Compass Newsletter

True North pgs, Inc. publishes a newsletter called Compass. We distribute it via the Internet and by regular mail to a community now numbering about 4000.

I created Compass as a covenant with my founding community, to pay it back for helping me do what I love to do. The original commitment continues. The newsletter has outgrown its original charter as simply a journal of project management, covering now a broader set of issues, much in the same way that work today covers more territory than it used to. Compass serves as the basis for providing more effective leadership to your community.

I believe that we improve each others quality of experience by sharing our stories and our insights. Feel free to download Adobe Acrobat® .pdf copies of our newsletter, in either print or screen-optimized versions.
