In today’s episode of My TechDecisions Podcast, host and TD Managing Editor Jonathan Blackwood speaks with Bryan Payne, Project Management Professional, about some best practices for project management, some software involved with project management, and how technology decision makers should use project management principals in order to implement new technology projects.
Bryan Payne is a seasoned IT professional with over 20 years of domestic and international experience. He has demonstrated success managing software design, validation, and software life cycle management, with experience in acquisitions, divestitures and consolidations. As a certified PMP, combined with his experience in IT, there are few better to discuss technology implementation project management.
In this interview you’ll learn about the project management lifecycle – planning, scheduling, tracking, and communication. You’ll then learn about specific tools and software products that will help you manage each aspect of the lifecycle. Bryan draws on his experience as a PMP to discuss not only planning and scheduling, but also how to pivot when plans and schedules need to change throughout the project.
Listen to this episode if you’re interested in learning more about the project management lifecycle and the software involved. Keep in mind that just because your title isn’t “Project Manager” doesn’t mean that this information doesn’t pertain to you. Project management principals can be used in any capacity, and directly relate to the implementation of technology. You’d be doing yourself a disservice not to give it a listen.
