Craig Mackay, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Sharktower AI With over 20 years of delivering projects and seeing too many failures, Craig is obsessed with tackling the waste in projects. Craig has spent his whole career delivering change; whether it be lean process efficiency, people change, software solutions, new product propositions or large scale technology transformations. Throughout this, he has been continually frustrated by the wasted effort (and investment) in project delivery. Whether it is caused by misaligned incentives, lack of outcome clarity, a "deliver regardless" mindset, working to governance milestones or siloed manual subjective reporting - the failure rate in projects is still too high. Too many projects are still managed by slide decks, sticky notes and gut instinct. He believes businesses can make better decisions and ultimately make the world a better place. He believes project delivery can be done better if we learn from our mistakes. He believes people could be using their time more effectively if aligned on outcomes. He knows the answer is the use of data to do this. It is time to make change delivery more data-driven. About Sharktower AI - software designed to remove waste and support enterprise agility so your business can make the most of change investment and outcomes. The aim isn’t to replace Project Managers, but to recreate at scale the insight that comes from working in smaller project team.

Genuinely really good at leading, landing and managing change, but without bravado and consultancy bullshit.  Last year she was awarded the inaugural PMI UK Young Project Professional 2019.  Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/susie-palmer-trew-13108646/  Peter is the Lazy Project Manager, this is his 3rd appearance on the podcast he is change expert who has built and led five global PMOs across several industries and has advised many other organisations on Change and Project strategy. He is also the author of the number 1 bestselling project management book ‘The Lazy Project Manager’. In the last few years, he has delivered over 360 lectures and workshops around the world in over 25 countries and has been described as ‘perhaps the most entertaining and inspiring speaker in the project management world today’ and is, he believes, the only PM stand-up comic around.  Web: www.thelazyprojectmanager.com   Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/peterbtaylor/  Twitter: twitter.copm/thelazypm If you want  to support the show here are a few ways Share with your friends Write us a stellar five-star review on the listening platform(s) of your choice Purchase one of the books, link here One of the guests books through our syndicate links Have a listen to our record the Twelve Days of Project on iTunes, amazon music, Spotify or google play music.
