Diagrammatical Dissertation

“A bringing together of beloved belles lettres, this chart diagrams 25 famous opening lines from revered works of fiction according to the dictates of the classic Reed-Kellogg system. From Cervantes to Faulkner to Pynchon, each sentence has been painstakingly curated and diagrammed by PCL’s research team, parsing classical prose by parts of speech and offering a partitioned, color-coded picto-grammatical representation of some of the most famous first words in literary history. Whether you’re a book buff, an English teacher, or a hard-line grammarian, this diagrammatical dissertation has something for the aesthete in all of us.”

Creative Intellect

“The engine that drives all of this, ideally, is one’s creative intellect. This, in turn, manifests itself in how you perceive, think about, and articulate your ideas and research—verbally, in writing, and visually, through diagrams, models, maps, and presentations.”

Common Project Manager Mistakes

A short list of the potential problems resulting from inadequate stakeholder identification and analysis include:

  • Increased project risk in the form of unknown unknowns that unpredictably manifest as surprises throughout the project life cycle.
  • Increased demands from senior management stakeholders for frequent and detailed project progress and status information.
  • Delivering a “successful failure.” By this I mean, delivering on the known and agreed requirements without recognition that those requirements did not include input from important (unknown) stakeholder constituencies.
  • Reduced ability to effectively anticipate and manage stakeholder expectations.
  • Increased scope instability and frequent change control challenges.
