We all get excited about different things, I know a few people who get extremely cheerful when they see new concepts of the iPhone 7, and there are others (me) who get euphoric over sci-fi announcements, and if you didn’t know already there’s a new Star Trek TV series on the horizon! But today, the […]
I did a ‘Bing’ search earlier, not a ‘Google’ search (being a Microsoft partner we naturally love all things Microsoft), so what did I search? I sense you asking. I searched for types of cloud and I ended up on the Met Office ‘cloud spotting guide’ it’s an interesting read and before you know it, […]
“I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it, I’m about to lose control and I think I like it…” That’s what the Pointer Sisters stated when they heard the announcement from Microsoft concerning the new features that will be unleashed through Project Server 2016 & Project Online! They did go on to say: “I […]
Wrong choices, we’ve all made them. For example, the perm I had when I was at university, it seemed like a great idea at the time. But on reflection, it never should have happened.

We had people from our Recruitment, Consultancy and Training departments there, to speak to those that came. With a lot more people in attendance than previous years, it was one of our most successful shows […]
In this blog I start by subverting my recent theme of alluding to songs by providing you with the name of the artist and the album on which the song appears, all you have to do is work out the relevant song on Elvis Costello’s album “My aim is true”? Timesheets are a feature of […]
In my last blog article I covered the concept of Matrix Management and how it can be accommodated and supported in Project Server, the article was compiled as a result of a request from a customer on one of the training courses I was running. I am forever learning about Microsoft Project and Project Server […]
An apology first off to any of you who being aware of my cultural references thought this article might in some way make reference to Nemo, his friends and enemies. There is a saying that Project Management is a discipline for masochists as there is never enough time, money or resource available to deliver what […]
Generic Resources as a feature of the Project Server solution are a well-established concept, not only can they be assigned to tasks in Enterprise Template schedules they can also be used in Portfolio Analysis to identify “Resource Deficits” when considering a mix of projects arising from a Portfolio Analysis selection.
