Product description


[The author] tries to focus on the use of standards within project management not for their own sake but for the betterment of the project and its delivery. Good comment sense stuff. - Health Informatics Now --Health Informatics Now


Ninety seven percent of successful projects are led by an experienced project manager. But getting experience takes time. "Project Management in the Real World" is a short cut to this experience: it summarizes over 250 years' of experience from professional project managers. Presented in a quick and easy to read format, it contains a wealth of knowledge that can be practically apply in a short period of time. Anecdotes and tips are backed up with theory and references, along with case studies from the US, Holland, France, Australia as well as the UK. Filled with snappy, 'how-to' tips and ideas, project managers will benefit from solid, innovative ideas and learn tricks from professionals to help them deliver projects more successfully. Success in project management terms is measured as work completed on time, within budget, delivering what the customer asked for. A happy team is an added bonus, and one that this book does not underestimate. Readers will discover hints and tips on controlling budget, time, scope and people to help make sure their projects are not some of the 84 per cent that "Computer Weekly" estimates fail each year.

Unlike other books available on the subject, "Project Management in the Real World" is not focused on the traditional 'start to finish' process of managing a project. "Project Management in the Real World" explores: managing project budgets; managing project scope; managing project teams; managing project plans; and, managing yourself. "Project Management in the Real World" is aimed at both professional public and private sector project managers with some experience of managing projects. It is a trusted-advisor for the time-starved professional to help realise strategies to effectively implement changes.
