Nice piece of information. I am surprised to see the criticism in comments. We should appreciate the effort of someone.
PM Perspective (4 months ago)
Hi Shahzad.  I'm glad you liked the information. When I decided to put stuff out on YouTube, I totally expected and appreciate all kinds of criticisms - it's the only way to get better.  I find that the key is to not take it personal and know which feedback to pay attention to.

Site is down :(
PM Perspective (7 months ago)
Sorry Andrea. I took the site down a couple of years ago when I realized I didn't have the time to maintain the community that was building around it. However, I'm happy to report that PM Perspective is coming back! Check out the announcement on the PM Perspective Channel home page. I've got lots of cool stuff prepared in the coming weeks and the site should be back up and running soon.

Its getting boring too slow
PM Perspective (7 months ago)
Thanks for the feedback Poorav. Everyone likes a different presentation speed. It can be hard to find a speed that pleases everyone. Getting feedback like this is key to getting it right though! Thanks again.

Brilliant video. To the point and discuss what real project management is all about. Thank you for taking the time to make such a video. I have been saying the same message for over 30 years, few listened and many are stuck in tools, methodologies, inputs/outputs/processes, etc. A true project manager is one who maneuver through the project and the politics of the company, manage the stakeholders, facilitate decisions, pro-actively manage issues, get involved in business case and funding (if possible), manage vendors (many just hire vendors and let them do whatever, and they only get status of work!!!), and truly own the project and its outcome.

PM Perspective ... thank you my friend. Great minds think alike. Hit me up on LinkedIn when you get a minute. My profile is Amro Elakkad, PMP, SPL, SSGB, MSc. Take care and be well.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your comment AA! Thank you so much. Looks like we have had similar experiences. I think there's a real opportunity out there for any new PM's who condition themselves to be outcome focused from the start. I think you're going to like what I have to say in the video I have scheduled for this Friday.

I'm Project Manager and I don't believe much on those Agile, Scrum and all those methodologies. I just focus on the goal of each projects. You don't need a fixed methodology. Most of the time, common sense is enough..

i for one believe experience is the best. however, just as in cisco certifications, HR's of companies use the certification as a short listing tool.

Hi MariaRus.USA .. just saw your comment and was wondering why no one helped you .. anyway, try to start with this book "Principles of Project Management" by John R. Adam, ISBN: 1-880410-30-3 ... its a 1996 book, but the information in it is very much relevant and it helped me personally back in the time ... hope this helps .. if you need more help let me know your email address and i will connect with you on LinkedIn .. take care

Hello, do you know what book would be a good one to read for some one that is just trying to get into the field with out a formal education? I am currently trying to figure out what steps do i need to take to get into the project management. What would you recommend to someone just starting out? Thank you.

this is a much clear video about PM
bomsbravo (2 years ago)
Don't choose project management as a career. It is just too risky. Just a pain with no gain. And the worst part is it just a fancy name for an office assistant. Everyone else in the team is getting paid more than a PM. It is the truth. PM is not a real manager. Just a facilitator for the high paid nerds who work in the team.

+bomsbravo in the apartment industry, a pm is the one who is in charge of overseeing and coordinating an entire project. They are usually the ones who hire and fire contractors. Im not sure what the pay for a pm is, in the industry you are familiar with, but in the construction/apartment industry it ranges from 90-120k annually with about 20% bonus. Although pm generally do report to someone, they also lead and direct the work of others.
bomsbravo (2 years ago)
Thank you very much for your response. I come from an IT background and honestly i don't have a very good idea about other industries. But in IT field, a PM is just an administrative role which doesn't have much control of anything other than boring paperwork. And the worst part is the inequality of the payment. Software engineers get a really higher salary than an any PM. So please explain us about the other fields and the situation out there. Thanks again!
PM Perspective (2 years ago)
Thank you bomsbravo, for your comment. You bring up a very good point. Yes, sometimes PM's are treated like glorified assistants; relegated to filling in templates, booking meetings and taking minutes. I've seen this happen more times than I care to admit. But then there are also PM's who are highly valued as skilled leaders. These valued PM's are the first names that come to the executive's minds when they have a problem to solve or a new goal to achieve. I've seem both undervalued PM's and the valued ones working side by side, often within the same organization so I'm not sure we can say its systemic or a cultural thing. Why some PM's are valued leaders and others aren't would be an interesting topic for exploration, and perhaps another video...

Was so frustrated since week about certain points, watched your two videos, they are simple to understand and importantly precise and to the point. Thank you
A very good video. Well put together and delivered.

I think on of the hard things about managing a project is to keep people motivated throughout the journey . I have noticed that some people get very excited at the start and they tend to lose that excitement when things get complicated or take longer that they were expected which sadly will affect the outcome of the project ..

Valuable video , now i can starts my projects properly , and i love this background music, if you don't mind can you tell me where to get it?
Andrea Antonel (3 years ago)
Very helpful. Due to huge guidelines as pmbok, required to achieve competence certification, you risk to loose focus on the real thing. Processes should be tools to help PMs and not (as stated in the exams dynamics) mandatory steps. thanks!

like so many Neuvo , Trendy things today, PM terminology, is basically old fashioned, applied logic and common sense, via a Spin Doctor!, still  I earn TWICE my old salary using all this hip -power language, it really does impress the ignorant ... and Jason, the video was well put together 10/10
