New PM Articles for the Week of December 20-26

New project management articles published on the web during the week of December 20 – 26, 2010.  We read all of this stuff so you don’t have to!  Recommended:

  • Brad Egeland draws on his vast experience as a consulting project manager to offer three expectations that clients have, but might not share with you.
  • Ty Kiisel puts project management software in historical perspective, and suggests that the “dirty little secret” of modern software is that’s it’s too complicated.
  • Mary Weilage offers a year-end list of Tech Republic’s most popular IT project management downloads of 2010.
  • Bas de Baar, the Project Shrink, writes, “I view projects as a set of social interactions.”  He also refers to project managers as a “human shield” between the sponsor and the software developers.  Definitely a must-read …
  • Peter Taylor, the Lazy Project Manager, shares his New Year’s resolutions.  I like the one about “scaring your kids” by addressing their class.  Peter and Bas need to talk.
  • John Poelstra has put together a list of open source project management tools.
  • Jim De Piante asks, how do you define a successful project management career?
