I'm the Vice President of Programs for the Project Management Institute Michigan Capital Area Chapter (PMI-MCAC). Our 2007-2008 program year inaugural meeting featured Rudolf Melik, CEO and one of the founders of Tenrox. He gave a great presentation on Empowering Your Project Workforce. During his presentation he mentioned how business is changing due to globalization, workflow tools, outsourcing, off shoring, and the internet. Mr. Melik discussed ways to avoid MESS (Meetings Email & Spreadsheets) to increase productivity. On a personal level he recommended committing to projects, de-commoditizing your job, leveraging other individuals, keeping up with innovations, and using 21st century tools.
