Wideman Project Management Website updates announced for June 2015



1 June 2015 – Ontario, Canada – Max Wideman has announced updates to his popular and very educational project management website, http://www.maxwideman.com/. According to Max:

150601-pmwj35-wideman-PHOTOThis month in Papers, we review work by Morten Fangel who presents a very different view of managing a project in his new book: Proactive Project Management. As he explains: “Being proactive is both common sense and universally accepted … To plan before execution; to see potential risks before they occur; to focus on the whole rather than single parts. But many examples from practice show that being proactive in this way is not at all natural”!  Morten explains why and what to do about it.

In Musings we question the conduct of post project Reviews of Project Success. We offer some considerations on what to measure, how to store the data, distinguishing between project management and product development, and How Soon to evaluate after project completion.

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.
