While most of my PM Network® posts aim to draw you into one of our interesting feature stories, today my goal is to tell you about the Voices section of the magazine.

Voices is where you will gain information and perspectives that you can use right away. It’s a place where you can see the value proposition of your PMI membership.

This is especially true for one of our most popular Voices columns, Career Q&A. Written by Lindsay Scott, the director of program and project management at the recruitment firm Arras People, this column answers readers’ questions on getting ahead in your project management career. In August PM Network, Lindsay talks about whether volunteer work will help someone break into project management (training and networking might be a better bet), and protecting yourself from giving free advice when interviewing for new consulting engagements (avoid specifics in your answers).

PM Network’s Voices help you at all levels of your project management journey. In this month’s issue, several practitioners provide nugget-sized advice on what their greatest challenge was when adapting to agile approaches. Our leadership columnist focuses on creating a compelling vision for your team. The Culture Club column talks about the power of ritual. And, for an executive’s point of view, Inside Track turns to an insurance company CIO to tell how having someone in the C-suite with a project management background helps ensure that technology-related projects align with organizational strategy.

We do not neglect practitioners who are out there day in and day out, getting things done. The appropriately named Getting It Done articles are written by readers who enjoy sharing tips and techniques that might help you do your job.

The August issue gets it done with an article promoting cross-organizational approaches to manage risks on nuclear power plant projects. Another article advocates for cross-cultural training to improve global projects’ chances of success.

Be sure to turn to the Voices section of PM Network every month for valuable advice and opinions. If your projects and/or careers has been impacted by the magazine’s Voices, please share your story in the comments.
