Project Management Readings

I have taught a number of subjects related to leadership, project management, and change management both directly and for other providers. In the area of project management, I often teach PMP Exam Preparation bookcamps and Scrum Master courses.

Often I have been asked to provide a list of books for further reading. So here’s my lists. Many of them I have read myself. Some I know of but have never read.

What can I say? This is my book and I think it's GREAT. And of course it leads the pack. :D Being serious for a moment, it's really designed as the base for a PMO and documentation when a client has neither.
