Flying into Project Management

Fipm_planeIf you get to know me, you will find out that I am an aviation nut.  I love flying and airplanes.  That does not mean I love being squished into an airline seat, but I do love the general sport of flying.  A while back I was reading an article in a flying magazine that I read.  The article was titled something along the lines of "Top 10 Ways to be a Better Pilot."  I thought of the similar types of articles I have seen related to project management..."Top 10 Ways to be a Better Project Manager", for example.  It got me thinking about how far aviation has come in learning how to create predictable outcomes, safe results, and managed risk.  It also got me thinking about how project management needs to do the same, and how it can learn from the lessons that aviation has already learned (and is learning).  Perhaps we just do not take it quite as seriously because the consequences of failure are not as dire.

I say all of that to let you know that I have started another blog "Flying Into Project Management at www.flyingintoprojectmanagement.com."  I have a lot of material and lessons to share with you that provide a different way of looking at and learning project management principles.  I hope that you will check it out and follow along!
