Past Septembers

Sometimes we bloggers get very busy at work.

This is one of those times for me, but in order to keep the content flowing here are some of the posts I look back on and find interesting from this month in the past.

For your information, I started this blog back in 2005.  In September of 05 I was having my first thrust at blogging regularly.  The themes I was writing on at that time were quality and scheduling.

Two posts that I think are worth revisiting are;
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.
