Wideman PM Website updates for June 2017



1 June 2017 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, http://www.maxwideman.com/. According to Max:

Good news about the Wideman Comparative Glossary of Project Management Terms! After several years of dedicated effort, we have finally assembled a new collection of project management and product development terms, presented in a number of distinct domains. For more information, see our latest Paper titled: What’s new in Glossary v6.1? This is an exciting change in direction.

In Part 6 of his Guest paper, Mark Seely concludes with three further valuable appendices. In Appx B: The Performance Dashboard designed to fully inform both decision-makers as well as the project team; Appx C: Human Characteristics provides a 5-step ladder of characteristics suited to each of his five organizational levels; and Appx D: Contracting Considerations appropriate to each of the five levels.

Visitors to this web site should note that Mark Seely’s whole series provides bold insights into project management, and valuable guidance on how to confront different levels of maturity or complexity in the whole domain of project management activity.

This month, Darya Duma contributes to our Musings with her “Daydreams” on Sustainability in Project Management.
