A PERFECT WORLD

Let’s face it, in a perfect world every project would be "on time, under budget, and without problems."  In this same environment, my favorite football team would always be in the Super Bowl; but that’s just not going to happen.

In reality, most projects are deemed “too important” to fail; and yet, problems can – and do – surface.  For example: it is not uncommon for projects, regardless of their size, to have speed bumps, obstacles, or risks that can create problems. These challenges can impact any project manager’s ability to oversee the success of the project or even set the project on a path of a potential failure.

The term ‘Middle Market’ organization may have many different definitions and for purposes of this article, it shall be defined as an organization having an employee population between 2,000 to 15,000 employees and a revenue base between 20 million to 100 million. These organizations are typically private entities which have achieved levels of success through extremely hard work, fiscal discipline, due diligence in their decision making, bringing on the right talent at the right time, and likely a little luck as well. A number of Middle Market organizations have grown their leadership teams from within.

For veterans who want to dive into the civilian sector as entrepreneurs and business owners, the opportunities are still daunting, as financial lending options continue to be limited at best. This situation, while a problem for all job seekers and entrepreneurs, is especially challenging for veterans who can – and do – make valuable contributions in the private sector.
