    I just wrapped up the first day of our 2-day Essentials of Project Management workshop at one of my favorite biotech clients.

Of course there are no easy answers, but in this brief video, I share a story and some research that was reported in Bob Sutton's Wall Street Journal article (subscription may be required to read) years ago.

For example, I’m going through a Chance the Rapper phase right now—really enjoying his music. I’m a fan. Maybe it’s a local restaurant or a celebrity or, ahem, a podcast host. Ha! But when we think of fandom, we often think of someone famous, or a famous brand. But could it be that leaders of projects could get benefit from learning about how fandom works? That’s the premise of today’s episode. We’re hearing from David Meerman Scott today about his book new Fanocracy. It’s a book that probably wouldn’t have otherwise come up on your radar screen since it would appear it’s directed more towards brand managers and marketers. But how about this? What if you could turn your stakeholders into fans of what your team is creating? Further, what if your team members were walking billboards for your company and your products? The science around fandom might

Hubstaff Tasks also has a Sprints feature that allows you to organize all your tasks into a true agile weekly Sprint. Oh, and here’s a new feature they just added where you can set daily Standups to cover the three golden questions in the agile world: “What did you work on today?”, “What will you work on tomorrow?”, “Have you run into any roadblocks?” Hubstaff Tasks only launched this past June
