The program/project management field is continuing to grow as it spreads to new industries, organizations and countries.  Getting more experienced practitioners and experts to share their knowledge can help accelerate the process, while creating value for authors and readers alike.”

“We hope readers will support our authors, read their works and offer some feedback,” Pells adds.  “Most author profiles at the end of their articles contain an email address.  If not, readers can email a letter-to-the-editor to me, which we can share with the author and publish for all to see.”
