Furthermore, great project managers have the right skills to rally the necessary stakeholders to quickly respond to the evolution of the projects they manage.

Our show is divided into 2 segments:
In part 1, we talk to industry insider, Max Wideman, who has more than 40 years of project and program management experience in a wide range of projects and industries, including heavy engineering works such as hydroelectric projects and construction of major building complexes. Wideman is recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on modern project and program management. The Wideman PM Glossary is one of the most widely-referenced lexicons of project management terms and terminology in the world. In this episode Max will be sharing with us his insight on the Project Management Institute's (PMI) development of its Project Managment Book of Knowledge (PMBOK).
In part 2, our in-house project management specialist, Willie Maykett, will sound off in Painfully Honest with Willie Maykett. Willie examines the historical development of the Great Wall of China project and its centuries of evolution.
