Episode 052: Project Management Methodology for Software Projects About a year ago I was asked to take over a troubled project in our company. From one moment to the next, I went from using project management software and being the project manager in charge of organizational change projects to being a PM for a software development project. While I had been working as a PM on website development before, dealing with software development in a controlled environment is a different beast. The dynamics were and are completely different. And what is it like to manage software projects? “Surprise! Now you’re a software project manager” is the title of the book written by Bas de Baar (

Of course, we will not be discussing his book as such but that there is a big difference between a SW development methodology and project management in software development where the PM methodology is used to manage technical projects. Today is also the day that we announce the winners of our book giveaway, we start a new book giveaway, we have a listener comment, a seminar announcement and a few more helpful resources that were recommended by our listeners.
