PMI OVOC 1st Website Upgrade Completed

The PMI OVOC website was upgraded this past weekend. The two main changes that you will notice are as follows:

Single sign-on: If you are a member of the OVOC you will no longer need to have a separate user id/password for the OVOC site. You can now login using your PMI.org userid and password. This gives you access to both OVOC and PMI content with just one login. Just go the PMIOVOC.org and click the normal Login button. Two sites for the price of one login!

Responsive Website: the new website engine will automatically scale the website for all of your devices (desktop, laptop, tablet, and smartphone) and their varying screen sizes and resolutions.

The second upgrade which has yet to be scheduled will include changes to the site format and content. Stay tuned for more news!

Time to drop quality from project management
Project Accelerator News
OK! Now I've got your attention, I'm not really saying we should drop the idea of quality in project management, I'm just saying we should look at it in a different way. Take the "triple constraint" for example. Its creation is usually attributed to Dr. Martin Barnes and the basic idea is that you can't have everything you want.

Developers spend a lot of time learning about programming. Unless you work on project management software, you probably don't spend a lot of time thinking what happens outside the realm of programming. However, you need to take this seriously, as there are a lot of conversations going on all around us, and they define what we do on a daily basis.
