Garver Senior Project Manager Jennifer Russell recently presented a paper at the International Symposium of the International Council on Systems Engineering in Edinburgh, Scotland entitled “Therapy for Projects.”
She wrote the paper with employees of Rolls Royce after they discovered a shared interest in the psychology of teams. In this paper, the team converted the language used to evaluate and treat individual psychological conditions so that it could be applied to projects.
“We created an evaluation tool for project teams to find potential solutions to their challenges," said Jennifer, who has a degree in engineering psychology. “The solutions are based on years of research into individual psychology applied to projects as a whole.”
“This is the first step in testing the application of individual psychology to a whole project,” she said, “but it’s resonating with project teams. We are looking forward to validating the effectiveness of the recommendations.”
