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!

How do you get people to get stuff done when you have no "authority?" That’s a lot of the art of Project Management! In today’s episode, we walk through a few of Kate and Kim’s secret weapons that  you can use to get things done even when you don’t have formal authority.

This entire podcast was inspired by a great question from one of our PM Happy Hour members - big shout-out to Dani! Whether you are a Member or a Listener, we love to hear from you - give us a shout anytime at !
