    Research shows there are more people managing multiple projects than single projects, and yet there is not much information about it.

    To be able to manage big, single projects requires abilities that we, as project managers, have learned and developed over the years; learning about managing various projects is the new ability to learn.

    Join Elizabeth Harrin and Cornelius Fichtner as they discuss the fascinating topic of Managing Multiple Projects. Should we use the same approach as when managing one project? What are the recommended tools to use? What’s the trick, really?

    Here are the questions Cornelius asks Elizabeth:

    • What’s your experience of managing multiple projects?
    • Why did you write the book?
    • So, what’s the trick to getting it all done?
    • In your book, you talk about the challenges of managing multiple projects and the skills, processes and techniques that help overcome those. What barriers might project professionals face when it comes to using those tools?
    • Confidence sounds key to taking active steps in how you manage your workload. How can project professionals increase their own confidence?
    • We hear a lot about the importance of good stakeholder engagement, but what are the real benefits for people managing multiple projects?
    • How does remote work change how multiple projects need to be managed?
    • What are the biggest challenges involved in managing multiple projects in a remote environment?
    • And finally, there will be a question about... Sushi!

    This episode is the third of three in which Cornelius Fichtner explores the following four project management principles that were introduced by the PMBOK® Guide Seventh Edition:

    • 09. Complexity - Limiting effects of system interactions
    • 10. Risk - Reducing risk for project success
    • 11. Adaptability - Designing processes so you can be nimble
    • 12. Change - Readying everyone for what’s coming

    The episode is based on our original article "12 Project Management Principles Explained by Experts" and is neither a rehash nor is it a derivative of the PMBOK® Guide. Instead, you can expect to go beyond. Illustrated with quotes from experts and examples from real life not found in the guide, you will learn the concepts behind the principles in terms you need to understand as you prepare for your PMP exam. We even review one sample PMP exam prep question (taken from the PrepCast Simulator) for each of the principles and give you a chance to see if you can spot the correct answer.
