Maximizing Efficiency with Adriana Girdler #PMChat Aug 9th 2013


  1. This recap is presented by PDU Of The Day and compiled by Martin Chernenkoff. Martin, known as @EdmontonPM on Twitter, is the editor of – PDU Of The Day. The website highlights Professional Development Opportunities for PMs, BAs & Agile Professionals.
  2. To meet more of the great PMOTs (Project Managers on Twitter) who make #pmchat a lively and engaging discussion of Project Management topics – Robert Kelly, Rob Prinzo and others, read the pduOTD article #PMChat on Twitter.

    A note to the participants & readers

    I rearrange the order of some tweets in order to maintain a conversational flow to the recap and add links to complete the experience. As Twitter is a real time chat sometimes there can be many conversation flows at one time.  This arrangement allows the reader to follow the questions in the sequence they were presented.  The PMOTs  can also go off on a tangent, or respond late to a question or add valuable insight to an earlier tweet.  I hope you enjoy this recap.

    #PMChat is like a world-wide cocktail party - with side chats, side comments. sometimes sarcasm and often inside jokes
