max widemanOur Guest, Skip Reedy, provides valuable evidence of the successful use of Critical Chain Project Management that we published in December 2012, with his 777-300ER Derivative Airframe Design case study.

Our Musing takes people to task for not being specific when discussing What is project success?

In Papers we review Ann Pilkington’s Book: Communicating Projects: An End-to-End Guide to Planning, Implementing and Evaluating Effective Communication. We emphasize the word “Effective”, what you really need to know for running a successful project and what they don’t tell you in “standard” texts or courses.

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.
