Next week I join around 60 international bloggers and project management experts to answer the question: “What does project management mean to me?”
This is a world-first coordinated project management blogging event.
Project Management Flash Blog
The idea, which was conceived by Shim Marom, is to have a large number of bloggers post an article in their respective blogs on the same agreed project management theme. What’s more, each post is published on the same day at the same time. The project management flash blog is on Wednesday, 25th September 2013.
The theme for the project management flash blog is: “What does project management mean to me? A Project Manager’s sermon.”
The image of a sermon was chosen deliberately. It represents an oral delivery with genuine, convincing, rational and emotional content—all required to capture the audiences imagination.
When the Project Management Flash Blog Begins
Publication date is Wednesday, 25th September 2013 at 01:00 UTC. To help you find the project management flash blog on social media sites we will use the tag: #pmflashblog. Throughout the day contributors will hangout on Twitter and Google+.
Where to Read the Project Management Flash Blog
Below is a full list of bloggers and blogs now committed to this project. Each project management flash blog will be listed here after 25th September 2013.
This is the list of blogs who have committed to join in to the pmFlashBlog initiative.
The list is now closed and no new entries would now be accepted.
*Following the release date (25th Sep) the list will be updated again and blogs who have not released a #pmFlashBlog related post will be removed.
I am sure many of us are familiar with this message "It works on my system". I recently got the same answer not from a developer but from the customer service team of the popular loyalty card. As a card member, I couldn't login to my account and reached out the customer care team through their Twitter help service.
Helping you improve your project communications
My career didn't begin in project management. It took a lot of heartache and many dramatic changes to take me along that career path. Life-changing injuries from the Paddington Train Crash in 1999 drove me to become a master of reinvention and a catalyst for change in areas much further than just my personal life.
After my previous posts on Office Politics I got some very interesting reactions from readers. Many of them included the same question: How to be good at Office Politics without getting into unnecessary conflicts? In order to answer this question, we have to understand why engaging in Politics leads to conflicts initially.
I think this book by Tobias is beautifully written. There is real craftmanship in the prose here. The book is made up of independent self contained stories and reflections on various themes related to the Agile Software Development movement. Each one is a parable seeking to impart some of Tobias' wisdom onto the reader.

In 1989 Stephen R. Covery published his seminal work "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People". It's since sold 25m printed copies, 15m audio books, and been translated into 38 languages worldwide. It remains one of the Top 25 business books today.
