Welcome to the August/September 2009 edition of carnival of project management. It actually wasn’t too hard this time to whittle out the irrelevant entries. Maybe BlogCarnival is cracking down on automated submissions. I have selected the following for your entertainment:
nissim ziv presents Project Management Interview Questions and Answers posted at Job Interview Guide, saying, “The project manager can be considered to be the key person and the most important part of the product cycle or the project life cycle in any company by far. This article provides wide-ranging project management interview questions and answers for project manager (PMO, and for product manager) position.”
Rich Maltzman, PMP presents Is the world ready for earthpm.com ? posted at Scope crêpe, explaining that this is the formal kickoff of earthpm.com – a site devoted to “the intersection of Green and Project Management”. Rich says, “It is restricted to those who are from Earth, care about Earth, and also run projects (mainly on Earth).” I interviewed a space scientists for my book, and his projects were mainly not on Earth.
GreatManagement presents The Questions To Ask Yourself Before You Publicly Speak posted at Great Management. “You have been asked to present. Oh no.” Some useful reminder tips in here.
Simon Stapleton presents Does Facebook Flunk Your Performance Review? posted at ACE Your Performance Review, saying, “Time Magazine recently caused a stir when they published the results of research that strongly suggested that Facebook (and other social networking sites) caused graduate students to suffer lower grades.” This is a topic I spoke about at the BPUG Congress earlier this year – watch what you put online!
Jesse Meijers presents The Art of Question Asking posted at Jesse Meijers, which I liked as it prompts us to ask questions in different ways – great for requirements gathering and working with stakeholders.
Mateusz Jasny presents How to earn PDUs for PMP recertification FAQ – part2 posted at PMIT.PL Blog. I didn’t like the layout of this blog, but if you want a summary of gaining PDUs this post seems useful.
Darwin presents 9 Great Project Management Tools and Tips posted at Darwin’s Finance, saying, “A practical and actionable list of Project Management tips and best practices that you can immediately implement in your work and leadership style.” Nothing radical here, but general common sense stuff.
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the October/November edition of carnival of project management using our carnival submission form. It will be published on 23 October.11/09/2009
