Go beyond project management techniques

As project managers we all want our projects to succeed. We want to make sure that we make steady progress and that we are always on track. That’s what our role and contribution is so it is natural at times for us to get obsessed with milestones and promised intermediate deliverables. When we do get task and milestone focused though, are we running the risk of missing the big picture of the overall results expected? Are new ways and approaches needed in the information age compared to the industrial era?

Moments of Pride

There are times in life when one is down due to underachievement, low performance, things not happening as per expectations and morale being low. This sometimes happens due to reasons not within one’s control. There are moments of frustration and one starts feeling that it is me against the world.

How to do SCP from one EC2 Instance to another EC2 Instance

Nowadays, many websites are being hosted on cloud (Amazon Web Services) instead of traditional dedicated/shared Linux servers. Programmers who are using "scp" command to copy data from one Linux server to other Linux server are now facing issues to use same "scp" command for two ec2 instances/servers of AWS. The main reason behind this is, while using "scp" command, it asks for password of the server where the data is being copied and with ec2 instances of AWS, we normally have .ppk files and not a password.

Focus on complete talent not just skills

Are all carpenters the same because they know how to use the same tools? What is the intangible that makes one person a carpenter and yet another person using the same tools a world class artist. Surely it was not the knowledge of the tool. Yet, we find that we in IT get obsessed with labeling, resourcing and planning our team almost purely on the basis of technical skills. Very often we hear, “we need a person with 4 years of experience to lead this .NET project.” Is the recipe for success really that simple? What may we be missing here and what is a better way to make people decisions?
