Overview

This book is about taking your project management skills to a higher level—increasing the value you bring to your clients and employer. In today's business, everyone is so focused on data that they seem to have forgotten about people. People and relationships drive business, not data. 7 Steps to Immense Success in Project Management gives you the path you need in order to achieve the highest levels of success. This book is full of real world case studies for each step and shows you what kind of results you can expect when you implement these steps. The 7 Steps are easy to remember and simple to execute. All you have to do is remember the phrase: Immense Success Comes From Creating Positive Relationships.

Description

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to run many types of projects, from small projects with one or two people that last less than a week, to projects consisting of over 40 people working different disciplines and in multiple locations for six months or more.  This wide variety of experience has given me many learning opportunities and a great deal of success.

 

I never gave much thought to what made me successful as a project manager until I was given the opportunity to mentor, manage, and work more closely with other project managers.  What I discovered was that it didn’t matter if these project managers had less than a year of experience or 20 plus years of experience, they all seemed to struggle with the same aspects of project management.  In addition to technical struggles, I noticed that their focus was so driven by data that it had a tendency to blind them from what I inherently knew to be true: people and relationships drive business!

 

After taking a step back and analyzing what it is that makes me successful, I realized that the process is not that complicated…7 Steps is all it takes to elevate your project management skills to the next level.  This book outlines those 7 Steps and shows you that all you have to do is remember: Immense Success Comes From Creating Positive Relationships.
