Site Highlights
PM Light™ Fast Ramp Course
Are your management techniques practical and strong without being off-putting or overpowering? Do your teams resist any hint of process, and balk at any mention of project management? Do you wonder how to make all this supposedly important PM stuff actually work across radically different projects and teams? PM Light™ can help you figure out which tools and techniques make sense for bringing just enough project management to your teams. Fridays, May 9-June 27. 16 PDUs.
 Aligning and Adapting to Partner Perspectives
This guideline helps project managers and program managers on complex projects facilitate productive discussions about the assumptions and perceptions different organizations have about each other. Identifying similarities and common ground, as well as differences that could cause confusion or misunderstandings, helps the teams build trust and move forward successfully.
 Team Member Introductions
Team dynamics will ultimately define your teamís success. The process outlined in this guideline will accelerate your team's "getting to know you" process so they will become more productive with less time trying to figure each other out.

Jeanne Bradford on Achieving High-Performing Project Teams

Cinda has started a new feature aimed at mining the wisdom and know-how of a variety of experienced managers. Her first interview is with Jeanne Bradford of TCGen. Jeanne has lots to say about what individual PMs must be ready to take responsibility for, and what executives must do as well, to create cross-functional project teams that actually live up to the promise.
Musings on Things that Matter
Cinda has finally been convinced to air and share some of her more casual thoughts, questions, ahas, encouragement, good books, funny stories, or even rants. Her "Musings" blog is designed to be thought-provoking, encouraging, entertaining, inspiring, and collaborative.
