PM EDUCATION NEWS

1 November 2016 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, www.maxwideman.com. According to Max:

150701-pmwj36-wideman-PHOTOLast month we were not able to find a satisfactory definition of the term “project” in our paper “project” in the context of project management. However, more analysis in our latest paper a final conclusion discloses a definition of “project” that clearly disinguishes project work from BaU work.

For our Musings this month, titled: More on Project Management Hierarchies, we are introducing several “ladders” evident within the project management domain itself. These are: Project Management Maturity Levels, Project Management Discipline Levels, and a Purpose Hierarchy of Values. We feel that the relationships between these ladders will help us to understand and develop Project management practice still further in the future.

If you are looking for answers, guidelines or templates, check out Max’s Issacons – “Issues and Considerations” – that are presented in bullet form for quick and easy reference by project managers.
