PgM for OSS Beta 5 released

The fifth beta release of Program Management for Open Source Projects is now available from the The Pragmatic Bookshelf. And if that’s not exciting enough, it’s 50% off when you use promo code COMMUNICATION2022 before midnight Eastern on April 13! In this release, I added a chapter on designing suitable processes.

“Process” doesn’t have to be a four-letter word. A well-designed process promotes consistency and accountability. These are good things. The best processes essentially describe what people are already doing. So if you want to learn how to do processes right, check out the newest chapter. I didn’t even include this in the original plan—it’s a bonus!

If you’ve already purchased a beta copy, thank you! You should have received a notification that an update is available. This release—and future releases—are already yours. If you haven’t purchased the book yet, you can buy it DRM-free in PDF, epub, and mobi formats directly from The Pragmatic Bookshelf. If you find something confusing, missing, wrong, or otherwise “buggy” in this or any other chapter, you can let me know.
