Fourteen articles inspired by the most interesting people and projects we encountered during 2023.

What's hot in project development in 2023? The insights on our website provide a good snapshot. Read a few of the fourteen articles and let us know your thoughts. We trust that you will find them helpful.

The Sources of the Articles

The articles were based on the most interesting people and topics we encountered in our travels. For the most part, travels include the consulting assignments of JD Solomon Solutions. Sometimes, the article's source is related to the follow-up conversations from a workshop or webinar.

No Particular Order or Predetermined List

JD Solomon Solutions is a lean, niche company. That means most of the content creation for the website falls on me and not our team. Time is precious, so everything comes from the wild. The golden rule is, “See it, write about it, and post it.” That makes looking back on the previous year's content just as informative as the articles themselves.

What’s In Project Development

Yes, we actually call this category Program Development in our company information. We use “project development” in this article because it is a more popular term for internet searches. In practice, this category includes program development, including individual project development, and program delivery.

We simplify it as the 3D’sDecisions, Development, Delivery. Specific services include business case evaluations, partnerships & regionalization, delivery methods, project tools, and communication. Please see our Program Development webpage for more information.

There is a Good Range of Topics

The goal is to be inspired to produce one 600 to 900-word article each month. We exceeded the goal with fourteen.

JD Solomon Solutions primarily helps owners develop programs and related projects. We prefer to have our partner engineering and construction firms do the implementation-phase program management and construction management. It is not surprising the mix of articles is two-thirds to one-third.
