CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Learn how to be the safe pair of hands in your organisation, consistently
delivering exceptional projects on time and to budget. The steep rise in demand
for good project managers in recent years has been mirrored by the publication
of book after book setting out the formal processes and mechanics of project
management. Whether they are textbooks or books aimed at the practitioner, they
all usually cover the same ground - the ABCs of project management. But anyone
who has ever managed a project or overseen the management of a project in the
real world knows that there is a significant difference between mastering the
ABCs and mastering the practice of project management itself. It's not that the
formal methodologies don't work, but rather that it's only half of the picture.
To go from good to great in project management, you need to shift your focus
back to the real basics of management. In this illuminating book, Richard
Newton, a successful project manager with twenty years' experience, will show
you several ways you can elevate your game. Topics covered include: - What is
successful delivery?- Communications -- learning to understand who the
customers are, what they want, and how best to communicate with them - What
actually is your project? Understanding the importance of scope and how best to
define it - How to get your project started - Optimal personal styles for
project managers - Managing your project - Getting the best out of your project
team - A quick survey of the most important tools and techniques - When to
constructively kill a project Whether you are just starting out in project
management, or have a few years under your belt and want to achieve real
mastery, The Project Manager will help you deliver more.
