The first official weekly reading list on Project Management Basics. Hooray!
In January, a lot of things change. Want it or not – you do evaluate your past year, your achievements.
Hopefully, you make decisions and act upon that evaluation.
So, below you will find topics and ideas worth your time in January 2019.
Fix your goal-setting before you even start
BIG IDEA: New Year’s resolutions do not work. They don’t persist. In February or March, you are giving up on your goals. So, if you really want to make it right this time – listen to this podcast.
A refresher on Brainstorming Technique
BIG IDEA: Again, it’s the start of the year. So, you will have to brainstorm quite a lot these days. Goal-setting, retrospectives, business development plans, product roadmaps. You need a refresher on Brainstorming.
Select five blogs to follow in 2019
BIG IDEA: Reading List of reading lists. My Idea is simple. I scan through dozens of blogs on project management and leadership. But I follow closely and read everything only from about five of them. My recommendation is that you need to find such five blogs for yourself.
I hope mine will be on your list;)
Is it Time to do a Project Clean-Up?
BIG IDEA: Let’s face it. Quite often we do quick hires. We stuff projects. We take people that a company can get right now and we put them on the project. Without thinking whether they fit or not.
Stakeholders do Resist. Deal With it!
BIG IDEA: There are several types of stakeholders that react differently to a change. If you apply an appropriate approach to that person – you will have better chances to succeed. The article lists ten such types.
OK, that’s five articles. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
