Project Management Happy Hour

PM Happy Hour is the place for frank and honest discussion about real world issues in project management. We do it in a way that’s not too dry, though it may get a bit salty from time to time.

Each episode, your hosts Kim Essendrup and Kate Anderson we will cover a problem faced in project management today, and share practical advice, real-life examples and the occasional project horror story.

Not only that, but every podcast is also an online class! Our host is a PMI Registered Education Provider, who has structured each podcast as an easy-to-listen-to lesson. To get credit, go to our web site at, purchase your class, take the test (based on the content from our podcast) and you get your PDU certificate instantly!

This episode, Kate and Kim talk about their favorite Project Managers from the big screen and small screen - and what lessons we can take away from them. From big-screen capers to everybody’s favorite movie PM (who is “here to put you BACK on schedule, commander"... because the sponsor is not as forgiving as he is… :-) )

Laughs aside, media are a big part of everyone’s lives, and these characters and plots are part of our culture - as should be project management. So, get some popcorn, listen to OUR pics for best movie PMs, then join the conversation on our website or FB - tell us which PMs we missed! And which movie project sponsor you are SO GLAD you don’t have.
