    I've been asking several questions about the ways in which business use videos lately, so this is timely. Love the comments thus far, but I've got a far simpler take on this. I use video because people * don't * read! They don't. I don't know why they don't, but they just don't.

    Okay, I've started a response, but it's getting way too long for a comment, so I'll write a response buzz instead. Thanks for making my brain tick, @Greg Williams.

    #9 Thanks Harvey for weighing in. Yes!! Video is probably the most powerful way to share your brand with the world, but that also means it is the most powerful way to destroy your brand by not executing correctly or properly strategizing about the message being shared. Good point, thanks for bringing it up.

    We have started using video as a way to connect with our clients.we are about a year into actual production after 2 years of finding our skill sets. In reading your post along with many others we determined that video is great! But video is also something that can change the face of your brand, in the wrong direction.

    Emails, posts and words on a screen are one thing, video engages more senses than just print. When you activate these senses your video should influence them in such a way that its a very narrow outcome. Just because you think something would be nice or cute doesn't necessarily resonate with others where all senses are engaged.

    With printed materials, i can imagine or insert the other senses from my own experience. With video, in today's world, the expectation is that video will deliver on all of the senses. Audio, consistent color, presentation and communications are all expected within the delivery envelope.

    Welcome @Greg Williams and your post is on point.

If you want an email client, there is Mozilla Thunderbird, among others. Why some people still use Outlook is beyond me...

    It´s a numbers game. Dishonest people, fraudulent people, people with ill intentions are part of our society. At a certain size, every platform will attract them.

    Nobody can remove them fully from our real lives, and the same is true for social media.

    It´s a neverending race. While criminals will find another hole shortly after one is closed, every attempt to make cybercrime impossible comes at the cost of sacrificing convenience and privacy.

    #1 Sounds like you were following the main rule of Solution Architecture: document everything clearly and before any development is done. This helps with communication, as well as setting expectations clearly. The approach with a larger project is no different, just more writing, researching and planning.
    Pamela 🐝 Williams
    17/12/2016 #1 Pamela 🐝 Williams
    I delved into development management in my last position as we migrated an Excel based metrics program into a BI software. I learned quickly how easily communication can break down, especially when English (my native tongue) is not the native language of the developer. I began keeping a 'Diary' for each step of the process and even wrote and mapped exactly what I was trying to achieve. These diaries were a huge help to the developer and when I moved on I was able to pass the diaries on to the program's support team. What was great was when my vision was so straight forward, the developer and I could walk through the plan together and modify and sometimes it helped him come up with some unique solutions. I won't say I would want to handle a large project but it was definitely fun watching my vision come to life.

    Great suggestions, @Stephane, but I just want to add a codicil to Laborit's Rule: I used to ALWAYS start with the most difficult project until a supervisor told me to do quick and easy tasks first, rather than time-consuming ones, because then at the end of the day at least you will have completed *something*, or perhaps a few things.

    I think her advice is worth noting for people who are evaluated on how much they produce and/or how many tasks they complete, and for busy execs with long To Do lists.

    On the other hand, if it's simply a matter of the distasteful and it's not time-sensitive (like making a phone call you know is going to be uncomfortable or unpleasant) then I do it your way: bad stuff first and get it off my plate and out of my mind!

    Life is a juggling act and the most important balls to juggle are work and family.If you are able to separate them in two separate tracks,I think you will be able to juggle any more balls.It's also insecure trying to influence something and at the end you discover that you you didn't influence anything because you are bound by time and also was not able to separate your tasks.You need focus whether you are going to prioritize your schedule or are going to schedule your priorities.You have to learn the rules of juggling your tasks to be on the 20% side otherwise you will finish up with no ball in your hand as all the balls will fall on your head.

    These are all great. I wanted to add two more that are not law or principles yet great guidelines to time management.
    #1 - "Reward your Spouse for Their Sacrifices."
    Once today is gone, we can not get it back. If you are now, or soon wanting to become an Entrepreneur time becomes so much more precious. This is why you much master Time Management. So you must always schedule time for family, and friends. The most important of these is your Spouse or Significant other.
    #2 - "Your Physical Health is Vital"
    Exercise is Vital. If you don’t do it, you will not have any energy. So you need to schedule a routine time everyday for time. This is also the only time that I suggest multi-tasking. Multitasking is not efficient and lessons the IQ. One can not fully concentrate on what they are doing. Yet, when you are exercising this is the perfect time to listen to audios, and turn your walking or strength session into a learning or motivation session. I like to listen to my audios my on my machine at home or walking outside.

    Taking criticism like a pro goes back to Human Resources. They should have instituted a proper training program focusing on ethics and moral in the work place. That course of training will instruct associates that a difference of opinion should not be viewed as a hostile act. Criticism and feedback should be welcome in any business environment. When people react negatively to criticism and feedback there could be the existence of micro management. Micro management is considered the evil of all business operations.

    I work in an industry where there are more certifications than one can shake a stick at, and for most of them, the stick has more value. The PMP designation is one that I do give some credibility to based on the level of demonstrated experience and rigor in achieving the certification.

    For someone like you who has been doing the role for year, you are in that unfortunate hell of the HR systems... they look for the buzzwords, and unfortunately they can't filter out valid project management experience without some credentials.

    Unlike 'engineers' (at least here in my province) and 'doctors', anyone can refer to themselves as a 'project manager', a 'consultant' or even a 'writer'.

    The one benefit to the PMP designation is that they are usually administered through a local chapter of the Project Management Institute - which in my experience is an affinity group of professionals that not only put on monthly development sessions, but also track PM work in the region.

    Phillip > "I have to wonder how the keepers of the certifications became relevant. Who certified them?"

    Nobody did. Such organizations, like the classification societies in the marine industry, are private, for-profit companies or at most private non-profit corporations (not to be confused with charitable organizations). They started themselves up. Bartered with some companies some bootstrapping in terms of credibility, and proceded to market themselves. Sort of like a prototype for establishing oneself as an expert or guru or leader on social media. Cheers!

    In all honesty, you might just be better off bringing that BCC program into existence. It happened in my software, I had 10 years experience before the certifiers got around to seeing a niche to exploit. All of a sudden recruiters would be on these quests for the holy grail, people having been certified for 10 years. Huh? For the most part, being a good communicator I could point out the fallacy and get the veteran recruiters to see that I was someone willing to have a difficult conversation...which is basically the single greatest indicator of a successful consultant or project manager.

    If you can have difficult conversations all day long, with people who have no reason to do what you ask of them, and the project keeps moving along; you are a success - certificates be damned. Book knowledge never met a single deliverable.

    And yet when I insisted construction personnel put a harness on while repairing the roof on a three story building I received eye rolls and disgruntled whispers. I also made the supervisor place someone at the base of the extension ladder the guys were using to get to the roof. "I don't have enough guys here for someone to stand around holding a ladder".
