The World's Standard Project Management Port including management of the Unknown where the Blue Swans & Black Swans fly! ( R&D, Projects, Personal )

1 minute explanation:

Serendipity (+) is steerable when captured

within the triangle

1-Project, 2-Efficiency and 3-Serendipity.

It's then called the Serendipity Management Process

with which you can manage systematically

the Unknown Unknowns in R&D, Projects and Daily Life.

The more Efficient (*) you are

on your R&D, Projects and in Daily Life

the more serendipty you get!

(*) -> taking into account safety, quality, surroundings, time and costs  and....don't forget your own hobbies/dreams!

(+) based on the Persian story of The Three Princes of Serendip, who (Walpole wrote to a friend in 1754) were “always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of”. A blessing in disguise ans a Blue Swan is also serendipity.

The mirror-word is Unserendipty with misfortune coming with bad luck and Black Swans
