Project Management Survival: A Practical Guide to Leading, Managing and Delivering Challenging Projects by Richard Jones

This book is written for the person who finds themselves handed a major corporate project and is wondering how to see it through successfully without ending up on the candidacy list for the sack.

Written from a real-world perspective, this book provides you with a template for success based on project management techniques from the school of corporate hard knocks. Author Richard Jones shows you how to avoid project killers, such as inheriting an incompetent, scared, or doomed team. He also gives practical advice on getting to the truth of a project, getting the right initial plan, developing a genuinely workable plan, and reveals how to manage people so the project stays on track.

If you are tasked suddenly with managing a project in-house, the likelihood is that you will find that you are dumped in an impossible situation. This book shows you how to control the situation and come out on top.
