I’ve been a project manager for most of my professional life. Yes, I gladly deal with numbers, scope documents, spreadsheets, and the things that make many people go cross-eyed. To many people, the work (and the role) feels really robotic. But it’s not. There’s a human side to project management, because people make projects happen, and people solve the problems (or prevent them from happening).
I am absolutely thrilled about this project, because it will help people who unintentionally get stuck in a variety of common project problems. Project Management for Humans is designed to provide project management guidance through stories, practical tips, shortcuts, and templates for full-time project managers as well as people who assume the PM role in their design, development, UX, and content strategy roles. I’ll address everything from creating solid project estimates to creating great project plans, and tackling the most difficult communications. My hope is to make it a fun read and a helpful reference.
I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me, but I am so ready to do this!
