Welcome to PM Lift, the podcast aimed at helping to Elevate your Project Management Practice through short focused and informative monthly episodes on topics that truly matter to project managers in all industries.

I’m your host, Mark Warner. I have over 20 years of experience managing software development projects and technology project portfolios within a market-leading global, highly distributed organisation.

During this time the way we manage projects has changed with a shift away from more traditional waterfall to agile approaches.

The future of project management is constantly changing.   A recent survey by KPMG and the recruitment firm Harvey Nash found that projects were more complex, more ambitious and experience more change than just five years ago. This presents a significant challenge.

Such challenges make Project Management an excellent career choice for those of us who enjoy learning and developing our own and our team’s abilities and capabilities.

PM Lift will help support you on this journey. Each episode will cover a key topic or issue facing project managers. Presented in a concise to the point format that’s perfect for busy project managers dealing with constant time pressures.

We will be looking at both established and emerging ideas in Project Management drawing inspiration from various methodologies, frameworks and thought leaders. I firmly believe that as project managers we shouldn’t blindly follow any single methodology but instead should ensure we remain open to ideas from elsewhere whether that be PMI’s PMBOK, Prince2, Prince2 Agile, AgilePM, Praxis Framework or the emerging Hybrid approaches.
