    This week The PMO Podcast™ Featured Story presents, "PPM is Not Easy, Part 3," presented by Mark Perry (about Mark), host of The PMO Podcast™. There are many that claim that the concept of project portfolio management is an easy concept to grasp and they compare management of a project portfolio to the management of a financial portfolio. Really! This is the third of a three part series that suggests PPM is not that easy afterall.

    The PMO Podcast™ Points Memo presents, “Learning from Taylor." Do you know of a man named Frederick Taylor? Have you heard the term Taylorism? Taylor is credited for inventing scientific management. Taylor believed that decisions based upon tradition and rules of thumb should be replaced by precise procedures developed after careful study of an individual at work. Its application is contingent on a high level of managerial control over employee work practices. In management literature today, the it is not viewed favorable at all and greatest use of the concept of Taylorism is as a contrast to any new, improved way of doing business, such as agile..!

    The PMO Podcast™ Mailbag answers a listener question about what to do with a bad project manager.
