I am a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) with most of my experience in capital projects of various types. In fact, I am currently working in the post secondary world managing capital projects. However, looking forward in my career I think moving into the planning side of things (not limited to post secondary) offers opportunity and is totally of interest to me… I think. This is where we finally arrive at my question. Can you offer any thoughts on some “starter” or “introductory” planning reads? I want to make sure of my interest and explore the many aspects of planning to best determine my path. This would include popular type books as well as the more academic, magazines, etc, etc. I am also interested in educational programs, especially if distance is an option. If it makes any difference I am in Canada.

Thanks in advance for the help and advice, I appreciate you taking the time.
