  • Project Management at the Speed of Thought

    Over the years we have engaged in many "thought experiments". These are experiments to test principles of project management, and their practical application. We came up with these experiments through talking with our customers, and drawing on our own experiences with running dozens of internal projects over the years.

    Project Management at the Speed of Thought

    You may not have heard of AgilePad, but it was one of our experiments that we launched last year. We launched it with little fanfare.

These roles have put me in a position to see which teams do well and which teams fail.

    Often, we get customers who are looking to Unfuddle as a tool to help solve their communication problems. I am proud to say that it can! But sometimes, teams fail even though they use good tools. Maybe you have the perfectly curated software development stack, the best developers, the end-all-be-all of project management methodologies. But something lacks.

  • The Four Primary Pieces of Project Management

    Getting immersed in big projects requires more than just hard work and elbow grease. For teams to come together and execute something that becomes more than the sum of its parts, it requires a certain dedication, commitment, and strategic vision that runs through every part and parcel of a project. And while project management solutions can help keep teams on task no matter where they may be, they need to address four critically important components to the project management ecosystem: detailed communication, deadlines and shifting priorities, delegation, and downtime.
