As we continue in the lockdown period, we all are learning to adapt to this new way of life. Although the usual life may seem to have slowed down in our world of high speed, nothing has really stopped. Everything is moving at its own pace and there is still a lot to appreciate.
Thanks to the virtual tools and technology that have made many things possible in this unprecedented period. The schools and universities are closed but learning continues. Families and friends may be separated but connection remain and love has not diminished. Communities may have been isolated but solidarity and compassion persist. We, the human beings, the most adaptable and intellectual species of the planet will not allow coronavirus to win. This phase of confinement will end and we will all come out stronger. In the meantime, we stay connected and keep learning new things & new skills.
Due to the current situation with coronavirus, PMI-Belgium, in cooperation with our event hosts, has decided to postpone all physical events for an unforeseen future. However, we do not want to lose contact with you all! Therefore, we have decided to start organising virtual meet-up events. Currently, our team is looking for a suitable format. We will come back to you via this medium very soon with an update and a calendar of events.
Risks exist in every project. We may have a prudent risk management system or we can ignore them: in both cases risks will occur, they don't really care what we think of them.
Risks are not so banal: it is not about we fail or we succeed. Risks are various and are numerous. For example, a minor risk may cause a delay of one day. But what if we face 10 of those minor risks? Our project would be far beyond the schedule.
2020 is not easy. We know it. Covid-19 hit the world with astonishment. No matter how bad, it will pass, and the surviving communities come out stronger. The world is changing drastically, especially after this crisis. Mindset and professions are also changing, and so the skills required keep evolving.
Project Managers, of all professionals, are used to navigating through different projects and different environments. Many of them already mix home working with self-employment and short term contracts so their flexibility and capacity to manage their daily professional and personal task is very high.
The book of Ellen Ernst Kossek and Brenda L. Lautsch called CEO of Me is a great resource about work-life patterns and an invitation for us to understand better our type of “flexstyle”.
When I started an online book club two weeks ago, I didn’t know what to expect. How many people will join? What book are we going to read? How often will we meet? How do we do the reviews? It turned out everything happened quite naturally. Five people joined. We agreed to experiment to see what would work well and what wouldn’t. And the first book we chose to read was the novel Sociocracy 3.0 by Jeff Cumps. So we started. Good enough for now, and safe enough to try.
