Visit us at our new home:

You can listen to the show by clicking here.

Show notes: Our main focus today is on Soft Skills. What they are, how they will help you become a better PM and how to improve your own set of soft skills. Two resources I mention for soft skills are's soft skill "Quiz" and a whitepaper titled Accommodating Soft Skills in Software Project Management. A special hello and congratulations goes to my friend Thomas Schmidt in Germany who passed his PMP exam last week.
