The future of work, at least for me, is project work. At least it seems that way at the moment.
So… welcome to the new work order.
But project management is really one of my blindspots.
Working in education, I have a background in training, not project management, or any kind of management really.
I’m Ok with deep domain knowledge in my obscure field, but I’ve always felt out of my depth when it comes to project management.
It’s weird because in education we are constantly surrounded by the language of project management but my impression is that no one really knows what this language means.
As part of my DIY non-MBA, MBA, I’m trying to get some new ideas but also address my blindspots.
I’m slowly working through a list of things that interest me or that I think are going to help me:

She asked me a couple of questions which we recorded for the video above. Notes and other takeaways will follow soon.
