056 – Don’t buy the bias! Managing bias in project management

Whether we realize it or not, we are influenced by bias in the way we think about things. Maybe you are overly optimistic in your estimates, or under estimate the impact of risks. Planning fallacy, illusion of control, confirmation bias – the list goes on of different ways bias can mis-shape our perceptions and our decisions

This episode’s amazing guest, Jennifer Chandler, brings her depth of experience as a project manager and expertise in organizational leadership to help us understand bias and how to manage it


This week’s guest, Jennifer Chandler, received her Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute in 2008, even though she had been managing projects for decades before that.

She managed information technology projects for federal agencies (e.g., the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the U. S. Secret Service; the U. S. Navy; and the U. S. Army), international corporations (e.g., Motorola), and for national not-for-profit professional associations (e.g., the Association of American Medical Colleges).

She has also managed and mentored teams of project managers as well as one-on-one mentoring of project managers.  She has also conducted assessments of other organizations’ project management practices and developed curriculum and taught project management in organizations.
