Using Expertise Survey

I have recently participated in a survey on how expertise is leveraged and managed in organisations. This is part of an open research project where the results of the research are made available to the KM community as they are finalised. The project blog is at http://usingexpertise.blogspot.com, and there is also a wiki showing the outcomes of project workshops at http://usingexpertise.wikispaces.com

If you have time to complete the survey as well, please do add your perspective. The survey is at http://tinyurl.com/expertisesurvey, and when you have completed it, you will see the results of the survey collected so far.

What is the role of a PM?

There was a debate on project managers’ role (whether engineered for success or victim of circumstance) other day in office.
During the debate and after a long time I heard an original metaphor on project manager within an Indian IT services context from Ramesh Gopalakrishnan.
“you are a milkman asked to deliver 25 litres of milk to a customer at 5 pm, you did not decide the quantity or the time, you do not know if the cow will give the needed milk, but you are accountable for the delivery”

Does it sound familiar?
