You’ve Got Issues

I’m working on a little something and I’d love to hear from my friends (you). It’s simple. Just answer this one question in the comments below.

What is the one issue that you face often on projects?

Maybe there are two or three. Share them, please. And, if you have the time or the inclination, share how you resolve the issue. If I’d like to use your response for my project, I’ll get in touch.

Thank you!

The Digital Project Management Conversation Continues

A few years ago I thought no one cared about project management, or at least taking about how we operate successful projects. That’s basically why I started this blog. I wanted to start a conversation, or at least be a part of it. But things are changing, and it’s great. Over the past year or so, I’m seeing some amazing contributions to the discussion about how we manage our projects. People from all over the web industry—with specialties in design, development, and PM—are speaking and writing about better ways to get work done. We’re seeing conferences and talks pop up all over about the topic, and industry publications are devoting more space to topics relevant to project management. That’s right, folks, project management is here to stay, and net magazine is a publication that’s willing to publish articles and opinions about it. Continue reading
