There is no doubt about it, it’s been an unprecedented couple of weeks for the UK and globally with the outbreak and reaction to COVID-19. As project people, we’re hard-wired to try and bring order from chaos but even this is something that we’re struggling to manage – there’s just so much uncertainty. In this week, many project practitioners are adjusting to working from home – some for the first time, others that have only ever worked at home on a Friday.

Covid-19: Business as Usual at Arras People

Like most other organisations Arras People are adapting to the new world brought about by the reaction to coronavirus. Naturally the health of our fellow citizens is at the top of the list of concerns at this moment in time and nearer to home we are dealing with self-isolations for a variety of reasons, whilst some of the team (for the time being?) remain in the office. Fortunately, the Arras way has from day one back in 2002, embraced the call “do it from anywhere” so other than not having a full roster on the office, we are pretty much [...]

Project Management Q&A: What’s the Best Way to Promote My Knowledge and Career Brand

What’s the best way to promote my knowledge and career brand without alienating my organization and team members? You’re wanting to share your knowledge and experiences with the wider project management community and part of that is about where you’ve gained that knowledge and experience. Sharing that should only be perceived as a good thing for the organisation you work for, after all, it’s also demonstrating to the wider community that this organisation is also doing good things worth talking about.

Rebuilding Your Confidence After Project Failure

I’ve just left a six-month contract for a project which ended up in a failure for all sorts of reasons. It has really knocked my confidence. How can I start to get over this and get back out there?

I guess it could also be called your own ‘lessons learnt’ as we often refer to it in project management speak. It’s easy to fall down the [...]
