Out on a limb
A little context of why this blog and website have been launched.
Mental health demanded I revisit my life goals in 2019. These blogs will reflect a life flipped upside down which, as it turned out, was actually the right way up. My midlife reset was probably overdue. It lead me to take in a different view. I now sit more comfortably out on a limb.
This blog space will touch upon this journey, but this is mostly about projects. I am now proud to share my story. The transformation was hard won and life changing. It has brought my career focus within project risk into new context. It has created an academic interest in project theory, people management and leadership, qualitative and quantitative analytical methods. I had to learn more about myself, via psychology and cognitive science. Serendipity has brought these subjects into one view. This perspective is now offered to you.
This blog will be contextualised around projects. It will include modelling from psychology, cognitive science, up-to-date thinking from the worlds of project management, risk and critical control, qualitative and quantitative analytics, and frameworks of governance. I will attempt to explain all as projects. Internal projects of self. External projects of our collective selves.
