Overview

Written in clear, jargon-free English, this practical guide walks readers through each step of the process of managing a successful project and introduces the key skills that every project manager needs to develop. Emphasizing the importance of starting up a project in a controlled manner — an area where many projects go wrong — it explains how to select and build a winning team and ensure that all project stakeholders are involved and on the same page. It then takes the reader through each stage of a typical project, using easy-to-follow examples and helpful lists of applicable tasks and deliverables along with valuable insights on risk management and how to plan, lead, organize, and control a project. Finally, it covers the right way to end a project and capture the lessons learned from it, thus benefiting both the manager’s next project and the business itself.
