February updates announced for Wideman Project Management Website


3 February 2013 – Vancouver, BC, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, www.maxwideman.com.  According to Max:

Our Guest, Gregory Downing observes that “When half of college graduates can’t find jobs, and those of us who do have jobs can barely pay the bills, the system is clearly broken. So, the only solution is to shift to a whole new way of thinking about work and wealth.” Gregory offers 15 surprisingly simple laws that can help anyone become a successful entrepreneur” in his New American Dream.

The search for a Global System for Categorizing Projects is still on but in Musings we point out that managing the technology is not the same as managing the project. In Papers we try to answer the question: What are the fundamental differences between project work and operations work (if any)?

In our Project Management 101 course, Lesson 10 describes in simple basic terms Achieving Project Success.
