Wideman Project Management Website updates announced for August 2014



31 July 2014 – Vancouver, BC, Canada – Max Wideman has announced the monthly updates to his popular project management website, http://www.maxwideman.com/. According to Max this month:

140731-pmwj25-wideman-IMAGELast month in our Musings we set the stage for a discussion on What is project success? This month in Papers we start Part 1 of a four-part discussion on the issue of Defining Project Success. This long LinkedIn series of exchanges engendered strong opinions for different points of view that we found most valuable.

Our Guest, Jamal Moustafaev, explains How to Write a Great Project Plan for any medium-sized project, and how to adjust for larger or smaller.

In Musings this month we agree with Danielle Smallwood (of method123.com) that we should ask: Is it Time to Scrap Project Status Reports? We think perhaps “Project Expectation Reports” would be more useful?

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.
