This post is part of the first ever project management related blogging initiative organised by @shim_marom. Over 70 respected project management bloggers worldwide have joined forces to post an article with the same title. So read on to find out what project management, specifically digital project management means to me.
I got published in an actual book, megalolz. The Gower Handbook of People in Project Management is a unique and rich compilation of over 60 chapters about project management roles and the people who sponsor, manage, work in or are otherwise important to project success.
A guest post by Jason Westland, CEO of Project Manager.com. There are lots of people who end up sponsoring digital projects, some much better than others. Here are five types of digital project sponsor to avoid if you can and what to do if you cannot.
On 29th July 2013, over 100 Digital Project Managers met at Microsoft’s office in London, UK for the very first Digital Project Management Workshop, sponsored by GatherContent and hosted by Brett Harned and myself aka Arnie and Danny DeVito. Want to know how it went?

When web design and development folk express their dislike for Digital Project Managers I like to ask questions. More often than not they’ve just had the misfortune of working with really shit ones. We’re not all bad and here is my plea to those giving us a bad reputation.
After having to keep it quiet for a little bit, I can now proudly announce I’ll be speaking at this year’s Digital PM Summit in Philadelphia alongside the likes of Jeffrey Zeldman, Michael Lopp, Carl Smith, Whitney Hess and more – kowafuckingbunga.

Hiring a decent Digital Project Manager is hard enough at the best of times, but the first real test is the interview. What should you ask a candidate before letting them loose on digital project management? Here’s a few questions I ask and why.
Work – check RSS feeds – work – check Twitter, reply to a few Tweets, read a few blog posts – work, keep Twitter open, reply to a few more Tweets, read a few more posts – work.
