Help is a click away.

PM Web ResourcesThe role of a project manager can be very demanding and it’s always helpful to have professional resources available to navigate your project to a successful outcome. Where can you turn for additional information, ideas, help, tools and templates? I look to 3 online resources.

Project Management Institute ~ www.pmi.org

Project Management Institute (PMI), as outlined on their site, is the world’s leading not-for-profit professional membership association for the project, program and portfolio management profession. The PMI site is one of the resources I use for a couple of reasons:

  • PMI provides the certification for project managers, and it’s where I record the PDUs (professional development units) required to maintain my status as a PMP (project management professional).
  • The site is also a great resource when looking to get a good pulse on what’s happening with all things project management: globally and locally. They have informative publications and educational programs to keep you up to date on project management trends and approaches that you can use in managing your projects.

Projectmanagement.com ~ www.projectmanagement.com

This is the perfect complement to the PMI site. As outlined on the site, their mission is to help project managers succeed. The site maintains a great inventory of training and reference materials, tools and templates, and networking opportunities. If you’re ever stuck for a project management tool or template of approach, visit the site to see how they can help. And, what I also like is if what you are looking for doesn’t exist, drop them an e-mail and they’ll get back to you with options.

Mind Tools ~ www.mindtools.com

As the Mind Tools site points out; they exist to help the visitor learn the practical, straightforward skills needed to excel in their career. Their offerings don’t focus exclusively on project management but all of the offerings impact on increasing your project management skill. For example, they offer team management, leadership skills, problem solving, strategy tools, and communication skills, to name a few. It’s a really good resource for skills that impact your performance and success.

Managing projects is no easy job and it’s nice to have resources that you can rely on. Take a moment and check out www.pmi.org, www.projectmanagement.com, and www.mindtools.com and see what they can offer to help you in your project management.
