I've heard many a Project Manager talk about managing processes far more frequently than managing and motivating his or her team. It's as if they've been trained to depend upon processes instead of Human Beings (the greatest assets of any business). Project Management, to be successful, requires people to interact effectively. If they can communicate frequently and in real-world, real-time, that is absolutely best. It's the best for education, and the best for increasing the frequency of Human interaction.
I like Project Management Hut's approach of having "Huts-On-Site" for education and training. I'm picturing (though laughable) little kiosks which look like thatched huts on the beach of some tropical paradise, right down to the leaves on the top and perhaps an ethanol-free refreshment bar... but I'm just dreaming.
If I could suggest to PM Hut (http://www.PMhut.com) that they take it just one step further by making these little pavilions into permanent Project Management Resources Offices that become prominent in corporate architecture, it would do two things: 1) It would give project managers a place to stay instead of their being virtual to important interactive processes, and it would afford them a place of permanence instead of feeling like wandering "guns for hire", 2) It would encourage interpersonal communication and relationships and better integrate project management professionals into normal, accepted corporate or organizational operations.
The folks at PM Hut are innovators, thought leaders, educators and wonderful writers. They deserve the distinction of always being one step ahead of anyone else when it comes to project management.
They put some real emphasis on the "people" and "employment" aspects of project management, instead of obsessing over Agile and Scrum, which, to me, always sounded like a comedy team.
