4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, with a key deficiency. 23 Oct. 2013
By Jon B. - Published on
As introduction, I am a practicing PMP certified project manager. I use this system.

The brilliant part is this book lays out a very simple matrix for tracking and reporting key project deliverables, identifying responsible parties, and reporting progress to higher management in a compact, executive-friendly format. After I read this book, I adopted the methodology because it saves me that most valuable resource -- time.

The Excel templates are available for an additional fee, but I'm too damn cheap to buy them and good enough with Excel to make my own templates. I also created tabs for an action item list, a risk register, an issues list, a requirements list, a contact list,... you get the idea. These weren't even mentioned in the book. What I ended up with is a project notebook that is a one-stop-shop for everything but the meeting minutes. The system outlined in the book is good, but incomplete.

The other key deficiency I learned to deal with is that every place I've been insists on a plan either in MS Project or Clarity/Open Workbench. Most places also have specific reporting requirements and their own formats for these reports. You either sell the boss on this system, or you conform to their ways and use this as your own personal backup. I'll give the boss some credit, as Clarity or Project Server will allow reporting capabilities that a simple Excel spreadsheet will not, but I personally don't like to enter the same information in two different places. It's extra work to keep several systems updated, but that's the way of the world. You can use this system, but you will either sell it to the key stakeholders or end up doing extra duty.

I'm sort of new to this Amazon review thing, but if you want a copy of my consolidated project management Excel workbook, feel free to contact me. It's gratis. I'm all for extending best practices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy To Spend Time with Such a Practical & Useful Book! 12 Jun. 2013
By Susan Kruger, M.Ed.-SOAR Study Skills - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am the CEO of a small, yet rapidly growing business. I have no background in project management and needed something to help me train a few employees on how to organize projects and initiatives. This perfectly solved my needs!

I am a firm believer in The 80/20 Principle: The Secret to Achieving More with Less and this book is an excellent example of 80/20 in practice. It's a great primer on project management, covering the most essential elements of project planning and collaboration. Through the process of assembling this visual display of data, my small team can quickly pick up the most essential 80% of effective project management.

And of course, as the title suggests, it lays out the process for effectively coordinating all elements of a project on ONE page! Those elements include: objectives, sub-objectives, tasks, timeline, risks, accountability of team members, accountability metrics (including budget), qualitative notes, forecast, and summary.

Content I Found Particularly Helpful:

- Most essential communication tips for collaboration (p 3 & 4).
- "How to" chapters are: Chpt 4, 5, & 6.
- Agile project management is covered in chapters 7, 8, 9. (This book assumes some prior understanding of agile PM. I am completely unfamiliar with the difference between "regular" and "agile" and struggled to fully comprehend the difference from this book. With that said, I followed the content of these chapters just fine.)
- Chapter 10 = "How to Think About Projects." This will be helpful for training novice project managers and is probably a good refresher of fundamentals for experienced PMs.
- Chapter 12 = "Consulting and Marketing with OPPM." This chapter explores how the OPPM can be used to make proposals and communicate with clients effectively. I am very jazzed about this concept!
- BONUS: Training videos and templates available at the book's website.

Having worked in the corporate and entrepreneurial world, I can't imagine an organization that would not benefit from the OPPM. Non-profit organizations, too!

Glad to have spent time with a book that is so informative and will prove to be very useful...tomorrow!

5.0 out of 5 stars The New One-Page Project Manager 26 Dec. 2012
By Mike Collins - Published on
For every person involved in project management, The New One-Page Project Manager (OPPM) is a `must-read'. Why? Because most of us in project management face the same problems over and over. A few of the problems that we face are:

* Many of our project management tools are so cumbersome and time-intensive that they actually reduce our time for project management. Our time to creatively think about how to make the project successful gives way to the drudgery of maintaining the plan.

* Many times, we find ourselves mired in the maintenance of our project plans.

* The tools often require that we use them on a very frequent, if not on a daily basis in order for us to maintain a working proficiency with the tool.

* Our project management plans often lag the actual project. The plans then become more of an after-the-fact reporting tool rather than a dynamic tool that drives and enhances project performance.

* Often the plan deteriorates to nothing more than a basis for determining who is at fault for poor project performance - a tool for blaming.

* It is also not unusual to see a project start delayed in order to allow more time for project planning, How ridiculous is that?

* In the end, many project management plans are so complex, convoluted and out of touch with the actual project that one only reads the plan or uses the plan if required to do so.

The OPPM methodology addresses these problems and many more in the simplest form possible or with what the author's term, `serious simplicity'. How important is serious simplicity? Note that every problem stated above develops because of a lack of simplicity. The simplicity of the OPPM returns to us the time to really manage and most importantly the time for creative thought. The OPPM takes us out of the mode of being a slave to the tool and becomes instead the tool we have wanted from the beginning - a tool that truly enables us as project managers.

Then as an added bonus, the authors turn their time and attention to the needs of project planning for the leading edge software development practice - `agile'. The fit and use of the OPPM in the agile world of rapid software development is a match made in heaven. The author's timing in this arena could not be more perfect. If you are in software development and want to increase the frequency and quality of your software releases, this is the tool that brings scrums, iterations, releases, white-boarding, progress communication, and scheduling all together into a single package and on one sheet of paper.

The simplicity of the OPPM makes it understandable. Because it is understandable, it communicates. Because it communicates, it enables each of us to become much better and more efficient project managers.

The few dollars anyone will spend on this book will be returned a thousand-fold to those get ahead of the rest of the world through the use of the OPPM. The New One-Page Project Manager is a 5-star read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic 16 May 2013
By John A. Berilla Jr. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very basic project management information....although the simple "one pager" is a decent "A3-like" tool, that is about all you get for your money. In addition, I was under the impression that the book came with software that included the document (which is essentially an x-matrix document in excel) yet mine did not...I could be mistaken on the latter.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Page Project Manager: Worth its weight in gold! 20 Dec. 2012
By Amazonfan - Published on
The new One Page Project Manager by authors Clark and Mick Campbell is one of best business books I've read in years. Their profoundly simple methodology can facilitate the management of an t endless array of project variables in a way the keeps the most important elements right in your face. Many projects fail because important details get lost in a mountain of analysis or crowded out by other distractions. You can't dodge critical realities when using this method for managing projects with tight timelines and budgets. The authors have gone to great efforts to explain how this tool can deliver the goods for projects large and small. It's by far the best project management book I've ever read.
