Some lesson’s learned

After January’s article, I thought I had a good understanding of how publishing was working. Unfortunately that was not the case. As it turns out, not everything you do in this area is always a success.

I always wanted to do an article discussing using Matrix teams on projects and using the movie, The Matrix, as a basis for this discussion. For obvious reasons. So I did that and had the article sent out. What a difference from January. Only a few sites picked it up. These are listed below.

Although a print magazine is looking at publishing this in their June/July issue as well. But still not along the lines of what I have done previously. No Inc magazine here.

While the article was creative and addressed the topic, it turns out it was too creative for the editors involved. This has been duly noted. Future efforts will still be creative, but not too creative.

So there is a boundary for publishing in the Project Management area. Too technical and dry is one and too creative is the other. So the article that is sent out for March will fall solidly between these two points and the results will be posted here. Hopefully my efforts will be back on track.
