Trying to develop a project-based organization? Check out this latest listing at my Project Management FREEBIES website:
[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.]
Just published! My new book, Worth Sharing: Essays & Tools to Help Project Managers & Their Teams, is a 300 page eclectic compilation of practical PM tools, thought-provoking PM essays and suggestions for helping individual project managers and their teams stay sane while delivering good quality finished products. It consists of 54 Chapters and hundreds of live links to additional PM resources. Most of the chapters were originally published as blog posts through my websites and have never before been released in book form. (See http://worth-sharing.net for info on all my websites, blog posts, videos, etc.) A few chapters include some important, classic excerpts from my previous books.
The book is divided into six major Parts, including:
- Part 1: The Meaning of Project Management (3 Chapters)
- Part 2: PM Techniques (12 Chapters)
- Part 3: Working with Your Team & Maintaining Your Sanity (12 Chapters)
- Part 4: Peace of Mind (12 Chapters)
- Part 5: PM Leadership and Vision (7 Chapters)
- Part 6: Of PM Skills and How They Are Acquired (8 Chapters)

From the Alison website: “This free Business Skills course introduces the learner to the world of corporate management.”
I’ve been a big fan of Alison’s free online training for some time now. And this latest course to appear in my radar is an ambitious attempt to cover a lot of compex issues and practices related to managing large business enterprises. If you work for a large corporation, or intend to do so, this course will provide you with a great introduction to the dynamics of the corporate environment and the issues faced by managers working in this environment. My review and a complete list of the many topics covered in this comprehensive course follows.
