Posted by Elizabeth Harrin

Picture of ferris wheelWelcome to the June/July 2011 edition of the Carnival of Project Management. Yes, the numbering is still a little mixed up after last time. Next time we’ll be right back on track with Carnival 36. Promise.

Here we go:

Alicia Arnold presents What can a project manager learn from creativity training? posted at Daily Creativity, saying, “What does creativity have to do with project management? More than you think. Learn ways to tap into your creativity to enhance your project management skills.”

Linda Jones presents 33 Useful Android Apps for Project Management posted at Mr. Manager. I have an Android phone and there are some apps here I’d like to try.

Simon Moore presents The Success Of The Human Genome Project posted at Project Case Studies, explaining that this is “Part of a new blog focusing on learning from past projects, this article focused on the human genome project.” Simon’s book is great, by the way.

Bob Lieberman presents The Elephant In The Road posted at Cultivating Creativity – Developing Leaders for the Creative Economy.

Rich Maltzman, PMP presents Ray Anderson helps us connect business and sustainability posted at Earth PM, saying, “To understand Green Project Management, first understand green business. Here’s how.”

Mark Johnstone presents Your Dissertation Plan – 18 Free Tools posted at Postgrad Blog, saying, “This post lists 18 free productivity tools you can use when working online. The post was originally intended to help students writing their dissertation, but the tools are useful in managing any project.” And it has a great image of sticky notes in action.

Martin Webster presents Why Do Many Projects Fail to Deliver their Objectives? posted at Martin Webster, Esq., saying, “Why do too many projects fail to deliver their objectives even though project management best practices appear to be used?” This is a new-ish UK project management blogger that I’m glad to have discovered.
