For many years I have talked about the components of project management as being like elements. Each has its own essential, indivisible nature, and you can combine them to form useful compounds – I will develop that thought in the New Year.
My new book, How to Manage a Great Project, is due out soon and is designed to help new and inexperienced Project Managers working on small and medium sized projects. I hope it will also have a few nuggets of interest, even to well-seasoned PMs.
While I was writing it, it occurred to me that, if there are elements, they must form a periodic table. To celebrate the upcoming launch, I have prepared one. I offer it to you in the spirit of fun and, if you enjoy it, please do put it up on walls and copy it to other people.
