New project management articles published on the web during the week of September 6-12, 2010. We read all of this stuff so you don’t have to! Recommended:
- Apropos of nothing, Andrew Makar posted a link to a YouTube video of what he refers to as a “project management butterfly knife pen.” Sounds like just the piece of kit for the cool-impaired.
- Got an iPhone? Studying for the PMP exam? Not surprisingly, there’s an app for that.
- Ann Drinkwater gets us chanting, “Repeat after me, the schedule is not the project plan.” And once we’ve got that down, Kathlika Thomas tells us how to create a project schedule.
- Rick Freedman compares traditional and Agile project management estimation techniques in a post on TechRepublic.
- Marco Mulder writes about the difference between task driven, feature driven, and value driven project management, in the context of Agile project management.
- Marco’s post apparently inspired Trond Wingard to write about value management as the missing area in the PMBOK. Maybe I’ll respond to both of them in a post of my own.
- The APM group has published the results of a study into industry perceptions of the efficacy of the Prince2 project management method, mostly in the UK and Oz. Here’s a link to the press release, and here’s a link to the 89-page study.
- Anil Chopra reports on a conference in Bangalore on cloud computing and project management. If I can find a more detailed summary of the proceedings, I’ll post a link to it. In the meantime, here’s a link to V. Srinivasa Rao’s slide presentation.
- Samad Aidane posted a three-part MP3 recording of his interview with Doug DeCarlo, author of “eXtreme Project Management: Using Leadership, Principles and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility” on his Guerrilla Project Management blog.
