How to Manage a Camel
If you want to read blog posts about project management with a humorous tone, this is the one for you. The blog has some really great posts about project management with tips, articles and advice, but it’s a little more light-hearted, which is very appealing to many project managers whose stress levels are through the roof on a daily basis. This is a great one to read anytime too, as the posts aren’t pages and pages long, they are light, and are relevant to modern project management.
If you can't be bothered to read posts at the end of a long day but want some great tips and advice with a really modern edge, Geek Manager is your blog. This blog has a video or recording in each blog rather than a long post with loads of text, so when you really don’t want to both with reading, you can watch instead. There are also books recommended in each talk/video, so you can read further if you wish.
