In recent years there has been a steep rise in demand for good project managers. Both textbooks and books aimed at the practitioner, continually cover the same ground - the ABCs of project management, you might call it. 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, shows you several ways you can elevate your game.
