More about Guide Dogs

Guide Dogs
Spent an interesting day in Winnersh, working through their Corporate Project Office plans and drawing up a route map for the implementation. It was very topical for me as that's what I will be talking about in the Netherlands the week after next. 

Agile Project Management
Still not heard anything back from the publishers, so fingers crossed.

Project 2016
Also just seen that Microsoft will be releasing a new version of Project with Office 2016 later this year. So I'll have to see if the publishers want me to update it, the 2013 version didn't sell very well so they may decide to drop it, we shall see.

I'm taking a week off next week to visit family and spend a few days cycling in Kent. So no post next week but I'll post an update on how the Netherlands conference went the week after.

Guide Dogs for the Blind

I had a contact from a young lady from the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association a short while back and have arranged to go and spend a day with them next Tuesday. We will be looking at their re-launch of their Corporate Program Office, which should be very interesting and very much in line with what I will be speaking on at the PMI Netherlands Conference in three weeks time.

Meanwhile In Easy Steps (my publishers) have started reviewing the revised Agile Project Management book co-authored with David Morris this time. So we wait with bated breath for any feedback and hope they don't find too many typos!

Quite good fun but I thought I had better put the text of what I will be saying on the slide notes as it will be the only handout the delegates get. I thought the title slide looked nice...
