The Hard-Nosed Project Manager tends to gravitate in scope toward its given title: hard-nosed, as well as practical, first-hand experience and observation as opposed to theory. Specifically, it is written from the hard-nosed experience of Patrick Richard, a Montreal-based PMP, with Combat and Chemical Engineering experience across a variety of industries. Admittedly, Patrick says he was surprised that his approach to project management was anything but “out there” when he started Hard-Nosed in January 2010.
“It was NOT a New Year resolution,” Patrick says. “I attended a class by Harold Kerzner and was surprised that my approach to project management was not “way out there”. I started reading other PM blogs and decided that I could contribute.”
Patrick adds new posts a “few times a week” to Hard-Nosed, and says word or mouth or relevant buzz in the industry inspires him to write.
“I’m motivated to post by something I read or heard, something that happens in one of my projects, questions from peers or those looking for mentorship,” he says. “I intend to reach other PMs, those who aspire to become PMs, those who face team leadership issues.”
