Announcing an upcoming PMI Webinar

I've been invited by the PMI Agile Community of Practice to present a webinar. It will be held on February 15, 2011 at noon Eastern time and will last one hour. The topic is “The Seven Sins of Project Management.” PMI Here's the session description:

Agile approaches to software development promise many advantages: shorter schedules, more productive teams, products that better meet customer expectations, higher quality, and more. In this talk, Mike will explain how agile teams achieve these goals by avoiding the seven deadly sins of project management. Covered will be sins such as gluttony, sloth, lust, opaqueness, and more. Giving in to one of these temptations can result in a failed or canceled project. Along the way you’ll be introduced to key aspects of agile development and hear stories of agile success and failure.

There's no charge to participate but you do need to be a member of PMI's Agile Community of Practice. But, hey, that's a good thing to join anyway. (And I think it's free, too.) You need to register in advance, which you can do on the PMI website.
