By popular request, the video of JAF’s talk

February 3, 2011 at 10:12 am 3 comments

When I put up the post regarding Jawwad Ahmed Farid’s talk at the PMI Karachi Chapter’s 74th Seminar, I received a number of requests from young people in Lahore and Islamabad asking if there was any way the talk could be recorded and shared. So armed with my flip, I proceeded to the Regent Plaza to record what I knew would be an interesting session.

I have heard Jawwad speak about Startup Failure before but I was interested in knowing how the Project Managers would view the talk. They don’t like the word failure much although we know that according to published statistics, a large number of projects fail. The questions were sort of different as many of the serious PMIs tried to get to grips with why this man so joyfully shared his failures and the lessons learnt – in a society where risk and failure are both shunned.

All those who weren’t able to attend the lecture, this is for you. Since Mr. Farid doesn’t stand in one place, I had a severe neck cramp by the time I was through taping this talk. Please forgive the portions where you see only his upper back and the back of his head. There was no way for me to keep moving without disrupting the talk.
