My favorite project management links and websites

I want to thank those of you who have started reading the Blog and hopefully have found something useful in the posts.  But I am by no means the only “gray haired PM” in cyberspace.  I am grateful to the many project management veterans who have taken the time to share their experience and insight with the PM community. Along with the professional PM sites such as the Project Management Institute, which offers the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – 4th Edition (available from Amazon hopefully soon), there is a wealth of PM information available on-line to help both the fledgling project manager and the seasoned professional. So in response to several of your emails, here are some of my favorite sites and blogs:

Project Connections provides for free access to papers, case studies, and almost 50 PM templates. They also have premium subscription services. You will find articles on lessons learned and best practices from people who are or have been project managers and lived to tell about it.

Projects at Work is an online magazine for project management professionals. It includes news, advice, and commentaries relevant to all aspects of project management.

Project Smart has an easy to navigate, topic references site with 100’s of articles and white papers on: Agile Project Management, Best Practices, Case Studies, Change Management, Communication and much, much more. This site serves as a useful and comprehensive knowledge base on all things related to project management.

PM Forum is all about international project management. From the PM forum, you can also access PM World Today. Each issue contains viewpoints by project managers, featured papers, case studies, and Tips and Techniques. PM World Today is a free subscription.

Project Perfect provides insight, worldwide commentary, and a products/services forum for project managers.

PM Today is a subscription service with informative articles on all aspects of project management. Although a subscription fee is associated with access, you can get 3 months free to check it out for yourself.

Cognitive Technologies Library is my own company’s resource library with lots of free white papers and guides for your reading and use.

Raven’s Brain is a great blog maintained by Raven Young where she posts on Project & Program Management, Leadership, Tech & Business, Personal Growth, Professional Development, Soft Skills and anything else that sparks her interest.

Journyx’s Project Management Blog is a great place to find posts from many authors on a wide variety of project topics.  And if you get to read one of Curt’s posts – it will always make you smile!
And lest we not overlook the need for your weekly dose of PM humor, don’t forget to check out Scott Adam’s Dilbert Strips.

While there are many more really helpful PM sites, I hope these examples will get you started.

If you have some favorite PM sites, please add them to the list via your comments.

    Also check out our blog based on our nine years of experience as a web development and design agency. It is mostly stories about small business project management experiences and is more of a non traditional approach to PM.

    Nice post. I’d like to also suggest PM Tips at http://www.pmtips.net. Very useful real-life and real experience project management information featuring 40-50 fresh new posts every month with solid readership and lots of feedback and comments. Everything from PM experiences and methodology, to cloud computing and agile development, to job postings and consulting tips are available on the PM Tips blog site. Check it out…thanks.

    Good list. I just started one of my own to capture my publishings and ramblings in the PM space. They are educational and meant to be entertaining as well. Let me know what you think (or even subscribe in the upper right of the page)

    Check out my entertaining article relating Project Management to Kung Fu movies…

  6. The Accidental Project Manager – Part 1 « Fear No Project – A Project Management Blog Says:

    [...] Learn what being a project manager is about from professionals. One place to start is the Project Management Institute which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the profession of project management (Most of the time – I will cover that one in another post). Membership offers guidance and resources including PM Network, Project Management Journal, and PMI Today. But mostly it is the PM Body of Knowledge that they have nurtured that gives the practitioners something to guide the profession.  There are many other valuable resources available and I have listed some of my favorite project management blogs and websites in a past post – Bruce’s Favorites.

  10. Defending the Project Management Profession « Fear No Project – A Project Management Blog Says:
