Project management is fast becoming the engine that drives an organization's progress - rather it be to excel internally or grow externally. It is a core competency when it comes to successfully implementing strategy. This book is for all those individuals who find themselves managing projects, no matter their experience level with project management processes and tools. The purpose of this book is straightforward: to share ideas that will help you better manage projects. The ideas are based on my 36 years of project experience of which the last 15 have been focused on teaching others how to manage projects and consulting with organizations on actual projects. This combination of managing projects, teaching project management, and helping others manage their projects has given me a unique perspective on the process and tools associated with project management. I have seen first-hand what works and what doesn't work. You may disagree with some of my suggestions, but a world without dialogue would be a pretty dull place. I challenge you to consider and test them before discarding them outright. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to influence your thinking and hopefully improve your projects.
