Carnival of Project Management #17

Welcome to the February 25, 2008 edition of carnival of project management.

It's my first time hosting and there were tons of submissions (OK, I admit that I do not know the average weight of a submission, and therefore, technically, I cannot say tons, but trust me, there were literally scores of them). I selected the dozen or so which were most appropriately "Project Management-ish" and make them available for your consideration. If your posting did not make it, try again. The Carnival moves back to Elizabeth Harrin's PM4Girls blog for the next issue.

Joshua C. Karlin presents Powerful Yet Reasonable Goals posted at Marketing & Fundraising Ideas
Although not directly related to PM, the messages here for PMs are powerful and applicable especially as you are forming your team and making them aware of "what success looks like".

Bhupendra Khanal presents Why are you a failure? posted at Analytics Bhupe, saying, "Growth is not impulsive but its continuous rising."

GreatManagement presents Get Rid Of Procrastination Once And For All posted at The GreatManagement Blog, saying, "Everyone suffers from procrastination at some stage in their lives."

Life. Money. Development. presents Exercises for Keeping a Young Mind posted at Life. Money. Development..

Michael Bass presents How a manager can turn employees into a team posted at Debt Prison, saying, "Are you the type of person that intelligent, educated, positive people will want to work for? Are you a happy person that is easy to get along with while still demanding the utmost in satisfaction for your customers? Can you work with a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, leading them in a common goal of teamwork and success?"

Pawel Brodzinski presents Pawel Brodzinski on Software Project Management: Good Post Mortem posted at Software Project Management, saying, "What makes a good post mortem. And when you can know a post mortem was good."

Anthony Mersino presents Nobody Really Manages Projects - Not Even You posted at EQ4PM, saying, "Sorry I didn't make the cutoff for the January Carnival!"


ProjectsPossible presents Creating a Manageable Work Breakdown Structure Projects Possible posted at Projects Possible, saying, "As a rookie to intermediate project manager I have always found the WBS to be one of the most challenging pieces of a project to get nailed down to the satisfaciton of the team members and the sponsor. This article discusses a methodology that slims down the WBS so that it is more empowering and not a major clerical task."

Rich Maltzman, PMP presents The biology of assumptions posted at Scope crêpe.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of
