Top project management bloggers to follow in 2018
I remember someone saying “Managing projects is no less than running a small city”! It is, indeed. A number of responsibilities and tasks are put on the shoulders of the project managers: Dealing with resource limitations & time constraints, monitoring the execution, properly mitigating risks and liaising with different stakeholders, just to name a few.
As businesses grow, the proper project management is crucial to business performance and growth. Yet, Gallup Business Journal reported discouraging figures of only 2.5% of companies successfully completed their projects. This challenge even sounds more perplexing to startups and sole project manager.
Fortunately, good news to project managers and specialists: You’re not on your own! There are many projects management bloggers who offer experiences, hands-on practices, articles, industry news that helps alleviate hardship in project management.
Let’s take a look at some Project Management (PM) blogs that eContractHub think you should definitely follow this year:
