Social Project Management

Bas de Baar points us to a presentation on Social Project Management. Leisa Reiche presents her ideas on a new philosophy on project management with the focus on people.

Big picture; projects are run by people and more attention needs to be paid to them in order to deliver effective projects.

Leisa’s views are that this is a new approach to project management and is a shift away from large scale Gantt chart driven projects. This is where I disagree. No matter how large, small, traditional or innovative a project is it is always important to pay attention to the people.

Take a look at the presentation and if you have views maybe you’ll share them with us.
