The Art of Managing Projects

Nice little podcast here with Scott Berkun, the author of The Art of Project Management. It’s really short, so give it a listen if this stuff interests you.

What’s nice about Scott’s take on project management that it seems quite realistic. Which is refreshing. He takes things like politics, power, execs, and egos seriously when he talks about managing projects, developers, schedules, budgets, and everything else that comes into play. So much to learn. He’s got some interesting stories from Microsoft, too. 🙂

Scott’s web site is full of resources for project managers. I’m participating in his PM Clinic forum now. It’s interesting to exchange ideas and information with other PMs across the industry.
