My belief, as the Englund Project Management Consultancy, is that all leaders need to create healthy environments for people to consistently and sustainably achieve project success. Sponsors can do a better job of guiding and supporting project teams, and project managers can expand their people skills.
To this end, Randall L Englund offers keynote talks, consulting, professional facilitation, executive education, books, articles, and advanced training services to people in management, managing projects, and working on project teams. My approach includes the behavioral, technical, business, leadership, influence, negotiation, political, conflict and change management aspects that create an environment for project success. The goal is to get greater, optimized results from projects underway or contemplated in the organization. An organic approach to implementing project, program, and portfolio management taps the inherent power of people to work in harmony, have fun, and be more productive.
A framework to approach success is L2M2-leadership, learning, means, and motivation. Advances in project and organizational maturity require all four factors in abundance.
- Creating an Environment for Successful Projects
- Creating the Project Office
- Project Sponsorship
- The Complete Project Manager
- The Complete Project Manager’s Toolkit
My practitioner experiences include field service engineering, military maintenance, manufacturing, factory sales development and marketing, program management, university education, tailored consulting, and seminar facilitation. I also survived designing and building a custom home. All proved to me the need to tap multiple disciplines to be successful.
