Dead Presidents

The Dead Presidents’ Guide to Project Management considers 40 brief lessons that these great men have bestowed upon us.

Most projects need both a strong, skilled executive sponsor and a project manager (or if an organization follows an agile methodology such as Scrum, then a Scrum master and product owner); and both positions can learn from our dead presidents.
