Entrepreneurs Vs. Academia: How Project Management is Advanced

How does management science advance? Of course, in the hard sciences the field moves forward when some researcher develops and tests a given theory, and either proves or disproves it in an experimental setting. However, a free marketplace, with thousands (if not millions) of unpredictable people serving as influencers on the outcome of a test on a given business theory represents too complex an environment to prove or disprove anything (kind of makes you wonder why they bother to describe such a field of inquiry as “management science”). So, with the clean laboratory setting denied management theorists, how does management science advance? Clearly, it advances via the entrepreneurs. In a sense, each time an entrepreneur launches an enterprise, she is staking capital on either a new management theory or an established one in a new environment.

Entrepreneurs, Project Managers, and Collaboration

I have the great opportunity to speak with project managers and entrepreneurs from around the world via #PMChat, a weeklyTweetup I co-founded in 2011. Over the past two years, we have had some amazing experts from leadership, project management, and other business disciplines lead community discussions on strategy, negotiations, virtual teams, and more.

Of course there are exceptions and accidental entrepreneurs who can be successful. However, there are methods and principles which make us more productive and more creative.

A Pretty Sweet Recipe

The man decided (one day - he's not sure when it became a reality) he was going to put his full weight behind that idea. It had been nagging him for months, how great this idea would be to solve that problem at the office. But they'd never change. Anyway, it was his idea - if it was going to happen, it would have his name on it.

Fast forward a year, and he's secured some seed funding, he's got a team of six, and now he's looking at the ominous prospect of launching the product to the public in six months. He's pretty amazed with what he's achieved with his team, who are now his closest friends. When anyone asks, he says "Yeah, I worked about 15 hours a day. Still do!" He looks tired, but seems too afraid to lose the momentum of non-stop improving his product. One day it'll be perfect, you see. There's just too many problems with it right now.
