Many executives have long viewed project management as a practice that wastes organizational time and resources. Many project managers have criticized management for preventing them to manage projects appropriately. What the field needs is a forum that can help bring these two sides together. This article profiles a new column that will appear in future issues of PM Network, a column written by the author and titled "The Executive's Notebook." It explains the column's focus: To provide executives with insight into the issues and concerns of managing projects and with recommendations and information that may help narrow the current knowledge gap existing between executives and project managers. It identifies some of the topics that the column will examine in future issues of PM Network and defines the author's goal: to explore the executive's expectations of their project managers and the project manager's expectations of their executives.
