Kathy Schwalbe

Welcome! I’m Kathy Schwalbe, Ph.D., PMP, and mother of three! My passion is educating project leaders to make the world a better place. You can find information about all three of my books on this site. Below are links to purchase them, and the tabs above provide info for each as well as other resources.

New info: In July 2021 PMI released an online version of the 2021 PMBOK Guide. I’ll have a new edition of my Intro PM book out by the end of this year. If you are using my IT PM book, Cengage has decided not to publish a new edition.  Consider moving to my Intro PM book, which does include a lot of IT examples. Also, Grow with Google added a certification in project management.

“By 2027, employers will need 87.7 million individuals working in project management-oriented roles.” Read PMI’s latest Job Growth and Talent Gap report.  “22 million new project-oriented jobs will be created between 2017 and 2027.” Read PMI’s 2018 Jobs Report.

In mid 2020 LinkedIn lists project management jobs as #3 in the top 10 jobs identified as having the greatest number of openings, steady growth, and a livable wage. See their free courses and job listings.
