The first was an article on a nice quality management tool I use - Servqual/aka RATER. It was also my first Wikipedia entry. As project people we mostly deliver intangibles. And so taking a service provider approach to quality can help us keep our clients happy.
The second - Global Competency standards was about separating out basic skills and advanced competencies. I linked to an academic work proprosing tiering projects by complexity and identifying the different skill sets that each category requires.
As you can imagine - a small 8 week website development is a little bit different to a global supply chain project. And just as the applciations are miles apart, so are the skills needed to manage them.
While I look back and see that the quality of my writing has improved, I still think they are both intresting and relevant. Go take a look and tell me what you think.
