I recently attended DrupalCon Dublinwhere I spoke about being a less controlling project manager. Having experienced a shift some years ago to a more agile way of working, it’s a topic I was keen to explore.
In my talk I outlined how implementing a model of centralised control on a project is not a healthy approach. I discussed how it may be one of the main contributing factors that can lead to projects becoming quite challenged, or even failing altogether.
I recently attained the Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) certification and found the process a good opportunity to reflect on what led me to Scrum. It was also a chance to take pause and consider our industry approach to project management.
