Sometimes I have a brainstorm session with friends/coworkers and it sticks with me. When that is the case I will sometimes start writing a post that grows on me as it progresses. These Brainstorm sessions I have with myself mostly will gather information from other sources around the web, and might contain best practices. But I don’t want to categorize the posts as best practices because I’m not sure about what the actual best practice is. Good examples of a Brainstorm posts are called The deal with Project Failure and What are workdays in Microsoft Project.
There is also a special kind of brainstorming I do, these are the About posts. Big, content rich articles about specific items or subjects related to Microsoft Project or Project Management.
But there’s sure to come more brainstorms in the future. I hope you like the content that’s already here. And if you are interested in doing a brainstorming session with me please let me know in one of the comments.
In this 14th installment of my “generative” AI series, I delve deep into the world of project management and the PMO. As the boundaries between technology and human expertise continue to blur, project managers are now embracing the power of Generative AI to enhance their decision-making process, streamline operations, and unlock innovative solutions.
Oh, and ChatGPT has a new super power!
I don’t know where the PM and the data scientist come in, but it is dream like, colorful and artistic for sure.
There are a number of “project” applications in the Microsoft landscape. The ones in the title aren’t even all there is. So, when I got this question from one of my readers I was interested to help out:
Let’s tackle this beast as my first article of 2023!
Project for the web is a Microsoft cloud-based solution that gets new features regularly, as you might know from my YouTube series on the topic. This blog series is about the Feedback portal that we can use to let Microsoft know which new features to include in the product.
This is the second update since the introduction post. I will briefly look at the progress on previously mentioned feature requests and I will take a look at two additional features that might be interesting for Project for the web.

Microsoft used to work with Uservoice to capture the needs and wishes of the community. I covered several Uservoice items in the blog. But in 2021 Microsoft switched to an internal Feedback portal for Project for the web. With the announcement, we are treated to a new way of providing feedback to the Product group at Redmond.
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.
Let’s start with a little disclaimer, the following article is a brainstorm experiment by my hand. There’s no real crystal ball involved. This article is an exploration on where the world of Project and Portfolio management is heading.
Obviously, any prediction of the future will change that future because we are preparing differently for it. This was excellently described in the first chapters of Homo Deus a book I’m currently reading (and yes the inspiration for writing this article).
But, because it won’t happen exactly like I describe it doesn’t mean at all that we should not dream about the future. Or write these kinds of articles. There might even be a smart Microsoft employee that reads the article and picks it up and makes it reality.
Just a warning: I couldn’t find/use a lot of pictures for this article. Just chew through the text please :-).
Hi Readers, Here’s another guest post for you to enjoy. It’s the third time for Ashley to join TPC. You might have seen her previous work on the top 5 trends of 2018 and 2019 for Project Management.
This time I’ve asked Ashley to look into Scaled Agile, as I believe it’s a great way to work with Agile and have a structure in place at the same time. So without taking to much time from you, here is Ashley again with
