comment Project Management: Does Scrum work in your team/project?
I don't see how this is Off-Topic? If I'm a project manager and I want to look at adding new tools to my toolbox, where should I go to ask opinions? AskAboutProjects is about sharing knowledge of the overall project management experience. Who else should I ask about if Scrum is good for my given situation? If I go to a Scrum forum they'll all say yes, if I go to a classic waterfall driven group, they'll say no. If I ask PMs in general, I have a better chance getting a real world answer.

comment Project Management: How do you encourage all stakeholders (yourself, project members, customer, etc) to use and contribute to collaborative documentation (such as wikis)?
I must agree with Warren. Part of why I enjoyed contributing to AskAboutProjects is the recognition that Project Management is as much about people management as it is about the projects. If you can't motivate your team to follow the process it doesn't matter how good you are. There are two halfs to our job titile "Project" and "Manager". The only difference between us and Functional Managers is they have to write reviews. I want us to get on Area51, but not if all we're going to talk about is optimizing our Gant charts.
