Unexpected Value

I have seen many towns destroyed, but nowhere have I been faced with such destruction.
--U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower

  Last night we headed to Warsaw's Old Town. As I looked around, it seems absolutely incredible it's the same city that was bombed to near oblivion during the war. The story goes the city was painstakingly recreated by a team relying on photographs and local records. And although they may not have called themselves project managers, they clearly relied on the discipline.

And that trend continues today. All around the world, companies and organizations rely on project management to achieve results even if they don't call it by its proper name. The August cover story of PM Network takes a look at five trailblazers bringing project management into new sectors--ranging from a cafe in Brazil to a church in the United States. In many cases, they may stumble on the profession. In others, someone might bring it in with them. And then they start seeing the payoff.

Even I'm starting to feel like a project manager. Like any project, our live feed of the Researching the Value of Project Management presentation relies on our team's ability to meet deadlines. And so far, so good. We've set up a studio of sorts for interviews, tested out the equipment and we have a rehearsal set for this afternoon. Reading all those PM Network features is definitely helping.
