Raji Sivaraman joins host Craig Price to discuss her new book “Making Projects Sing: A Musical Perspective of Project Management“. Most people like music and EVERYONE loves project management. So why not bring the two together? Raji and Craig talk about just that as they discuss how musicians and project managers often do many of the same activities, have many of the same processes and can learn how to improve both by looking at how the two relate to each other. Raji shares how M.U.S.I.C. (Measure, Utilize, Schedule, Integrate, Communicate) are important regardless if you are a musician or project manager. She also introduces Craig to McKinsey’s “Fragile to Agile” concepts as well as showing how we can create beautiful project music as an ensemble and still be able to jam out an awesome career guitar solo.
Raji’s book Making Projects Sing: A Musical Perspective of Project Management can be found at amazon and other fine bookstores but if you email her directly (listen to the podcast to get it!) she will happily offer a major discount to Reality Check listeners!
