More About the Author

I am an author, consultant, programme manager and speaker. I also help to run two small businesses. The common themes are getting things done and accomplishing goals - as an individual or in a team, working as a project lead, a line manager or a consultant. I work internationally.

In my books I look for interesting ways of achieving goals, focussing on practicality and usability. I aim to be clear, comprehensive and enjoyable to read. My books have been translated into many languages and won awards, including the Management Book of the Year 2013. I have written for beginners as well as the experienced, and for both business and personal situations.

If you have questions or comments on my writing or anything else, feel free to contact me.

Product Description

From the Author

This is very much an introductory guide to project management. It was written for someone who has a project to run, but is not quite sure how to go about it.

I wrote it to be straightforward and practical - but it really works! The sort of person I had in mind when writing it was either a professional manager who has lots of experience, but has not been responsible for a project before - or someone delivering a project in their private life, such as renovating a house, who wants a process to help them get through the work. It is, as the title implies, a step-by-step guide, walking you through the whole lifecycle of a project. It will also be interesting to anyone who wants to train people in a simple but effective project management approach. It is probably less relevant to professional project managers, unless you are at the very start of your career.

From the Back Cover

The proven, practical guide to running a successful project, every time

 

“This straightforward and insightful approach gives results. It provides enough structure to ensure visibility and reliable delivery without smothering you with paperwork. It's no nonsense real change for the real world.” Matthew Dearden, CEO, BT Directories

 

You’ve got an important project to run. You need to know what to do, in what order, to make sure it all runs smoothly. You want to come out of it with the desired result, and looking good. This book is for you.

 

Project Management Step by Step is the proven, practical guide to running a highly successful project, one step at a time. It breaks down the management of the project into easy stages that will ensure you cover everything, at the right time, to bring about a successful delivery.

 

Refreshingly jargon-free, it’s a book for anybody who doesn’t need in-depth theory and principles of various project management techniques, but rather just wants a foolproof guide to making sure their project runs smoothly, on time and to budget. It offers an approach robust enough to ensure your success, but simple enough to be immediately applicable.

 

This is the fast track guide to becoming a competent and polished project manager.

 

“A great approach, simple to understand, yet powerful in application. It delivers the project results!”  Dave Keighley, Managing Director Operations and Logistics, Virgin Media

Format: Paperback
A copy of this book was given to me when I started the implementation of a large project and I am very grateful for it - hence this review. I have rarely seen a book explain things so practically and I could imagine it being tremendously useful in a very wide range of situations. My opinion? Well worth it.

Format: Paperback
This book is a concise easy to read guide to the essentials of Project Management. Richard's writing style is very personable. My girlfriend did an advanced diploma in Project Management a few years ago. I read all handouts/information provided my the college, including the recommended book which took around four pages to make one point. Myself and my girlfriend are agreed that all the principles of project management are covered here in a succinct and accessible manner. A book does not have to 500 long and jargon laden to be good.

Personally I found the book really helpful, I have completed a few projects without any formal training and subsequently read this book and it reaffirms all my beliefs. Now if I am working on a project and if I doubt myself in any moment I reference the book in my mind to ensure I am taking the right approach.

Project Management in its essence, is simple, for some people it comes naturally and can see things very clearly and others they need more formal training, whichever one you are you need to read the book, it has all you need as a quick reference or to help you understand Project Management, in a step by step approach.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent introduction to Project Management. It is simple, well laid out and can be digested in small chunks, exactly as you would wish to approach a project. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wishing to develop an understanding of what project management is and how to go about it.

It's descriptive, but really sticks to the step by step approach and therefore fails to convey project management in real life. I read it as my first book about project management and it gave me a good basis to then build up on with further reading (possibly about project management but from different angles).

This is a well written book that demystifies a lot of project management jargon and focuses on the essentials of delivering projects.

I found this to be immensely useful. It basically covers everything that you want from an introduction to project management. The templates supplied from the website are very good as well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought this book was great. It's just the right amount of detail for anyone to pick up and has some great ideas in it. I found the flow of some of the material in the third section a little choppy, but not so much that it was confusing.

I think my only criticism was that the author only really used tables as planning tools - there are lots of other kinds of planning tools to use so it might have been nice to touch on some of those.
