Worth Sharing: Essays & Tools to Help Project Managers & Their Teams

[Caveat: This is my book! So there is (duh!) some conflict of interest in my recommending it to you! However, I honestly believe it’s full of good stuff that any self-directed learner can use to develop project management (PM) skills & insights. And since it’s FREE to read all 300 pages online, what do you have to lose?! — Mike Greer, owner/editor of this blog.]

It consists of 54 Chapters and hundreds of live links to additional PM resources.
