Preview of some of those tips:

  • 7P's = Proper Preparation & Practice Prevents Piss Poor Performance. (some call it 6 without the ... you know which)
  • Know Your Venue
  • Visualize Success
  • Know Your Audience 
  • Claim the three “audience truths.” One: They believe you’re the expert, so don’t tell them otherwise. Two: They want you to succeed, so they’re on your side. Three: They won’t know when you make a mistake, so don’t announce it
  • Realize you don’t look as nervous as you feel
  • Memorize your opening
  • Get psyched up before you go "on" - See Amy Cuddy  http://on.ted.com/Cuddy

How to manage the tension between agility and discipline in IT

How to manage the tension between agility and discipline in IT | Project-Based Business Development | Scoop.it
According to the National Apprenticeship Service, the IT sector in the UK has seen a 13% growth in IT apprenticeships within the last year alone. The IT industry, and the required skills sets of the professionals that serve it, are changing fast.
With this explosive growth comes the need for new ideas to manage demand. More often than not, organisations and their employees are required to pursue an array of project-based work simultaneously.
Some IT projects are well-defined and can be approached with pre-determined processes, tools and techniques. In traditional terms, it is a methodology based on a rigid structure or discipline; other IT projects, however, require a new kind of agility in order to adapt to rapidly changing scope, emerging technologies and evolving markets.
