Why Tough Mudder ?

When I told my Mom I was running this Tough Mudder race, her first response was..what did you call me ? Once I explained to her what Tough Mudder was, she, like my boy asked simply why? Aside from the charity thing, which i admit is not the primary reason the ‘Why’ is both simple and complicated. I’m running this race because when…

Tough mudder me

So in a fit of abject stupidity,  and after being bullied by my old buddy James Stammer from Synergi fitness, I have agreed to run the Tough Mudder race in September of 2013.

There seems to be a breed of managers that try to create a situation, dissent for the hell of it purely because they can? Wrong, bad, go to the naughty step; hate that, hate hate hate. My job is to deliver the project, successfully,…

At the risk of seeming obsessive, I’d like to touch on one of the major issues I feel that Prince2 still has in its education program and thus its application in the ‘real world’.  It comes in part from the distinction, real or perceived between the real working environment and the classroom (or Prince2 environment). The course runs for 5…
