Project Manager Gift Idea

Alex S. Brown, PMP IPMA-C

Project managers are hard to shop for, especially in the holiday gift season. To help with your gift-giving, I am offering quantity discounts on the Project Charter LIVE! DVD. Buy one for $48, two for just $12 more, five or more for $25 each, and 20 or more for $20 each. Buy one for everyone on your team. This special quantity discount will be in effect from now until the end of 2008 at the Real-Life Projects store.

Buy a set of the DVDs for the project managers in your PMO, your local professional group, or the project managers on your gift list. If you were thinking of buying a DVD for yourself, buy two for just a few dollars more and give one to someone you know.

In the US, the holiday gift-shopping season traditionally begins they day after Thanksgiving, on the day called “Black Friday”, November 28 this year. People rush out to stores for sales and special offers. On-line shopping has lead to “Cyber Monday”, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, December 1 this year. Many people begin their on-line shopping on that Monday, after finding that they could not get what they wanted in-person at the stores.

This special promotion is timed to help project managers get through a rough holiday season. Many people and companies are cutting back. I hope people take advantage of this offer as a way to give a gift or to say, “Thank you,” without having to break the bank.
