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

Publication

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.

Book Reviews

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:

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:
