Wideman Project Management Website updates announced




1 March 2018 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, www.maxwideman.com.  According to Max:

Below is my site update for March 2018. Folks about to tackle the next PMBOK Upgrade should be particularly interested on Part 2 of Kik Piney’s Guest paper about Project Life Cycles, Process Groups and Knowledge Areas and how serious anomalies should be fixed!



We are trying to find Cyril Souchon who wrote the article: Impediments to Defining Stakeholder Needs, (June 2004). His quoted email is no longer active. If anyone knows how he may be reached, please drop an Email to Max Wideman.

March – This month we have Part 2 of Crispin (Kik) Piney’s Guest Article on PMI’s Models of Project Management Knowledge in which he describes the Confusion and Proposes changes for the next PMBOK® Guide update. This is valuable advice especially for all those teaching and practicing under the Project Management Professional® designation.

Have you ever thought about adopting New Year Resolutions that apply to your management of projects? Guest David Miller starts out by explaining why such resolutions are hard to keep followed by Resolutuions worth taking.

That pesky stairway project at the corner of a local city park, where local residents can grow some garden vegetables, ended up having a new life. The project caught the attention of the Mayor of Toronto who declared: “The original cost estimate for the City of Toronto to build stairs in Tom Riley Park was absolutely ridiculous . . . [but] . . . Anything the City builds has to be absolutely safe and has to be able to stand the test of time.” So, the homemade stairs were demolished and replaced by city-built stairs. We don’t know how much those cost.
