A Busy Period
It has been a very busy year in 2016. So much that, at times, I could not keep up with my goal of posting a new article once a week. Despite that, it remains my goal to publish one article on Project-Aria every week while maybe giving myself 3-4 weeks off for vacation.
A Book: Leadership Toolbox for Project Managers
In 2015, I published my first book, Leadership Toolbox for Project Managers. It was first published on Amazon Kindle in February, then a paperback version in April, and on 6 other digital platforms in May.
The book was very well received. After so much effort in writing the book, it is nice to see the interest in the subject.
Elise Stevens, of Fix my project Chaos, published a review on March 16, 2015:
Elizabeth Harrin, of Girls Guide to PM, also published a review on March 18, 2015
You can also read the reviews on Amazon.
Articles on Project-Aria
I published 13 articles on Project-Aria in the first 6 months of 2015. This represents only half of my target. I must admit that publishing the book took much more energy than I thought, and other work activities also kept me very busy.
The site now has 260 articles, since its creation in July 2012.
I definitely plan to publish more in the last 6 months of the year.
Based on Google Analytics for the period of January 1, 2015, to June 30, 2015, here are the 5 most popular articles:
- Book Review | Real Project Management
- How to benefit from meditation and mindfulness at your place of work
- Create good habits to lead a productive life
- Put it in writing
- Projects and Operations in Project-Based Organizations
