Daily RSS Feed Reads Over a Cup of Coffee

As one of the items on my personal “resolutions” kanban for 2010, I shortened my list of RSS feeds I’ve subscribed to.  I will now only keep the RSS feeds in Google Reader that I can actually zero out by Friday close of business. Too many times, we grow these unmanageable lists of feeds, only to see them grow and grow.  As a project manager, you don’t accept more and more work, until tasks are completely unmanageable.  Why should reading be any different?  In order to handle tasks, both management and reading, I allocate time for planned “work” and unplanned “work”.

The more people I follow on Twitter, the more recommended blog posts I read (unplanned) on a daily basis.  I now find myself reading more of these posts than my (planned) RSS reading. My colleague Sridhar of Hyderabad, India, asked if I would provide a list of RSS feeds I subscribe to.  The topics I am interested in include:  Project Management (who would have thought), Agile, Kanban, and Entrepreneurial topics.  I’ll admit this is not a complete list.  I also like to see pictures of epic kludges and jury rigs and pictures of the people of Walmart.

Here is my list of RSS Feed Reads (in alphabetical order) that I enjoy over a cup of coffee:

  1. Agile Development Blog
  2. Alec Satin – People, Projects, and Process
  3. CottagePM.com – Project Management for the rest of us
  4. Deep Fried Brain – PMP Exam Prep
  5. Geoff Crane – Solid Portfolio Management with a sharp wit
  6. How to Manage a Camel – Project Management
  7. Jason Calacanis – CEO of Mahalo.com and creator of This Week In StartUps
  8. Jim Benson – Personal Kanban
  9. Josh Nankivel – Founder of PM Student and creator of WBS Coach
  10. Mike Cottmeyer – Agile Leadership and Project Management
  11. Mixergy – Where the ambitious learn from experienced mentors

About Derek Huether

I'm an Enterprise Agile Coach at LeadingAgile. I have a goal to take the hand waving out of Agile, Kanban, & Scrum. I’m a strange combination of a little OCD, a little ADHD, a lot of grit, and a lot of drive. I come from a traditional PM background but I don't give points for stuff done behind the scenes. The only thing that counts is what you get done and delivered. Author of Zombie Project Management (available on Amazon)
