5.0 out of 5 stars Scrappy Project Management: The 12 Predictable and Avoidable Pitfalls That Every Project Faces, 25 Jan 2008
By 
This review is from: Scrappy Project Management: The 12 Predictable and Avoidable Pitfalls that Every Project Faces (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrappy meets Lazy, 3 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scrappy Project Management: The 12 Predictable and Avoidable Pitfalls that Every Project Faces (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only project management book that I actually read twice!, 10 Mar 2013
This review is from: Scrappy Project Management: The 12 Predictable and Avoidable Pitfalls that Every Project Faces (Paperback)
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"!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 18 Jun 2011
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.
