Darryl Bachmeier Apr 26, 2019 Project-Management

In Project Management, communication management is one of the critical factors of any project. According to the PMBOK® guide, communication management includes all the processes necessary to ensure the generation, collection, distribution, storage and last disposal of project information, in the appropriate form and time. In short, the person in charge of the project has to ensure that all the interlocutors of his project or stakeholders own or have access, at the right time, to all the required information using the most appropriate and effective means. This is extremely relevant because poor management of communication and information in any project can increase the time that must be spent to communicate, distribute, share and access information, and may even produce the total failure of the project. In order for the person responsible for the project to have the necessary information at all times, he or she must interact with the members...

Darryl Bachmeier Apr 25, 2019 Project-Management

Currently, most of the strategic initiatives of organizations are materialized through projects.

The notion that we will be able to do more during the day is extremely seductive, and we will do anything to make us believe we will gain a little bit more from this scarce commodity. However, today it is known that the idea that you can do several things at once is a myth. The doctor in psychology Jim Taylor (a doctor himself, those with Ph.D. in the...

Darryl Bachmeier Apr 24, 2019 Project-Management

It is not just about dedicating more economic resources but to acquire the necessary knowledge, make a correct optimization of the time spent and have a management and coordination of our work teams. Without a good planning of time or tasks, the management of tasks ends up consuming too many resources, and what is even worse, wasting our time and the rest of the people that make up our team, causing even lack of motivation and involvement in the workforce of work.
