In 1969, the Project Management Institute (PMI) was founded. Project Management specialists were building large buildings, roads, bridges, some of the first computers, and lunar modules. AT&T telephone operators still plugged wires into boards to transfer calls. Paper memos slowly communicated work to be done. Multitasking was unheard of! The PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) established a standardized and control-focused approach to completing projects, in the same way ADDIE standardized the new field of training. 

Flash forward to 2014: Our work is filled with interruptions, un-ending work, dysfunctional multi-tasking, and highly-matrixed organizations. To be successful, we have to look at our project artifacts and tools in a new way. Join Lou Russell to learn about short-cuts that help “accidental” project managers organize and adapt to chaos.
