From the Back Cover:

Proven Techniques for Keeping Simultaneous Projects On Course­­and Ensuring Their Successful Completion

As a manager today you must be a master juggler, responsible for keeping several balls in the air even as new balls are randomly tossed in from all sides. Managing Multiple Projects provides the organizational skills and management strategies you need to tackle multiple projects, roles, and responsibilities­­and get the results you want. Turn to this latest addition to McGraw-Hill's skills-based Briefcase Books series for hands-on techniques you can use to:

  • Develop a reliable, repeatable system for addressing competing demands
  • Work with others to effectively allocate workloads
  • Handle the emotional demands­­both for yourself and others­­of project overload

While numerous books have addressed specific project management issues, few­­until now­­have contained proactive strategies for consistently achieving multiple objectives. Managing Multiple Projects draws on skills from time management, task completion, organizational psychology, and more to provide a proven system for easily managing concurrent projects, and guiding each to its successful completion.

Briefcase Books, written specifically for today's busy manager, feature eye-catching icons, checklists, and sidebars to guide managers step-by-step through everyday workplace situations. Look for these innovative design features to help you navigate through each page:

  • Clear definitions of important terms, concepts, and jargon
  • Tips and tactics for facilitating multiple projects
  • Proven how-to hints for addressing specific situations
  • Practical advice for minimizing unexpected project errors
  • Warning signs that new activities and initiatives are going awry
  • Case studies of effective multiple project management in action
  • Procedures, techniques, and tactics for implementing this book's ideas
