This book puts forward a new, powerful and unambiguous view of the key skills required for successful global project leaders.

For the last 30 years I have read leading US and UK publications on leadership, project management and global joint ventures. "Scrappy Project Management" is a refreshing change from the standard business text books currently available.

Its value is in the stories and engaging language used to present a practical and empowering approach to managing people and projects. For leaders responsible for major corporate global projects to those entrepreneurs starting their own business this highly enjoyable book is a valuable resource.

For me books, all books including business books, have to be entertaining. If they are entertaining then they are readable and if they are readable then guess what? They get read - from cover to cover - more than once. They don't get flicked through, maybe a chapter or two read, and then stuck up on the bookshelf for the rest of time.

Scrappy Project Management ticks all those boxes.

Kimberly says it like it is and, based on my own 26 years in project management, it is like she says it is!

With some crazy stories, great scrappy tips, and a fast pace I recommend the book to all project managers.

This is a book that a must read for any project manager who is serious about his job. The book add more value if you manage or direct a project in Middle East where communication can be a killer. This is the second time I read this book. The first version was a hard copy and I get into habit of buying some copies to give for PM friends.
Kimberly is the master of project management and the book builds on what you learn on PRINCE2 or any other project management methodology.
I like the distinction between a project manager and a project leader.
If you are serious about project management so this book and "The project manager, mastering the art of delivery" by Richard Newton are a must read.

A brilliant, witty book full of extremely useful anecdotes and actionable (quotable) advice. If you only read one book about leading projects to a successful conclusion, make it Kimberly Wiefling's excellent "Scrappy Project Management"!

No mind blowingly new ideas in this book...but what is there is a good read, fairly well laid out and a good addition to a project manager's bookshelf.

I would recommend this as a book to glance through and as with any project management book...pick and choose from it - if needed.
