Read what Albert Einstein said about project management

Albert Einstein is quoted for saying “We cannot solve a problem by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them“. I don’t know the context for the quote, but it certainly is true for project management. As a freelance project manager it surprises me how many organisations that continue with the same thinking on failed project after failed project. A positive exception is the Government Digital Service who is working hard on changing how Government departments and Government bodies think about how to deliver projects and how focus on the users.

I think Einstein would have been a fine project manager.
