It’s hard to believe that another year is behind us. And what a year it’s been at Project Times. We started out as a quarterly, became a monthly in late spring, and here we are now, coming to you twice a month.
In this issue Chris Vandersluis takes us back to the Cold War in his piece Perk Up for PERT, PERT being an early and successful programmatic approach to project scheduling used in the 50s and early 60s. On a recent visit to Australia, he found PERT alive and well and surmises that it will soon reappear in North America.
Ben Snyder sends us Dispatches from the PM Front Lines with his advice that it makes sense to get back to basics from time to time. He believes it’s especially important when you’re in or near the front lines of the project action. Among other things he discusses the impact of project politics on getting the job done.
Our bloggers are once again offering their take on topical PM subjects. Our discussion forums are ongoing and we hope you’ll contribute.
Finally, we’d like to thank you for joining us during the year and wish you a happy, relaxing and safe holiday. And, of course, a great ’08!
