Wideman Website updates announced for October 2016

 

PM EDUCATION NEWS

1 October 2016 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, www.maxwideman.com.  According to Max:

150701-pmwj36-wideman-PHOTOThis month our Musings looks at green project management and questions just exactly what does the “green” part of the label mean, and to what extent is it really relevant to managing a project?

You would think that Defining the term “project” in the context of project management would be fundamental to understanding the workings of the PM discipline. Unfortunately, such is not the case. A recent blog by Dr. Lynda Bourne describes the history, the problem and how that could be solved.

So our Paper this month picks up on Lynda’s work and tries to take it a step further by analyzing the pronouncements of 34 different sources extracted from the Wideman Comparative Glossary of Project Management Terms. The findings are instructive but a final recommendation still eludes us.

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.

Have you seen Max’s book A Management Framework for Project, Program and Portfolio Integration?  For information or to order a copy, visit http://www.maxwideman.com/papers/framework_book/intro.htm.  Do you have a project management question? Find the answer at: http://www.maxwideman.com.
