull published his first book called Monsters of Team Performance. A book that gives leaders a fast way to elevate their team’s motivation, culture, teamwork, innovation, and wellbeing. Bull is also the host of the popular and highly-rated podcast, the Interstellar Business Show, where he connects technology leaders (CEOs, executives) with the best business ideas and leadership stories. When he’s not busy helping leaders elevate their teams, Bull loves spending time with his family and friends.

meets Victoria Mckenna, The Fashionable Project Manager (Part 2)
Born in the 80’s, Victoria McKenna was quite a naughty child, very artistic and quite sensitive. She never actually ‘knew’ what she wanted from life for a very long time, not until 2014 anyway. From leaving university, she followed a path into the world of Telecoms sales, which was the start of a long, enjoyable career, finishing up as a Project Manager, which she loved.   As a young adult, for years she dreamt and spoke of designing clothes for women but didn’t have the faith to bring it to fruition. She learnt how to power dress in a corporate world and became obsessed with waistcoats (which she still is to this day) and looking serious, but with an edge.   In 2014, life changed when after a period of stress, she had a stroke. Life stopped, she lost her career and it took a total of two years to properly recover, with heart surgery thrown in. If ever there is a time to take a long hard look at yourself, it is during a period of enforced downtime and when there’s no certainty you’ll pull through. But no time for sympathy, because it was then that she realised she had been given a second chance. Life was still upside down with divorce and a lot of upheaval going on, but this whole period was the making of her.  So, the brand was born. she registered the name and started the journey.   https://www.victoriajanemckenna.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/vickymckennapm/

Garland Coulson, aka Captain Time (Part 2)
This episode I have the second part of my interview with Garland Coulson, aka Captain Time. Garland has spent over 25 years mastering time management. At first, he was determined to learn time management for his own career, but soon found himself helping others wherever he worked. Now he is known as “Captain Time, a time management speaker, trainer and coach, helping thousands of people get more done in less time. He calls time management the “missing” skill they don’t teach in school or university. No matter how brilliant or talented you are, if you always running out of time, you can’t apply your skills to their fullest TIME MANAGEMENT COACH Why Hasn’t Your Time Management Problem Been Solved? You’ve probably tried to solve your time problem. You worked extra hours, but it just burned you out. You might have read a time management book or taken a workshop. They might have helped a bit in the beginning but the improvement likely didn’t stick because when you got busy, you tended to fall back into the same old habits. Those same old habits that don’t work. So how do you make real, LASTING change in how you work? He is also the author of the Amazon bestseller, “Stop Wasting Time: End Procrastination in 5 Weeks with Proven Productivity Techniques.” He created this book to provide a low budget, easy way for people to get help. If you are struggling with procrastination, this is the book for you.

Meets Gary Lloyd, The Gardner, Not The Mechanic! Part 2
In this episode, we have part 1 of my interview with Gary Lloyd, The Gardner, Not The Mechanic! Gary Lloyd helps organisations make sustainable change, by asking them to think and act like gardeners, not mechanics. It's an analogy that leverages familiar gardening concepts and practices that effectively combine: Systems Thinking, Behavioural Science, Design Thinking and Lean Project Management (which don't usually mention or talk about explicitly, to avoid off-putting concepts and jargon). Since 1994, when he managed his first large IT-enabled change programme in retail banking, he has directed and consulted in numerous large-scale programmes and projects that have delivered tens of millions of pounds of business value, primarily, but not exclusively, in financial markets and banking organisations. In addition to his work in organisational change, for the least ten years, he have been a member of the Warwick Business School Executive Coaching Panel, and a steering committee member for the school's award winning Mentoring Programme, helping senior and mid-level executives to achieve success. The mentoring programme has 240 mentors and has mentored over 1,000 mentees since 2009, providing him with a unique window on the world of work. He believes that today's organisations are more like ecosystems than machines. Sustainable change, therefore, is more likely to succeed if we approach change as a gardener, rather than a mechanic. Success depends on recognising and embracing unpredictability, not pretending it doesn't exist. He is the author of two books: Gardeners Not Mechanics: How to cultivate change at work and Business Leadership for IT Projects Web: www.gardenersnotmechanics.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/garyjohnlloyd/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/notmechanics Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gardenersnotmechanics Stuff Nige mentioned NEW BOOK Project Manager Productivity Hacks: https://amzn.to/3GBTusK

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

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.

In this episode I have a chat with Lindsay Scott, The PMO Mob Collector. Lindsay Scott co-founded Arras People in 2002 following a career at Esso and Hewlett Packard. Following her graduation from Manchester University, Lindsay went onto work within the recruitment arm of Esso before leaving to join Hewlett Packard. At Hewlett Packard, she worked within the professional services consulting division, first as a Project Co-ordinator and then the Project Office Manager for the division. 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. Lindsay also carries out speaking engagements on project management careers topics and can be contacted through Arras People for more information.  For more information about Lindsay take a look at the following links: Website:: arraspeople.co.uk or pmoflashmob.org Linkedin: www.linkedin.com/in/pmolindsay Twitter: www.twitter.com/arraspeople Blog: arraspeople.co.uk/camel-blog Ruth Pearce has launched her audiobook of Be a Project Motivator: Unlock the Secrets of Strengths-Based Project Management , get your copy below. if you don't have audible click the audible signup link first To get your copy of Project Management: The Sketches, a FREE kindle copy of When I Were a Project Manager or a paperback version click the relevant link below.

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.

Episode Minus 1 (Only listen for Nostalgia)
Episode Minus 1 (Only listen for Nostalgia)
Back in 2017,  I started publishing the podast with small snippet episodes and laying around with the 12 days of project, I had removed them recently but decided to consolidate them into one episode to keep the history of my podcasting alive. If you want the real quality content I suggest you jump along to Episode 1 with Peter Taylor. Thanks Nige
