Editor's Note

From time to time we receive from correspondents valuable advice on topics of interest to practicing project managers. In this case, the area of interest is on the topic of Business Etiquette for different business occasions, information that we think should help project managers get along better with their superiors. Or if not that, at least avoid a black mark or two.

Sharon Schweitzer may also be reached more directly through Alex Smith who was good enough to make the contact for us. Alex can be reached by Email at or call 954-821-3434.

Here follows what we consider to be Sharon's valuable advice.
