Managing Projects Well book
Audience: Project leaders and team members, and interested
Few people realize how many projects people actually manage. Or
how many of the theoretical approaches to Project Management do
not meet the test of the real world.
This intensive look at Project Management teaches people what they
need to know to lead, or be a member of, a project team.
Most Project Management texts deal predominantly with technical
areas, leaving readers ill-prepared for the real world.
Managing Projects Well looks closely at the behavioral aspects of
project management and project team participation.
The book, Managing Projects Well, shows:
- What happens when your boss decides the project's schedule
and budget, and you have to work backwards to make things
- How to communicate and present effectively within and
beyond the team
- How to cope when you do all the work, and have to manage
multiple projects and non-project time as well
- How to organize people for success, and develop ideal
methods for team member motivation
- How to change your own bad habits quickly
- What to do when things go wrong
