Ep10 Unpack with JC – Mike Stapleton Interview

Last episode I caught up with Mike Stapleton Deputy Director-General Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads. He oversees the delivery of safety, regulatory and transactional transport services for the department. It was a privilege to have Mike on the show and I appreciated his openness to our conversation.

Today I talk about project status reporting and why there should be no surprises for Program Executives (Project Sponsors).

JC Three Tips:

  1. Understand your project in the organisational landscape.
  2. Agree tolerances and report expectations.
  3. Escalate early.

My favourite Mike quote from our conversation ‘some project managers seem to suffer what I call optimism bias, I’ll solve this and get on with it’.
