I hate projects, I love projects!

Projects, everywhere projects. Organisational ‘projectification’ has been applied to many companies, mBank is no exception. All around us is named as a project and this is counterproductive for all interested parties. For products, where we count on the longterm ownership and Agile craftsmanship. For projects which are about changing a status quo thus require strong sponsorship and high level od project management competencies. We all suffer due to organisational ‘projectification’. mBank and corporations need to find the way to manage the business differently.
