Yet another curiosity is that I learned project management at a major misfortune 50 company before returning to the public sector. I was actually successful with all my projects, including one for $750,000 to replace a system for the Year 2000.
Wanting to do the right thing, I brought my expertise and materials to HR training folks who actually thought the material was really cool. They worked on it for awhile and developed a creditable program of training with two tracks: One for IT and one for the Construction side of the government agency. They did a good job.
Since that time six years ago, the class has fallen to disuse and IT management does not know how to manage projects: A manager stated in a meeting, "IT isn't very good at managing projects".
Because I have no credibility, I did nothing to point out that the problem could be solved internally.
