Wideman PM Website updates announced for February 2019

 

PM EDUCATION NEWS

1 February 2019 – 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:

Breaking News: For the last several months we have been working on a project that we have had in mind for several years now. It is to resurrect the original Project Management Body of Knowledge (dubbed “PMBOK” by me) which was published by the Project Management Institute in 1987. The idea is to make it available as a PDF document.

Remember this publication was before personal computers were readily available, and the PDF file format was not yet invented. The original document has required considerable editorial work to correct grammar, spelling errors and repetitions. It is of interest because it is a statement of project management and not a Guide. As such it contains advice still of value today. Any day now, so stay tuned . . .

Guests — Our Guest this month is Miroslav Anicin who offers Five Indispensable Qualities of Top Project Managers as valuable advice. This should be of interest to those aspiring to manage a significant Intellect type project, such as in the Manufacturing, Information, or High Tech. industries, and do do as a “top project manager”.

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.
