Also liked by White, the Digital Project Manager includes lots of useful, practical posts focused on digital and web-based projects. Their niche content, which is especially relevant to digital agencies and studios, draws on existing frameworks such as Prince2, scrum, and PMP.
The Green Project Management blog helps PMs take a sustainable approach to project management. It includes coverage of projects that benefit the environment and topics such as sustainability, green technologies, and global warming, as they relate to business projects. It really helps bring important environmental issues and projects to the forefront. “Our company is all about sustainability and helping the environment, so this blog is definitely a top choice for us,” says Nate Masterson, CEO of Maple Holistics.
The Lazy Project Manager’s Blog takes a less formal approach to project management. The author writes about everything from giving better presentations to the best project management certifications to forming better working relationships with customers and clients. “The author provides deep insights that are delivered in a humorous way, which helps connect with the reader. If you’re like me, you’ll find the concepts easy to relate to,” says Siddhartha Gupta, CEO of Mercer-Mettl.
“Even project management experts started somewhere. If you’re just beginning your PM journey, this blog is a great place to start,” advises Masterson. The posts on Project Management Basics cover concepts such as time management, leading projects, risk response strategies, and how to keep things simple. “It’s an easy, user-friendly blog with simple tips that are helpful, relevant, and easy to consume, which is what makes it so great for beginner PMs.”
The Project Management Podcast regularly features interviews with project managers from around the world. They share their experiences and what makes them successful in their field. Jeff Neal, project manager at PennCoat, adds this about the podcast: “It’s been a great tool in my informal PM training because it's geared toward beginner and experienced PMs alike. It doesn't get too bogged down in formalities; instead, it gets right into the meat and potatoes, and talks about effective ways to schedule, organize, and execute projects. This makes it easier for me to absorb the material.”
