New project management articles published on the web during the week of August 30-September 5, 2010.  We read all of this stuff so you don’t have to!  Recommended:

  • Malcom Wheatley writes in the September issue of PM Network on eliciting and leveraging the non-work related talents of your team members.  In the same issue, Richard King writes about integrating information security into your project.
  • Loran Walker posted a book review on the Capella Project Management Roundtable: Titanic Lessons for IT Projects.  You guessed it, the book analyzes the famously doomed ship from the perspective of a failed project.

  • David Winograd reports on the use of iPads in a new project management course at Notre Dame on The Unofficial Apple Weblog.
