Project Management Tips

I spoke at the Twin Cities North Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals group last Friday. The topic was Project Management, which is definitely something of interest to me. I focused on 3 key areas:

  • Up-front planning and estimating. Check out my estimating article here - this is mostly what I covered.
  • Compare your efforts against your plan and adjust as necessary. Be honest with yourself about how you are acutally doing. Don't convince yourself you can "catch up" if it isn't really true.
  • Communicate regularly with your team. Some good project collaboration software includes Basecamp, GoPlan, and Unfuddle.

Now you don't have to be sorry you missed my talk!
