Project-Based Performance Appraisals
How-To Course What gets measured gets done. So if your cross-functional team members know that their next promotion, their raise, their annual review will be judged based entirely on their functional work, project contributions are likely to get shorted.

Expert Leverage Interview
Jeanne Bradford on Achieving High-Performing Project Teams

Cinda has started a new feature aimed at mining the wisdom and know-how of a variety of experienced managers. Her first interview is with Jeanne Bradford of TCGen. Jeanne has lots to say about what individual PMs must be ready to take responsibility for, and what executives must do as well, to create cross-functional project teams that actually live up to the promise.
Musings on Things that Matter
Cinda has finally been convinced to air and share some of her more casual thoughts, questions, ahas, encouragement, good books, funny stories, or even rants. Her "Musings" blog is designed to be thought-provoking, encouraging, entertaining, inspiring, and collaborative.

Scrappy Design Thinking: Simple Rules, Practical Tools
Kimberly WieflingKimberly Wiefling Both design thinking and Scrappy Project Management share an obsession with "the customer." And both start by "thinking from the future" rather than getting stuck in the current situation, hampered by self-limiting beliefs about what's possible. Rather than using the classic design thinking model of Empathize -- Define -- Ideate -- Prototype -- Test, let's use a cycle that's a bit easier to remember: Why? -- Who? -- What? -- How?
