Do you know that almost 50% of the project management companies close within the first three years of operations? Running out of project budget & time, or lack of involvement from the team, are some of the most common reasons behind it.
It is evident how even minor mistakes can cost dollars to projects and project management organizations. These mistakes can lead to delays, budget mismanagement, and in some cases, substantial financial losses too.
This article will discuss 7 common project management mistakes that project managers make and advise how to avoid them.
I know I mentioned in blog posts and newsletters that I would be moving more towards the Power Platform . So, it might come as a surprise to see a post (after so long) about Project Management on the blog.
But actually, it’s still very close to my goal of more Power Platform AND my goal to keep writing about project and project management.
A small service announcement. For a while now I have had a OneDrive file share location. This file share was used to share content I used in my articles. Since 2018 I also have a YouTube channel. Originally the blog and the YouTube channel had separate newsletters and separate membership file shares.
Four years ago I published the 3 favorite Microsoft Project reports post. And for the second year in a row it’s the most visited post on TPC. By far! And with two thousand views already this year, I’m expecting another clear winner this year (runner up “About percent complete” is good for almost half that amount of views).
It’s difficult to recreate good “ever green” content, it’s clear that the article has everything people look for. Maybe it’s the list of actions required for a successful report in Microsoft Project. Or maybe it’s because the article describes 3 reports I like the best.
Save to say I wanted to create a follow up article. This time I’m expanding my view to the cloud. More specifically, the Microsoft project management cloud solutions.
Hi Reader, Welcome to a massively overdue topic on The Project Corner! Here is another Product review. This time we are taking a look at the PMP Deep Dive online training course from the Versatile company. And stick around till the end, because I managed to get you a discount :-).
You might be thinking “hold on Erik is a Project blogger, what’s going on here?!”. And yes you are right, normally I would write about Project and Portfolio management, Power BI or Microsoft’s host of other cool applications (such as Teams and the combo with Project Online).
But, you must also agree with me that these aren’t normal circumstances anymore right?
The Netherlands is currently hit with closed schools, musea and other measures. We aren’t on complete lockdown yet, but who knows this might happen in the coming days.
That’s why I wrote this article to help raise awareness on the Covid-19 pandamic and share some reports and articles created by (hopefully) way smarter people then me.
Hi reader, I was recently asked by one of my clients to give them an exact number of all the files that were in the Project Online environment. The reason behind it was that the organisation wants to use Microsoft Teams to store all project related files instead of the classic Project Sites.
This is of course music to my ears! I get to play around with Power BI and the client is moving towards a future where Teams is available to all their teammembers. You might remember my previous video in which I share how to connect Teams with Project Online.
In this article I’ll share with you the steps I took to create this report. Then, at the end of the article I’ll share the video on how to do it. And as a final offer, I’ll give you the template I created so that you can do it even faster yourselves. Sounds goud? Here we go!
