    Thanks for the writeup, Krish! It’s been a very busy day, but it’s nice to end it with a story like this. Hopefully we’re both right about the continuing success of SaaS and cloud initiatives!

    It is a very good time to be a PM right now. If you have an idea of how projects should be run, there is a great tool for you. So if you believe strongly that wikis will save the world, Krishnan showed you Liquid Planner and PBWorks. I want to ask the readers of this entry what they think about managing only and ever 7 things in a project. That is Paradigm PoP’s philosophy (see http://paradigmpop.com/node/46), and we have a beautiful tool that will benefit those who agree with our idea of 7.

    I think the major tweak the project edition needs is an easy way to associate the work done (in a wiki/workspace) with a task and milestone. It is there for tasks, but not really for milestones.

    Going from say a wiki page that has work being done on a task, there is no obvious link back to the task.

    software is the next obvious iteration from
    an asynchronous collaboration offered by the earlier tools like Wikis and others. When Zoho announced the chat
    integration, I was expecting other players to bring in real time
    collaboration as well. Yesterday Pbworks, formerly Pbwiki and our

    [..]I am a bit surprised that the discussion about the future of project management is overwhelmingly about PMP (certifications). I think PMP provides value in that it certifies that a person knows what could be an ideal way of managing projects. This is helpful in that it encourages your practices to be skewed towards the ideal practices recommended by a bigger group of practitioners rather than something formed by just your experience. No matter how experienced a project manager is, it is important to have the academic knowledge of commonly accepted best practices as one person alone can very rarely acquire such refined knowledge on his own. It also provides a common language for the profession which makes it easier for professionals to move between organizations. So, PMP is important, but the key is the capability to apply that knowledge in real situations and that comes with a certain amount of experience. So, a PMP-certified experienced project manager is the right choice.[..]
