A key part of project management is properly managing resources to complete tasks efficiently, on schedule, and on budget. However, scheduling resources—which include people, equipment, or facilities—is often a complex task.
Managing field service operations can be a pretty challenging task because so many factors are involved. Not only do you have to manage workers in the field, coordinate schedules, keep track of equipment, and respond to emergencies, you also have to keep customers happy with fast and effective service.
As a project manager, you frequently wear multiple hats and deal with a considerable number of things: deadlines, budget, teams...all at the same time is a real hassle. And when things go wrong, you are so stamped with work and so stressed, that finding a fast and practical way to solve problems seems impossible. Well it is not! You just need a fresh perspective. That is where TED Talks can prove to be of great value.
