Project management is not easy. It is a complicated, multilayered matter, whether you manage projects for your entire company, for a department, or for yourself. And using a project management software program isn't enough, as many project managers painfully learn. This book takes you through 10 steps that, if followed correctly, will lead to successful project management. You'll learn how to determine whether something is a project or a task, build a business case, define the scope of the project, weigh the risks and constraints, collaborate, create a project blueprint, determine the tangible and intangible components of a project, complete a project, and then review the lessons learned. At every step, author Lou Russell presents the key questions to ask as well as the potential risks of skipping certain aspects of project management. The accompanying CD-ROM includes exercises, tips, tools, and easy-to-use interactive learning aids for trainers and for anyone interested in improving their project management skills.
