Wideman Project Management Website updates announced for December 2016



30 November 2016 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular project management website, www.maxwideman.com. According to Max:

141031-pmwl-wideman-MAXThis month we have reviewed a great book: Procuring Successful Mega-Projects by Louise Hart, and how to arrange major government contracts without ending up in court. You will find it in Papers. This book is remarkably easy to read and provides invaluable advice for procurement in any major project.

We’ve also added a case study in Papers that describes the Olympic Village Project Fiasco. This project was successful in its first assignment but finally ended up losing a lot of money. An interesting study in political interference with a lot of valuable lessons!

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.
