Alex S. Brown News: Papers and Events

Alex S. Brown, PMP IPMA-C

Announcing some news:

** The site now has “Design Your Build Process” up in the Articles area. It was published in the First Quarter 2002 ISSIG Review, the newsletter of the PMI Information Systems SIG

** I was selected to speak on May 6th at the PMI/NJ Regional Symposium on the topic “Project Management Personality & Skill Types”. The site has the full paper, and links for anyone interested in attending.

** “Of Benchmarks and Scorecards: Reporting on Multiple Projects” will be in the proceedings for PMI 2002 Symposium in San Antonio, TX. I am an alternate speaker, so I may be chosen to present my paper as well.

** IEEE Computer Society announced a new certification program. It is called the Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) Program. It is comparable to the Project Management Professional (PMP) program offered by PMI. My site has only very basic information, but expect more detail soon. Please e-mail me with any questions about the program.

Feel free to e-mail me with any requests for material to add to the site. So far I have had a request for an article on Release Management. I will also be writing on CSDP, and preparing for the PMI/NJ and PMI Symposium in the upcoming months.
