This site is an accumulation of my professional experience as a project manager. The start of this site was a simple page I had on my personal website with information on how to pass the PMP exam as well as some blogs I wrote about related to project management in regards to entrepreneurship, technology development, and business management. So many found it useful, that I decided to create a dedicated website to all things project management.
I hope the information, resources and tools available will help you in your job as Project Manager, regardless if you are just starting out, are a seasoned professional, or just seeking to find the latest in tools, tips, and best practices.
