Overview

Project management is one of the hottest topics in business right now, and with good reason -- over 2/3 of projects are completed behind schedule and over budget! What's more, outside project management consultants can charge thousands of dollars for a mere consultation. Streetwise Project Management is a thorough guide to project management for any business owner, department, or project manager. Unlike other introductory guides on the market, which simplistically focus on the HR side of project management. Streetwise Project Management also explains project management methods, diagrams, software, evaluation, and review techniques -- in an intelligent layperson's style. Techniques for working with teams, conflict resolution, and negotiating office politics are also covered. Streetwise Project Management will help you sidestep the issues that can potentially derail a project getting done on time and on budget.

I went looking for a book that would paint an over-arching broad-brush of Project Management plus have some concrete details that I could sink my teeth into. This book served both those purposes extremely well without losing me in the deep mud!
