Loads of links & plenty of great free resources to help you retool! Check out the full article here.
[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)
You can read the entire book (all 300 pages!) online, for free. And it’s available in paperback & all ebook formats. Get details at my Worth Sharing website!
.. And Why You Should Look to the Clouds for Answers
[I published this several years ago, just in time for the holidays. Decided to make it a regular seasonal “rerun.” I hope you enjoy it, share it with your more argumentative friends & relatives and remember to play nice at all those holiday parties! — MG]
Do you find yourself facing a bunch of holiday parties with people whose political or religious perspectives might be drastically different from your own? Are you dreading those inevitable arguments? This article provides some perspective on:
- The weird and wonderful ways our political and religious views evolve, including:
- The Happy Face Version
- The Waterfall Version
- Why we inevitably clash when we try to argue about politics or religion
- Why it’s pointless to argue about politics or religion
- How you might become an amateur anthropologist and try to see into the “cloud” of personal experiences that make up the other guy’s political or religious vision
- Specific suggestions and Challenges for dealing with your next political or religious argument
(Note: This article, largely because of its several somewhat-complicated & whimsical graphics, didn’t seem to lend itself to the usual audio podcast or blog post. The PDF file presents all these elements in a single, easy to read document. Hope you like it!)
