About this author

Gary M. Nelson, PMP (Gazza) - I am passionate about sharing knowledge and making Project Management concepts more accessible, particularly to new and aspiring Project Managers (of all ages). Said another way, I like to tell stories to help convey complex concepts in a way that helps the concepts "stick". Who says learning shouldn't be fun?

I am thrilled that my blog, podcast and books are being used to support Project Management education, and I hope you gain some useful tips, or at least some food for thought.

Everyone likes to have choice.

No, that's not quite correct. These days people demand choice, especially in the arena of consumer goods and services.

The more choice the better, it would seem - or at least the manufacturers would have you think so, as you try to pick out a new cell phone from the hundreds of similar models available on any given day.

But the truth is we don't... Read more of this blog post »
