I was thinking about you today – remembering how we sat at your kitchen table and you had me thinking about the future – began the work of shifting me towards bigger visioning. Starting from where I want to be and working my way back. I have old habits of just trying to get through each step, getting from here to there but rarely do I start from the dream fulfilled and work my way backwards. To me it was/is revolutionary thinking. I am noticing that I am starting to dream bigger; I am starting to see my future self (successful leader change maker life changer land owner business owner)..glimpses anyway. It is a big deal considering there was a time in my life when I couldn’t imagine a positive future; this is/I am changing and you are a big part of my deeper shift … ANYWAY, I want to thank you today for planting a seed in me, in my mind, my heart. I so appreciate you!
We had awesome event with you last Friday! I am still amazed from your workSHOCK. It was absolutely above all expectations! I would like to thank you personally and on behalf of all employees for a great time and all the useful insights. I am sure we will meet again soon, since I will promote for another workSHOCK asap! I did a short survey about how everyone understood and experienced it and they all love it. They all confirmed that it is great and useful to have activities that burst our organizational development and culture. We need that at this crucial moment, and it makes me happy to be HR in an organization like that!
Thanks for your timely advice this week! You have the right templates and tools that you can send at a moment’s notice, even at midnight! You truly care about the long term success of our company. And last, but not least, I can count on you to understand my half-finished thoughts because you are smart, flexible, and have a big heart!
It was simply MAGICAL. Kimberly’s super-unique workshop transformed my team. Now my team is super energetic and already started making positive changes. Thanks Kimberly!
Kimberly is a whole energy level unto herself. I call it the “Kimberly Factor”. Her passion to give, teach and mentor excels people, programs and companies.
Kimberly took me to the next level in taking on a leadership role. She encouraged me to success.
I wanted to let you know that what I imbibed from you during the course has been of IMMENSE help to me and that I’ve put it all to good use. I started my own company and have been running it successfully for the last one year or so, introducing a totally new service concept to the challenging markets in India. (http://www.autovega.in ) Thanks a lot for your contagious enthusiasm!
If you want to build energy, velocity, and momentum toward an outrageous goal, Kimberly’s Scrappy Project Management is just what you’ve been waiting for to help you get those results with more pleasant surprises and fewer disappointing shocks along the way.
Your book is going to help people survive the corporate zoo that is project management!
At last, someone has come along who rejects the bland world of ‘blah blah blah’ project management books that live in the academic ether. Scrappy Project Management has given us the REAL ‘dungeons and dragons’ equivalent of achieving a SUCCESSFUL project despite the odds and oddities of company culture. Kimberly Wiefling tells you how to fight for what’s right and stop being spineless without getting the worst of it. Put this spine on your bookshelf, or in your survival kit. This is THE resource for the power starved PMs who need to learn how to street fight for resources, deal with customer insanity, and dodge the falling rocks as you stay on top of everything. A fighting spirit and a confident strategy is the RETURN ON THIS INVESTMENT.
This book unabashedly puts forward a new, unambiguous, non-shrinking, and ultimately empowering view of what we all as project managers should commit to be and do every day in our project roles.
Kimberly is one of the most enthusiastic and up-beat people I have ever worked with. She is driven by the belief that it is more than her job, it is her obligation, to make those around her successful. She is an exceptionally quick study with a firm grounding in science and engineering. Kimberly…easily identifies choke points to progress as well as opportunities for leverage. She is a model of persistence…
All the advice you gave me during our last meeting is paying off. Who could believe having a white board would do wonders – – just as you said. . . . this afternoon my manager said “You’re so organized and such a good communicator.
It is delightful to have you work with us. You are already having a positive impact on the whole project situation.
