PM PUBLISHING NEWS
31 December 2012 – Vancouver, BC, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, www.maxwideman.com. According to Max:
In Papers we examine Governance in the Project Management World, its potential role and the larger environment in which projects exist. We also recommend appropriate Guidelines for Project Portfolio Management Governance that sets it apart from the governance of a single project.
Our Guest Arnab Banerjee describes the successful introduction of a New PM System in a Major Capital Programmes Directorate for the London Underground complex (case study).
In Musings, Kevin Aguanno writes us to describe how a pop music song helped him resolve issues with a difficult project sponsor, see Good Advice from an Experienced Project Manager. In our Project Management 101 course, Lesson 9 describes Corporate Management’s Responsibilities.
