Overview
A guide for CEO's, directors and middle managers who want to understand the world of project management and the people practicing it.
Description

Get to know the basics across a number of project management disciplines, learn about the terms and the tools that project managers use and find out how they fit into the business as usual.

The book gives you, a non-project manager, an easy way to understand and talk to project managers in their own language. Learn about the essential concepts and philosophies behind modern project management, how to achieve harmony between projects and business as usual, how to employ and cooperate with project managers for the most benefit to the organization as a whole and what all the new concepts and terms actually mean - including how you yourself can use them as a line manager.

You will gain new insights, such as:

  • Why adding more people to a project might slow it down
  • Why buffers are bad for you
  • Why estimates are never accurate
  • What do project managers really want? (and it is not your job)
  • Why experts are not always the ideal project managers
  • When to change the project manager

The book is structured for easy reading, with short chapters optimized for reading during the morning commute. With just one short chapter every day, you’ll be up to speed with the essentials of modern project management in less than a month - or you could just read the entire book over a weekend, of course.
