Blog: Can a project manager be too motivated?

An unmotivated project manager is obviously not good for a project. He has difficulty motivating others and he will have difficulty completing all tasks on time.

Blog: IAPM title abbreviation and certificate badges

In order to give you the opportunity to make customers, partners, colleagues or employees aware of your certifications, we have developed a small icon, a badge, for each level of certification, which we offer in three different formats.

Blog: Digitalisation changes the management culture

In Manager Magazin, business economist and physician Andreas Föller reflects on digitalization and how it influences our management culture. He finds that digitization is virtually forcing a new management culture. All employees, but also the employers, have to change - in thinking as well as in acting. Föller points out that most people are reluctant to embrace change. Often a change on a political, societal or social level is presented in the media as downright frightening. Think for example of the smoking ban in restaurants.
