  1. Hi Andrew and Constance, thanks for the story. I think you’ll find that a new book coming out in a few weeks, “How To Facilitate Productive Project Planning Meetings”, by yours truly (a BU Senior Lecturer) and Jim Stewart, PMP, will be very much of like mind. Any work in this area is of interest to me and should be to anyone (like project managers) for whom effective meetings are important.

    Thanks again,
    Rich Maltzman, PMP
