Wideman Project Management Website updates announced for February 2015

 

PM EDUCATION NEWS

1 February 2015 – Vancouver, BC, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, http://www.maxwideman.com/. According to Max:

This month in Papers we present Part 2 of our review of Peter Morris’s book: Reconstructing Project Management. In this second half of his book, Peter focuses on the “front end”, who is responsible for each phase, and pointing out that the unit of analysis should be the project and not the process.

150201-pmwj31-wideman-IMAGEIn Part 2 of last month’s Musings we actually get to discuss the meaning of “scope” and suggest that people do not have to slavishly follow “official” glossary terms, so long as they state what they mean!

Our Guest, Angelo Baratta, traces the evolution of project management through the ages in Business Process Types 1, 2 & 3, and discovers that what we face today can be much more complex.

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.
