How do you feel about New Year’s resolutions? Do you have some of your own, and do you stick to them? Many chose to forgo the tradition of making resolutions for one of two reasons: 1) they’re simply too easy to break, or 2) life is already pretty great. Those who feel the latter adopt a mindset of personal growth—a growth that builds on the previous year rather than creating an entirely new set of goals. Here at Planview, we’re ringing in the New Year by doing just that.
While the blank slate for 2018 holds endless possibilities for exciting, new content, we don’t want to forget the blogs that really shined in 2017. It was a year of big announcements, like Planview and LeanKit coming together, nostalgic events, such as the 20th anniversary of the Planview Horizons Customer Conference, and countless tips on improving work and resource management.
To commemorate 2017, we have compiled a list of the top 10 blogs of 2017. Take some time to read through them—you might learn something you didn’t know before.
