Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Sometimes it seems like everyone's calling themselves a project manager these days. Some of 'em are even certified. But let's face it, not all project managers are alike, and great ones are worth their weight in gold. This book is about being a great project manager: one who consistently delivers maximum value, on time and on budget.

It's about learning from PMs who know how to orchestrate projects and teams like symphonies. It's about overcoming the mistakes even many experienced PMs fall into: problems in communication, motivating teams, managing scope, tracking actuals against plan.

The techniques and ideas in this book don't come out of thin air. They come from the Alpha Study, a survey of more than 3,000 project managers -- especially, those identified as the top 2 percent in performance. What do they do differently? You may be surprised -- and you can't afford not to know. Bill Camarda, from the December 2006 Read Only
