What Is Productive Laziness?

Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.’ Robert Heinlein (1907 – 1988)

By advocating being a ‘lazy’ project manager Peter does not intend that we should all do absolutely nothing.

Peter is not saying we should all sit around drinking coffee, reading a good book and engaging in idle gossip whilst watching the project hours go by and the non-delivered project milestones disappear over the horizon. That would obviously be plain stupid and would result in an extremely short career in project management, in fact probably a very short career full stop!

Lazy Does Not Mean “Stupid”

Peter just means that we should all adopt a more focused approach to project management and to exercise our efforts where it really matters, rather than rushing around like busy, busy bees involving ourselves in unimportant, non-critical activities that others can better address, or indeed that do not need addressing at all in some cases.

Provider:  TenStep Inc. (Rep 1774)

Much of the work that you do can be organized as a project. When the projects are large, they need to be managed with formal project management discipline.

But many projects are not large.

They are small work efforts that need to be organized and managed efficiently, but not with the full rigor and structure of formal project management discipline.

These are the projects of accountants, teachers, administrators and many others. These projects represent the vast majority of all work executed in businesses all over the world.

This webinar describes fundamental work management techniques and skills for these non-project management professionals.

Attendees will see how to understand the work that is requested, how to organize the work, how to manage the work and how to execute the work.

Note: This is the rescheduled November Book Club Q&A Closing Webinar – Project Management Simplified: A Step-by-Step Process

There are a number of structured approaches that guide the successful completion of projects in business environments. Project Management Simplified translates these processes and techniques such that non-project managers can easily use these proven approaches in a nonbusiness context for their own projects.

The Step-by-Step Process in the book removes technical jargon, the need for computer software and hardware, and complicated organizational environments, describing the essential project management processes in a simple, straightforward manner.

As you progress through the book, you connect the dots necessary to complete your personal projects. A sample project in the text and a case study in the appendices further illustrate the concepts explained in the text.

The author, Barbara Karten (LinkedIn profile) challenges you to select a project and, working along with the book, be the project manager and develop a project plan. By working with customers and funders of the project, defining the project, identifying how long it will take, and determining its cost, you will develop the expertise to define project goals and create a plan to reach them.

Organizations everywhere have been undergoing tremendous changes in the last two years.

A major challenge they are running into is how difficult change is to adapt to both emotionally and mentally.

Give your people the tools and attitudes to be “change ready” – a mental/emotional state in which they seek solutions, instead of blaming others.

They look for opportunities in the changes, and choose optimism. They vent their emotions in a helpful way and accept change more quickly.

Learning objectives:

  • Increased resilience to bounce back after the unexpected
  • Adapt more quickly to new environments
  • Sees opportunities in change instead of fighting, fleeing or freezing
  • Optimism rather than the blame game
  • Better health than when resisting change

Presenter: Bob Faw (LinkedIn profile) trainer and consultant CEG, has 25+ years of professional facilitation experience.
