Happy New Year
I sincerely wish all of you and your loved ones love, peace, joy and health for 2013. May you find direction in this changing world that we live in. . “Change is the only constant in the world we live in“.
During the past year I had the opportunity to work with many aspiring project managers/consultants. Many of these contacts resulted in lasting relationships, something I really cherish in my work. I am looking forward to building more lasting relationships in 2013.
Focus for 2013
Based on the feedback I received from many of you I formulated my Vision and Mission as follows:
My vision is to use my 33+ years of experience in project management to help aspiring project managers and consultants to achieve their goals for 2013.
My mission is to achieve this by providing:
- On site training
- Online consulting to project managers in all areas of project management
- eBooks on project management
- Free support as a follow up on all training, consulting and eBooks.
I have received several requests for training for 2013. I am busy finalizing an eBook that will be used in all trainings.This eBook is based the project management seminars I have given and on feedback I have received from many of you. Some more information on training
The training I provide is general/fundamental. Consulting is a follow up on the training with the objective of tailor making a Project Management Manual for your specific business. More information
The eBooks I write are based on questions I receive from aspiring project managers/consultants. The idea is that the eBooks are for you and by you. All my eBooks are reviewed/commented by my readers.
I hope to add a few more Ebooks to my eStore in 2013.
I will continue to offer support as follow-up on all my training, consulting and eBooks. Support is great enhancement to the value of the eBooks and services I offer. Have a question?
There is a price for the eBooks and services, but the support is free.
Case studies are a great way to close the gap between theory and practice. Last year we ran a case study on project management processes. You can download the complete case study here project management processes case study
My target is to run at least two case studies during 2013.
Finding a Job
Finding a job as a project manager remains to be challenge for many. Getting the often required experience creates a chicken or the egg situation: you need experience to get the job, while you need the job to get experience. The approach I usually take in helping people find a job as a project manager, is to scrape up the little experience they have managing little projects and package it as good as possible and include that in your resume. Eventually all do find a job. I offer a resume rewrite service for a nominal fee of USD 42.50. Read the testimonials on this page. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to rewrite your resume or profile. .
Many students contact me to review their thesis. This is a spin-off I never anticipated. However, I enjoy helping students and I have to say that some of them have some very interesting case studies in their thesis.
