Managing an IT project is not an easy job. I recently started a job at a new department, and found out I had a geographical distributed team spread out all over the Netherlands. When travelling to my team members I found out they have never been together with the whole team. So I decided to write a draft project charter, based on Johanna's suggestions.

Something happened, the team members replied very positively about my initiative and wanted to write it together. So we did! In 2 hours discussing the vision of our product we learned a lot about everyone's perspective. We had some hard discussions about defining the succes criteria, but it's suppossed to be hard. But nobody complained! One of the team members said this: "For the first time , I have the feeling we are getting of the rollercoaster." Today
we started to build a positive shared history.

Personnaly I like the following chapters best;
1. Starting a project
6. Recognizing and avoiding schudule games
11. Creating and using a project dashboard
12. Managing multisite projects (en daar is al snel sprake van)
13. Integrating testing into the project
16. Managing the project portfolio

O before I forget: stop multitasking!

Pragmatic? Absolutely. Real, applicable every-day solutions to common problems.

This is the best book on project management and one of the best books on my book shelf.

I'm trying to get every project manager I know to read this book. I even gave one of them my own copy.

Johanna is doing an excellent job explaining how to try to reach the middle of the project management road - not too tight and not too loose.
