Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 158!

The SPaMCAST 158 features my interview with Peter Taylor.  We discussed his book The Lazy Project Manager. Peter and I discussed how to be an effective and effiecent project manager and still have a balanced life!

Peter is a dynamic and commercially astute professional who has achieved notable success in Project Management.

His background is in project management across three major business areas over the last 26 years, MRP/ERP systems with various software houses and culminating in his current role with Infor, Business Intelligence (BI) with Cognos, and product lifecycle management (PLM) with Siemens. He has spent the last 7 years leading PMOs and developing project managers and is now focusing on project based services development with Infor.

He is also an accomplished communicator and leader and is a professional speaker as well as the author of ‘The Lazy Project Manager’ (Infinite Ideas) and ‘Leading Successful PMOs’ (Gower) and ‘The Lazy Winner’ (Infinite Ideas).

More information can be found at  and – and through his free podcasts in iTunes.
