What Goes Around...

In the 80s and later in the 90s, we had a stupid organization model, called a matrix. The idea behind this is that everyone should have two managers (excepting the top executives themselves, of course), and that they should cooperate and coordinate with the best interest of the company foremost in their minds. This is of course bullshit, as any person who have met a bunch of ambitious mid-managers or defensive, semi-competent, moronic mid-managers, that will do anything to survive, can testify to. People work for their self-interest first and the company second, and if you don't understand that, you shouldn't be in management. Fortunately, the survivorship of the CEOs that tried to implement these abonominations was on average 30 months, even though it usually was painful months.

Project Management or Rather the Lack of It

What is really irritating as an old PM is the lack of PM that exists in many organisations. A lot of PL/PM is young people that has been promoted to it nearly directly after school and is still learning what to do, after having worked 5-10 years in the role. Not very successful at all times.
