Episode 028 - Surprise! Part 1

Are you a new project manager or just play one on TV? This episode is for you! Recently, I had a fun conversation with Bas de Baar, a Project Manager from The Netherlands and author of the book “Surprise! You’re a Software Project Manager!“. Bas wrote the book for people with little or no project management experience but are expected to manage a software development project. It is chocked full of practical advice on where to start, what to focus on and how to get through your first project! Don’t let the title of the book fool you, though. This book isn’t just about managing a software development project. It addresses the core concepts and skills to manage any type of project.

For more information on Bas, go to his website www.softwareprojects.org! Enjoy!

If you’d like to check out MindManager in the meantime, visit MindJet’s website and download either their 5-day or 21-day demo version.
