Wideman Project Management Website updates announced

 

PM EDUCATION NEWS

2 February 2018 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, http://www.maxwideman.com/. According to Max:

This month we present the first part of a Paper by Guest Crispin (Kik) Piney titled: PMI’s Models of Project Management Knowledge Part 1 — Life Cycles, Process Groups and Knowledge Areas. After years of deliberation, Kik now draws attention to how the PMI PMBOK(R) Guide is laid out that is unnecessarily confusing where Life Spans, Process Groups and Knowledge Areas are concerned. Where and how that it could be improved will follow in Part 2 next month.

In Musings we offer a short ten-point “To-Do” list of how to go about Conveying Bad News on Your Project to your immediate superior. In the majority of projects, it will inevitably happen, so be ready!

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.
