So there we were at the 10th annual UMD PM Symposium, having the Great Debate of Process vs principles. Facing off were Crystal Richards, CEO of MindsparQ and Laura Barnard, CEO of PMO Strategies. One hour of back and forth and audience questions. In sum:
From the debate between Laura and Crystal,
It’s clear that project managers should grab the handle.
Be a business leader and ask good questions,
Embrace risk and change with no exceptions.
