I apologize for being MIA the last few months. I started my masters this January, and I have yet to find the right balance between work, school, and a life. (I have no excuse for the weeks prior. Ha.)
Anyway, one of the classes I am taking at JHU is Management of Systems Projects. The class gives us really great resources for future work as project managers. I thought I’d list them here.
(I plan to keep this document updated, and if you have suggestions, I’d love to add them here.)
