    A simplified yet effective way to manage big projects

    The BKPM method for managing projects in not hard to understand, although executing in your company just might not be so easy. Tony goes through the triangulated model of the BKPM method, and shows the characteristics of successful project managers that cut through the BS, keep both tactical delivery teams AND upper management accountable, and deliver on time and on budget. If you're in the project management game, especially for big technical implementations, this is a worthwhile reference.
