Trello

It’s a sweltering summer day in North Carolina in 2003, and a scrawny teenager is practicing shooting a basketball with his dad. The boy is pretty good at the sport, but no college coach takes him seriously as a basketball prospect. He’s too small, too weak, and shoots too unconventionally.

400 Seconds of Project Management

This is the art of concise presentations – or better known as PechaKucha – which first came about in 2003 in Tokyo (have a read about the background to it on the website). Imagine having 400 seconds to get across your point in project management. If there’s something you’re particularly passionate about – or even an expert in, could you limit yourself to 400 seconds? How about 20 images popping up behind you every 20 seconds to make sure you stay on flow?

Project Innovation and “Crossing the Chasm”

Tony Adams

Christensen (2003) talks about the difference between disruptive and sustaining innovation and argues that companies may fail when they encounter “the Investor’s Dilemma” If the company remains focused on platform initiatives and fails to recognize the disruptive potential within its business, it risks losing the potential market presence and revenue that can come with that. Adapted from Christensen, “The Innovator’s Dilemma” (2003). 2003).
