Project Managing Blockchain Projects
Presented by Phillip G. Bradford, Ph.D.

Dr. Bradford's talk will start with some of the critical attributes of Blockchain technology. He will then discuss how he approached the implementation of a Blockchain project. In particular, he will outline his use of the Diamond Approach (NTCP) to project management.  We will outline the basic diamond approach.

The Diamond Framework is from “Reinventing Project Management The Diamond Approach to Successful Growth and Innovation” by Aaron J. Shenhar and Dov Dvir, Harvard Business School Press, 2008.
