141031-pmwl-wideman-MAXIn Part 3 of Robert Goatham’s Guest paper on Lessons in Learning, he claims that it is possible to train people in higher order thinking skills — in spite of strong resistance, that is to be expected.

In Part 4 of our Paper on Defining Project Success, we summarize contributors’ thoughts on project success, and provide suggestions for resolving the main issues.

In Part 3 of our Musings on Implementing a Standard Project Management Methodology, Larry differs from Max on his views of the project life span. The project life span is not the project; it is the project that passes through the required (governance) life span. He has other differences and questions.

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.
