Synopsis

Ninety seven percent of successful projects are led by an experienced project manager. But getting experience takes time. "Project Management in the Real World" is a short cut to this experience: it summarizes over 250 years' of experience from professional project managers. Presented in a quick and easy to read format, it contains a wealth of knowledge that can be practically apply in a short period of time. Anecdotes and tips are backed up with theory and references, along with case studies from the US, Holland, France, Australia as well as the UK. Filled with snappy, 'how-to' tips and ideas, project managers will benefit from solid, innovative ideas and learn tricks from professionals to help them deliver projects more successfully. Success in project management terms is measured as work completed on time, within budget, delivering what the customer asked for. A happy team is an added bonus, and one that this book does not underestimate. Readers will discover hints and tips on controlling budget, time, scope and people to help make sure their projects are not some of the 84 per cent that "Computer Weekly" estimates fail each year.

Unlike other books available on the subject, "Project Management in the Real World" is not focused on the traditional 'start to finish' process of managing a project. "Project Management in the Real World" explores: managing project budgets; managing project scope; managing project teams; managing project plans; and, managing yourself. "Project Management in the Real World" is aimed at both professional public and private sector project managers with some experience of managing projects. It is a trusted-advisor for the time-starved professional to help realise strategies to effectively implement changes.

Lots of tips 15. März 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book has a lot of specific good ideas gathered from a wide range of projects.

It is one of the few PM books coming from an IT organization that focuses more on the soft side of project management than on system development life-cycles. The material addresses the people factors of projects without becoming preachy. Each chapter provides an anecdote as an example, discusses the issue, and provides specific tips and ideas on how to handle the situation.

One rather unique chapter deals with self-promotion and office politics. Much as we hate this aspect of work, it is what it is. There are few texts that pack even a tenth of the useful observations on this subject in their entire volume as this "chapter" - really 4-5 pages - contains into such a small space.

This book differs greatly from Rita Mulcahy's "PM Crash Course", which walks through the PMBOK skills. As the author notes from the beginning - this is not an entry-level text for project managers. It is the kind of book where you shake your head as you go through the anecdotes, thinking "been there, done that"; the proposed resolutions are practical and do-able. Probably the closest analogous text I can think of is "The Project Manager's Survival Guide".

This is a fast read, and written in a fairly entertaining manner. But this is not designed to be read at a sitting and absorbed. Consider it as a job aid when you are in a tricky situation, so you can pull out this book instead of pulling out your hair.

The book is published by a British professional association. Amazon says it may take up to a month to deliver this book and that is about what I experienced.

Forget the Standards, Focus on the Soft Skills 11. Juni 2009
Von Dave Garrett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In this book, Dr. Harrin teaches the reader what every project manager eventually learns through experience. These are the the bits of advice you don't expect to find in a book, but more of what you would hear from a mentor. So, mentors - give this to the Project Managers who are learning the ropes from you. For those who are just getting started (and are confused and bored by most of the PM books out there), read each chapter and take it to heart. Putting the author's tips into action will allow you to manage like you have 5 years experience after that first year of practice.
