example the articles under project management are subdivided into Project management framework, Scheduling, Scope management, Communication, Change management and Building support for projects. It gives an idea on different tools that could be used like under Problem Solving techniques various diagram based tools such as Affinity diagram or Systems diagrams are discussed. Resources section covers more interactive information with subsections like expert interviews and video demonstrating importance of flow charts, impact analysis, mission and vision statements, leadership, risk analysis, SWOT analysis and many more. Each criteria of SWOT analysis is well defined and tells the user how it could be successfully used. There are forums where people discuss project problems and solutions. Career Cafe and Mentor networks also provide a lot of direction and guidance with people with vast knowledge and experience shedding their views.

There are also resources available for corporate including corporate memberships, Intranet and Learning Management Systems (LMS) and training resources for employees and staff. Individual memberships are also available. The online store gives the option for buying books covering several topics by well-known writers. They dedicate a section to tell about themselves and their achievements which is remarkable. In my search for a website that can help me understand project management I came across several good choices, like www.projectmanagement.com, but the one I found to be most interesting is www.mindtools.com. I really liked how they divided different areas and put very good articles which help you understand that particular topic better. I took the chance to take the Project Management quiz just to compare what I think about my position to what they think and I must say they were close. It exposed some weaknesses and I hope to use this site to make myself better. Stress management is another area that I struggle at times so I read the articles on it. The idea of keeping a stress diary was appealing to me and I am trying to follow it by writing down all the stress factors during a day for a week and at the end I plan to sit down and go through it and try to work out a way to be more prepared when a similar situation arises.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
