As 2015 winds down, I’ve been reflecting on what happened during the course of the year. There was more good than bad this year for me.
2015 was a positive year. Not one of my best. Far from one of my worst. I’m back to taking stock of the lessons I learned during the year
Here are some lessons I learned in 2015:
7 Project Management Trends for 2016 As we close out 2015, it’s time to look at some project management trends we can expect to see in 2016.

7 Ways to Sell Agile to Project StakeholdersWhether you’re making the move to Agile project management in your development group or creating an Agile process for your in-house project management methodology, chances are you’re going to have to sell this change to executives in your organization. And, they’re going to be business people too. This means you have to have a really strong business case, no matter how logical and even obvious switching to an Agile system might be.
High on the list of other projects I’m pursuing since leaving CNET TechRepublic is trying to regain some of my personal time back. I had some weeks (and well months) where it seemed my life was divided up into writing, eating, going to the gym, and sleeping. That can be fun even idyllic for some but we all need a break.
Reclaiming some of my personal time means:
- Finding a hobby of some sort because so much of my life has been writing, eating, going to the gym, and sleeping
- Working on my house
- Catching my breath
My slow down will probably last as long as I feel good about it.
Have you reclaimed time for yourself this year?
