Blasts from the Past - 9/10-9/16 -- From this week in 2003, Predicting Uncertain Futures, using familiar weather maps as a metaphor. (One of my favorite posts.)
Looking into the future, we move from points in time to ranges of time within which we can expect completion of a project. The further out we look -- the more work subject to uncertainty that remains -- the wider the range of promises needs to be. As the leading edge of the projected path of the storm starts touching land, that could relate to having the maximum of the range of project promise exceeding the desired due date.
In 2004, the series on Multi-Project mangement continued.
And last year, I was exploring David Allen's process for Getting Things Done. (Still working on making it work for me.)
