For those interested in project management, entrepreneurship, solopreneurship, leadership, or the future of work, InfoWorks is where you want to be. We bring our readers how-to articles, editorials, and thought pieces from a talented roster of guest bloggers. We are an informational hub where leading-edge topics and smart analysis converge.

In today’s work world, the boundaries between project management, freelancing, and entrepreneurship have changed in interesting ways. Skillful project management is important at large corporations, and it’s important as well to freelancers and solopreneurs. Today, a larger percentage of the work force is comprised of independent workers than ever before, and this trend is expected to continue. No matter the industry – and whether you’re working from home or at an established company – the future of work will be project-based, and it will require innovation, creativity, and flexibility.

InfoWorks keeps its readers in-the-know about the latest trends and research in entrepreneurship, project management, and the future of work, along with introducing new topics and analyses from outside industries and areas of academia. Join us at InfoWorks as together we strive to be smarter about business.

 


About the Editor

The InfoWorks blog is an outgrowth of InfoWorks® International, a corporate training and consulting firm co-founded by Denise Gifford that trained tens of thousands in project management and related skills. During her time managing InfoWorks’ team of independent freelancers and contractors, Denise came to understand that in today’s world of increased automation, job-hopping, and freelancing, businesspeople must learn to balance risk and opportunity with an ever-observant eye toward the future of work.

Prior to heading InfoWorks, Denise worked in sales and marketing management and as a consultant in the financial services industry. She holds her MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
