Lisa Drake’s PM Blog is the blog from a jack-of-all-trades Nevadan that has found time to master the fine art that is project management. Lisa, based in the popularly-referenced “biggest little city in the world”, Reno, combines experiences/passions both professionally and of an extracurricular, personal variety to give a regularly updated blog chock full of ideas and interaction.
“I am a 3rd generation Nevadan that works at a large gaming company in Reno managing special projects related to IT, Pricing, and Promotions,” Lisa says. “I completed my Bachelor of Science in Information Systems and am currently working on my Master’s in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Information Technology. Outside of work and school, I am an active member in several Masonic Organizations, Order of the Eastern Star, Daughters of the Nile, and Job’s Daughters, where have gotten the opportunity to lead two of these organizations through planning and organizing events, and building lasting relationships.”
Blogging 2-3 times a week since its February 2011 inception, Lisa summed up her plans for the the blog well in her introductory post Feb. 9th:
“I look forward to this journey online and blogging around several topics related to technology, business, personal experiences, and so much more. My goal is to create an environment where we can all benefit through each other’s talents and learning from each other. Finally, I wanted to leave you a quote that Professor Randy Pausch’s wrote in his ‘The Last Lecture’ book: ‘We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.’”
“My blog provides you with resources and personal experiences that I have had in regards to Project Management,” Lisa adds.
Though Lisa has yet to identify her favourite posts or the most popular in the early stages, you can see by the four main categories she features on the blog those posts that are definitely worth a read:
