PM EDUCATION NEWS

1 July 2015 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular and educational project management website, http://www.maxwideman.com/. According to Max:

150701-pmwj36-wideman-PHOTOThis month in In Papers this month we examine Glen Alleman’s book Performance Based Project Management – Increasing the Probability of Project Success. This book describes: How to clearly define the purpose of the project; How to construct the artifacts that represent that clarity; and How to measure the performance of the technical outcomes. This book is particularly suited to those in the hi-tech industries.

In Musings, author John Brinkworth helps us to understand the difference between “Business-As-Usual” management and “Project Management” and hence the challenge of Bridging the Business/Project Divide. We’ve added what we think should be done about that!

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.
