Wideman PM Website updates announced for December 2018



1 December 2018 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular and educational project management website, www.maxwideman.com.  According to Max:

This month we have the following additions:

PapersProject Management Body of Knowledge Revisited, 2018. This Paper is essentially a repeat of what I wrote over 30 years ago when PMI was “inventing” the “PMBOK” (1986-7). It sets out our project management expectations of those days. Read it in conjunction with this month’s Musings – A Look Back – where I make the comparison with where we are today. 12/18

Musings — It is typically a valuable exercise to look back over the years to examine how you got to where you are today. So this month I Look Back at the Original PMBOK document and draw some comparisons between our project management expectations of over 30 years ago, and compare that with where we are today. Best to read this Musings in conjunction with our paper: PMBOK Revisited – December 2018
