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)

According to an email from the publishers [my bold added]:
… our organization has put together a comprehensive resource for project managers interested in the PMP certification, which is a key component of professional advancement in the field, worldwide (it would also be useful to students interested in careers in project management). What distinguishes us is that we’re not a vendor of PMP exam prep resources, nor affiliated with any of them (nor are we affiliated with PMI, which created the PMP certification). Therefore we can provide a resource that’s both thorough and unbiased. Our site’s main writer is Allen Green, MS, PMP, PgMP, a published author on program management who’s also got experience writing PMP exam prep resources…”
