Learning More About Project Management[edit]

Hi Rosie- I am hoping you can give me some advice. I am working with a couple people to take on leadership of a project. There hasn't been anyone at the helm of the project for a few years. The problem is that we have no idea what we are doing. We need to set priorities and learn about evaluating entries that are part of the project. You are one of the best project managers I know, so I am hoping you can help me figure out how to learn how to do these things. Is there anything on Wiki? Is there actual training? How do you do these things? Thanks in advance and happy new year! --LibraryGurl (talk) 18:43, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi Librarygurl, first and foremost: just go for it. You'll learn by doing. As for how do I do these things, I started managing projects in 1987, became a project manager in 1990, a contract manager in 1993, studied project management as part of my MBA (graduated 1997), and at some point during the 1990s, became a member of the Project Management Institute, though I never sat for the exam. I don't know of any on wiki pm training. But there are some good books... maybe starting with "Project Management for Dummies" (not that you're a dummie!). One last thing: I've relied on checklists through thick and thin, and I'd say most project managers do, too. Good luck, and ok to ping me via email with other questions/comments if you wish. --Rosiestep (talk) 19:47, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Rosie! I will check out the book and let you know if I have any questions. I appreciate this a lot! --LibraryGurl (talk) 17:36, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Happy 2017![edit]

Thank you kindly - you, too. I have plans for this year - I'll discuss them over at the WiR talkpage in a little bit. :-) --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 19:54, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Happy New Year!
Hello Rosiestep:

Did you know ... that back in 1885, Wikipedia editors wrote Good Articles with axes, hammers and chisels?

Thank you for your contributions to this encyclopedia using 21st century technology. I hope you don't get any unnecessary blisters.

Alaskan artist[edit]

While the article is a year old, I nonetheless thought you might enjoy reading about this Alaskan artist and her portrait series. Enjoy! (KTOO-TV) Juneau Mike (talk) 18:14, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Nice article, {{rto|Michaelh2001|label1=Mike|p=}. Thanks for sharing it. --Rosiestep (talk) 03:24, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Sugar Bunker[edit]

Sugar Bunker

Hey, can you find anything on Sugar Bunker, Nevada? Near Area 51. I spotted it on Google maps but we don't have an article!♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:54, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Found this, but not really anything else. I'm guessing that the info is classified because of the Nevada Test Site; notice proximity to the Nevada National Security Site Device Assembly Facility and Creech Air Force Base. --Rosiestep (talk) 21:07, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Funny thing is on google maps it's labelled as if it's like a small town or something!♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:29, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
This is conjecture on my part, Dr. Blofeld, but you might not be far off, e.g. here might be some sort of underground habitat. --Rosiestep (talk) 20:49, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Could be an underground village of aliens ;-)♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:20, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
