Meet Laurel: A Very PMP Wedding

February 17, 2012

I have confessed before to planning my own wedding in Microsoft Project. I also interviewed a wedding planner for my first book, Project Management in the Real World, about fixed date projects. After all, a wedding is a project with an immovable end date. So I was delighted to discover a blog that blends project […]

News roundup

September 5, 2009

I was interviewed recently by Pawel Brodzinski, who writes the great Software Project Management blog.  The interview was around project management approaches and forms part of a series he is running.  He actually asked really hard questions!  Read the interview here. Wellingtone (the people who do the salary surveys but occasionally send out pointless reports) […]

Now in Spanish!

July 19, 2009

I’m pleased to say that I’ve begun a collaboration with Think Like a Project Manager, the blog from La Salle University in Barcelona. I’d like to take the credit for doing the translations myself, but sadly my Spanish only extends to ordering churros and chocolate caliente. The first piece that La Salle have chosen to […]

February 16, 2009

I had lunch today with Soma and her sister.  It’s Soma’s first trip to the UK and she has been out and about seeing the sites of London: Buckingham Palace, the parks, the London Eye, a river cruise – packing more tourist things into 10 days than I have in the 18 months I have […]

At the BPUG Congress

February 11, 2009

I gave my presentation at the second annual Best Practice User Group International Congress today: PM 2.0 – new media and online networking for project managers. I was the closing keynote address and when I finished there were no questions – none at all!  Either I had bamboozled everyone with talk of new fangled technology […]

Redesign project: complete (well, almost)

January 11, 2009

I can now understand how the people I met at Google had an unrelenting approach to work: coding is addictive. I got up this morning and started. I got dressed around 2.30pm and that’s only because I had only had two cups of tea and a mushroom all morning and I didn’t want to cook […]

A podcast on peer reviews

November 9, 2008

I’ve just listened to me on the Project Management Podcast talking about peer reviews.  Thankfully Cornelius wasn’t videoing – in real life when we were recording this interview (in the exhibition hall at the PMI Congress in Denver) I was waving my arms around!  It was fun doing the recording ‘live’ – we were talking […]

A conversation with Kristen

November 5, 2008

Kristen LaBrosse, VP Product Development at Cheetah Learning, and I have been emailing each other recently.  I saw Michelle LaBrosse (not sure how they are related but it would be a huge coincidence if two people called LaBrosse ended up at the same company, so they must be) collect an award at the PMI Global […]
