Project Management For You with Rich Maltzman (@RichEarthPM)

October 16, 2014

_podcastTemplateWelcome to the fourteenth episode of the Project Management for You series!

This series will run every weekday, for 4 weeks. Get ready for a ton of great conversations around Project Management principles, ideas, tools, and techniques.

Today I bring the sustainable Rich Maltzman on to the show to get his take on Project Management.

We will cover:

  • How would you define Project Management to the lay person?
  • What is the least people need to know about Project Management to start on the path of getting things done?
  • What are the stages of bringing an idea to reality?
  • If you could recommend one technique from the PM world to the masses, what would it be and where can we learn it
  • Managing projects often means working with other people. What’s the best way to know when and what to delegate, and to compel people to collaborate on a project?
  • What are some tips for those who want to learn and use project management to get things done?

As this podcast series “airs,” I am also running a Kickstarter campaign to help me write and publish my first book, Project Management for You.

To visit the campaign, click here.

If you believe my podcasts have brought you value, I would like to ask you to consider being a backer of this campaign.

As with every Kickstarter campaign, if the goal fund is not met, then no fund is released… It’s all or nothing!

I have put a lot of effort into this project, and I would love for you to participate as a backer.

Thanks in advance!
