Podcast: How to Avoid Project Management Failures

We explore new research with the author of “My Life is Failure -- 100 Things You Should Know to be a Successful Project Leader” so you can learn from the mistakes of others.

How can you be a more successful project manager? Jim Johnson’s book, “My Life is Failure -- 100 Things You Should Know to be a Successful Project Leader” is based on over a decade’s worth of data collected by The Standish Group through its CHAOS University unit.

Jim has looked at real-life IT environments and culled through over 50,000 completed IT projects since 1985 to figure out what went wrong and what you can do so you don’t repeat the mistakes of others.

We explore some of the biggest “gotchas” in project management with Jim, and discuss research that has come to light since the publication of his book.
