Project Management Survival

Book Description

Richard Jones, a technology consultant, gives advice on managing real projects – those projects where resources are scarce, time is short, and things may already be going wrong. He gives an overview of basic project definitions and types of teams, then shows how to quickly diagnose problems in an existing project. He describes how to start a new project from scratch or rebuild a troubled existing project, focusing on creation of a realistic plan for managing the project. A final section gives advice on getting the right information to make decisions and updating the plan to reflect changing situations.
