Learning about effective project management. 19 Feb. 2012
By Poppy J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Project Managers in all industries have many aspects of a job in common. They all manage projects, define and assess each stage, create and manage budgets, time and plans of action, manage risks and close out the project by sending deliverables (or finished products) to the client.

The book (which is part of the Business Success series) uses charts, graphs, diagrams, pull outs, flow charts, cost estimates and samples to show the reader exactly how project management is performed. Each chapter answers the questions most likely to be asked regarding project management: what is a project and how it should be initiated, who is responsible, how is success determined, how is planning done, how are timescales, budgets and risks managed and kept under control, and how are the project deliverables accomplished are reviewed in the chapters.

The author writes in easy terms to read - it is as if the reader is having a low-tech casual conversation with the author. The book is that easy to follow. This is important because if you are buying the book to learn about project management because you want to get a new job as a project manager - clarity is key to grasping these strategies and techniques. If you are already a manager and want to develop skills to manage projects for your organization - the book is definitely for you as well. Any manager who has to organize, assess, develop or plan a large project could be considered a "project manager." Of course, some organizations will assign these duties to a manager, but never change his or her title to bear this name. No matter, it is still extremely valuable information to have, since any project can be better managed using these skills.

This book is highly recommended for anyone who wants a leadership position within a company.
