Miree Le Roy - Tuesday, October 04, 2011

In my blogs I have often said that one of the benefits of IPM is that it is Certified for Microsoft Dynamics (CfMD). This is clearly something we are very proud of, but I also know that for some of you, it may just seem like a jumble of letters and a logo on our website.   Read More...

How to turn a nine hour airport delay into an effective project management opportunity

Miree Le Roy - Tuesday, June 21, 2011

The recent Chilean volcano ash cloud and resulting closure of airports across southern Australia and New Zealand really goes to show how easily our travel plans can go awry. If you happened to be one of the many stuck at Melbourne airport last Monday, I’m sure the delays were not only frustrating, but also straining on your time. And even though this happened on a public holiday in Australia, there were still delays for people returning to work for days afterwards.  Read More...

Flexible, easily configurable project management software? It’s not a myth!

Miree Le Roy - Friday, June 17, 2011

I’ve talked often on this blog about the availability of project management software for the past 20 years being limited to highly specialised, inflexible, out of the box solutions.

Connecting the dots - why does connectivity matter to project managers?

Miree Le Roy - Thursday, May 12, 2011

Since March, I’ve been keeping this blog updated from my new home for the next few months in Northern China. The internet and my laptop have been a godsend here, with the ability to remotely connect to my email and Microsoft Dynamics CRM in our offices in Australia, and also by using Skype to connect with family, friends and colleagues. But last week I had a very unfortunate mishap that involved a bowl of soup and my laptop keyboard. Fortunately, I was able to get the keyboard fixed relatively cheaply here, but it did mean I was without a laptop, and hence very little communication with Australia, for just over a week.  Read More...
