research to connect projects of all size

Change – it is all that we do…

I am on a mission of change. This website hosts my perspectives on change – and why I consider all intended change as a project.

We are all project orientated – intent on change. It is what makes the human condition unique. Every project we interface with, but fail to see, reveals risk – as conflicting goals.

What follows is an ongoing enquiry. Can our modelling of projects be linked, to better guide all scales of intended change?

Living without free will

Biology, behaviourism, control v | b | t This is a completely different argument of how behaviour can be addressed. It sits in conflict to the ordering of cause and effect I have reflected upon elsewhere. Visibility of this difference an important part of future assessment needs.

Show and tell

A trickster mask unpacked This is how I created the Trickster image that ends each of my blog entries. I also share some other work to emerge from the same learning journey this represents.

AimedContinue reading “Em-pathetic leadership”

Everyone fails

Every headline proves it The human condition gives us a choice. A means to weigh up options. A means to keep to our task or allow the constant distractions move us to the next. This is not unique. Any animal reacts to its external situation, if it is to survive to enjoy the next mealContinue reading “Everyone fails”

Crazy horse or smart ass?

Being more present requires us to be adaptable. Roles can be defined but just having a role is not the same as being a part. Be available to do the work, and invested in ensuring what is needed can be done. Be situationally aware, so able to show the shared achievement. not just the effort you put in.

No project is an island

A project as “Time-bound intended change“ I am attempting to find a way to link projects across a wider (the widest possible) spectrum of application.
