PM students

On Tuesday I start another semester of teaching PM to a bunch of students enrolled in a Masters of IT.  I've been doing it for two years so far.  This is my third.

Teaching is an interesting job.  It's tiring lecturing and delivering all the time.  I am still working on maturing my delivery so that there is less talk (by me) and more action (by the students.)  The great bit is working with people who want to learn.  (Which fortuitously I also get at my day job.)

If you are relatively new to this blog you may not have seen the slide decks i put together.  If not, take a look at it over at Slideshare.  Share it with our team if you think they'll find it useful.


  1. Hi Craig, haven't been through your whole presentation in detail but having gone through the first few pages I realised that you still make a reference to the concept of the 'Triple constraint' that was now dropped (and not a minute too soon) from the current version of the PMBOK. Might be a good idea to adjust your presentation accordingly.

  2. Hey Shim

    Thanks for the comment.

    Personally I like the triple constraint. Not only has it got history, it's also more elegant that the latest model.

    More precision doesn't always mean a better truth. And of course the PMI isn't the last word on project management either.

    But in the end, yes. Maybe I do need to refresh the decks.
