Mastering Project Management Skills, Resources, Information, & Tools are keys to Your Success!

Mastering Project Management Skills - you find your project management often rewarding and fulfilling, and at times frustrating and filled with risk and uncertainty. I am just like you, and as the saying goes:

"Been there, done that and have the t-shirt to prove it."

So, WELCOME Project Managers!

Search for Project Management Skills Source

As a long time Project Manager, I have always looked for and wanted an objective source for Project Management skills, resources, information and tools.  After years of not finding an informational website for Project Managers, I decided to create one.

So, consider this website to be your source for practical, experienced answers and insight to your Project Management questions and concerns.

This is unbiased, realistic, actionable advice and guidance as you navigate the day-to-day issues and uncertainties as a PM.

Think of these Project Management Skills and Resources as your "desktop reference" for:

  • Templates and tools ("When do I use them?")
  • Certification information
  • Information on which professional organization is right for you
  • Process-related examples, such as the project life cycle, and a few industry illustrations
  • "How-to" suggestions and Q&A options
  • Recommendations regarding tools, software, and courses
  • Perspectives on leadership, methodologies, and best practices - such as establishing a PMO
  • Outsourcing and trend information, so you are best prepared to address these issues from a business perspective

..... and most importantly - COMING SOON ...

  • A forum for one-on-one discussion and counsel

Importance of Mastering Project Management Skills Such as These?

To provide structure and predictability to a set of activities, whose successful accomplishment achieves a business objective and facilitates change within the organization.

Simply, the successful Project Manager facilitates the integration of the effects of business change, a project.

Easy to say, sometimes difficult to do. You, as the PM are the change agent who must:

  • use your experience,
  • directly involve others,
  • follow a methodology,
  • regularly measure performance,
  • develop a plan,
  • work the plan,
  • lead a team of people to accomplish objectives, and

... at the end of the day, you MUST prove to the business that you have achieved the goals and objectives, as originally agreed.

Sound Familiar?

All projects follow a similar pattern - the project life cycle

However, even with all of the methodologies, templates, resources, and software tools, your success, and that of your team, boils down to experience, communication and your overall project management skills.
