(A guest post by Rick Valerga, author of The Cure for the Common Project)
About a week ago, project management author Rick Valerga
approached me through the blog to chat about social media.
We hit it off right away and I immediately vomited a thousand random thoughts onto him.
In retrospect, I'd've thought he
'd be completely traumatized by my regurgitation, but not only did he
accept my random advice with class, he even returned with a highly relevant guest post that I'm delighted to share with you today!
is the author of "The Cure for the Common Project: Five Core Themes That Transform Project Managers into Leaders".
has been invited to speak about project leadership at local and regional project management events, and has been featured in the PM Podcast.
experience spans several technologies and industries, including high-performance electronics hardware, software, aerospace/defense, robotics, and civil engineering.
Rick has been been a program and project manager for Agilent Technologies and an officer within the US Navy's Civil Engineer Corps.
He obtained his Project Management Professional (PMP) certification in 2003 and holds a BS in Systems Engineering from the US Naval Academy (Annapolis, MD) and an MS in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University.
