Herding Cats with Glen Alleman: Episode 79

March 31, 2015

It’s my pleasure once again to bring you a new episode of the Project Management for the Masses podcast!

Every time I have a guest on the show I make sure I think about good questions to ask them so I can get them to share great information with you.  Every once in a while, my guest has such an impressive resume that my main concern when talking with them becomes simply not to sound like a fool! Mr. Alleman is an accomplished scientist and formidable project management, and his insights blew me away.

I’m absolutely humbled to be connected with him and proud to bring this conversation to you.  Enjoy!
