A Fun Update

I was recently in Australia (Brisbane, actually, and wow, they have recovered spectacularly from the floods) speaking at LCA. I did a talk on “The 7 Habits of Highly Ineffective Project Managers” whose content was derived entirely from this blog. They recently posted the video of the talk. Thanks very much to them for recording this, it was a pretty well-attended talk and I had a lot of fun doing it. The questions from the audience at the end (around the 20 minute mark) were also awesome.
