*** New Speech Recording: Get Your Senior Executives Excited about Project Management ***

At the Tampa Bay Florida chapter in November, we discussed "Introducing Project Management in Your Organization". This presentation covered the role of project management in implementing strategy, and showed ways to get your senior executives interested in and bought into project management. The full presentation, plus audience Q&A and discussion, is available now.


**** Web Seminar: Difficult Project Sponsors (8 January 2009) ****

Everyone has a horror story of a problem sponsor. Do not become a "victim" of your project sponsor ever again. There are ways to cope and even thrive as a project manager when working with difficult sponsors.

For instance, find out how Alex dealt with a project manager who would not let him finish sentences, even in his own status meetings...about the project idea that was doomed from the start. You can learn to deal with these types of problems and worse.

*** Your Podcast and Video Gift Delivered ***

Over the holiday season, I was hard at work converting old speeches to new formats. Five speeches are now available in a cornucopia of formats: * Audio on the web site
* Video on the web site
* Podcast (audio, video, MP3, iPod Video, AVI, and more)

If you had trouble viewing the any of the old speeches on strategy, charters, or even that classic project manager joke, take a look at the new "speeches" page on the web site. With a portable music or video player, you can even automatically subscribe to the podcast.

Have a great 2009!
