Project management artefacts and the emotions they evoke by Stephen Jon Whitty

K reviews another Whitty article at 8 till late.
What did I get from it?  11 topics to explore further;
  1. Project
  2. Deadline
  3. Team
  4. Professional persona of a project manager
  5. Gantt Chart
  6. WBS
  7. Iron Triangle
  8. S-Curve
  9. Project management post-nominals (certifications, degrees, titles)
  10. PMBOK Guide & Project management methodologies
  11. Professional bodies

Whitty's paper suggests that each of these topics generate an emotional response in project managers. Presumably the same goes for most people on the project team, and they key stakeholders as well.
