Project Management is a term often thrown around in business, without a real understanding of what it is. So, let's start there, and then we'll take a look at the five phases of a project and how you can use Project Management to get results both at home and at work. (Read more.)

Reveille and Hyperbole
Employment Situation for November 2008. Nonfarm payroll employment fell sharply (-533,000) in November, and the unemployment rate rose from 6.5 to 6.7 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported.

In November, the ExecuNet Recruiter Confidence Index dropped to its lowest level amid a steady stream of negative economic reports. Despite this decline, recruiters expect the executive employment market to improve in the second half of next year, forecasting a 9-percent increase in search assignments in 2009. According to the November survey of 157 executive recruiters, 26 percent are confident or very confident the executive employment market will improve in the next six months - breaking a previous low of 27 percent in May 2003 - and down from 37 percent in October 2008. The drop in confidence was largely driven by a shift from "very confident and confident" to "somewhat confident," as opposed to "not confident," a positive sign indicating executive recruiters are taking a cautiously optimistic view of the market.

In Depth
The Needs of the Global Economy Workforce.

The global economy is brimming with new competitors and new challenges. As soon as we think we've mastered one aspect of doing business in this new environment, another, unexpected issue becomes an all-consuming priority, as we're seeing with the current economic crisis. Right now, the issues of gender, a high-performing workforce, the skills gap, demographics, and the growing confidence of emerging-market multinationals are all converging at a time of great uncertainty. This translates into increased opportunity for emerging markets-and increased pressure for established ones.

Indeed, the current financial crisis has underscored just how interconnected the global economy is. To achieve both long-term success and high performance, management must anticipate the motivations and concerns of every sector of tomorrow's workforce and plan accordingly. To better understand how prepared women and men feel to meet the coming challenges, Accenture conducted a major study, One Step Ahead of 2011: A New Horizon for Working Women. Interviews with 4,000 women and men in 17 countries at the end of 2007 produced a surprising conclusion: 68% of businesswomen in India, 63% in South Africa, 61% in China, and 52% in Brazil feel confident about their ability to succeed in a global business world. By contrast, only 46% of U.S. women-and men-feel that they're ready to compete in the larger international talent pool.

A Disparity in Professional Networking
Although Accenture's study found that women are developing the skills and the confidence to succeed in the global marketplace, there are several areas in which women are not achieving parity with their male counterparts. The study found that more men than women cite technical capabilities and fostering professional relationships as having helped their career advancement. More than one-quarter of all respondents said that men are more effective than women at building those professional networks.
