New to Project Management?

So, you’re new to project management. First of all – don’t panic! I still remember my first full project management role. Despite myself, I started to feel a little overwhelmed. But you don’t need to – here are some of my posts that will help you through.

Risks and Issues


  • All Change! – An in-depth look at dealing with change in your project.


  • Feel the Quality – A look at how we decide on quality criteria, and what characteristics those criteria need to have.
  • Continuous Quality – A reminder that the quality of the outputs isn’t an afterthought, it needs to be central to what we do throughout the project.

Ending a Project

  • Your Mistakes Are Valuable – The importance of learning lessons from the problems we encountered and the mistakes we made.
  • Closing Up – What to do when finishing a project, whether the project has reached its natural end or been stopped prematurely.
