First Ever #PMFlashBlog
I have been asked to participate in the first ever #PMFlashBlog. What is a flash blog? This was an idea conceived of by Shim Marom who is a blogger at quantmleap.com. There will be 70+ project management bloggers who will write about the topic “What does project management mean to me? A Project Manager’s sermon.” It is called a flash blog because not only will we be providing our own perspectives about the same topic, we will also release our post at exactly 0100 hours GMT on September 25th, 2013.
One of the participants, Henny Portman, put together a world map which illustrates which parts of the globe are represented by my fellow flash bloggers. If you are interested to see who is participating, check out the list at the bottom of this post.
This is an interesting topic and experience for me because in the last month or so I have repeatedly started and stopped writing a blog on this very subject. In joining this event, I can finally dust off my thoughts and share with you what project management has done for me in my professional career. I would also like to take a unique approach by including your thoughts in my blog post. If you are willing to allow me to quote you in my article, please leave your perspective in the comments of this post. Answer the question: “What does project management meant to me?”.
I look forward to sharing my thoughts along with yours in this flash blog. I hope you enjoy it on September 25th at 0100 hours GMT.
