Episode 092: Ten Things you can Learn about Project Management from Britney SpearsToday we are starting a new series of episodes. My plan is to go back to the basics of project management and revisit books and teachings from the great names in project management. The reason for this is because I feel that we loose ourselves way too much in the detailed nitty-gritty of our methodologies. Agile, Waterfall, RUP, Scrum and Extreme Project Management are all good methodologies, but in order to be able to apply them properly, you have to first understand the underlying fundamentals of our profession. And there is no better way to do this than by going back to the basics. I have a list of great names in project management in mind. And today, we are starting out with the name that ranks at the very top and that is the world-famous singer, songwriter and project manager Mrs. Britney Spears.

How do you feel about the project management abilities of Mrs. Britney Spears? Do you read her books? Do you apply her best practices on your projects? Please leave a comment below.

We Recommend the following books, courses and sites from our partners:

  • Do you need to know how to create a WBS? If so then The WBS Coach from Margaret Meloni is for you. Originally created by Josh Nankivel, this is the best WBS training that you will find.
  • The Project Management Answer Book is written by Jeff Furman and currently has a 5-star rating in Amazon. It can even help you for your Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam, as it is an excellent PMP® Book that should be on the reading list of anyone preparing for the exam. We even have and interview with Jeff about his book. Click here to listen to the interview...
  • And outside of project management we are affiliated with this conveyancing company.
