Today, I don’t have a full interview for you. I have something better. I have a free book on Project Risk Management for you:
The free risk management eBook you are going to get is “Managing Murphy -- Essentials of project risk management”. It’s written by Dr Jim Young, PMP, FNZIM (http://www.skillpower.co.nz/) and it is intended to be applicable regardless of your preferred methodology and framework – so you can use the concepts presented no matter if you follow PMBOK®, PRINCE2 or Agile approaches.
If you use a podcast app to download and listen to our interviews, then the book has very likely already been downloaded by the app for you. It is a PDF document and you should see it as a separate episode of your subscription of The PM Podcast. If not, then please click on the download button above.
You can claim 1 PDU in the "Technical Project Management" category for each hour that you spend reading this book. Please study the PMI CCRS Handbook and search for "reading" in the document to see how to claim your PDUs in detail.

And according to the title, Bill Dow’s new book Project Management Communication Tools is 100% about communication tools. And since Agile is the hot topic of the day, a large portion of the book is devoted to Agile Communications and Agile Communication Tools.

You don’t necessarily have to manage a social media project in order to recognize the benefits of using the tools of social media project management. Furthermore, being a social media project manager is more than simply publishing a few project updates on Facebook.
In order to really reap the benefits, social media has to be a fully integrated and planned part of your project’s communications management strategy.
Why do project managers need a formal project charter?
What is the role of a program manager?
What are the top 10 pitfalls to avoid when starting a project?
What is the single best way to prevent scope creep?
All answers are detailed, easy to understand and often come with tips and tricks tables and graphics and everything you need to fully understand and implement good practices on your own projects.

This second edition is not just a rehash of what Jeff originally published some years back. Far from it. Jeff revisited every single question and wrote an updated answer to include changes in our industry. So it’s not surprising that he now also includes sections on Agile, Scrum and Stakeholder Management.
