Integrate the business needs and goals of your organization into every project decision you make
A well-managed project is a fundamental building block of business growth, and the project manager is the driver of that growth. The Business-Savvy Project Manager provides you with the concepts, principles, and tools you need to implement and lead projects that will consistently provide shareholders with superior return on investment.

The long-term success of an organization is based on the quality and execution of its projects. The Business-Savvy Project Manager walks you through the steps of a successful project, explaining what you must do to make each project successful from a business, as opposed to a technical, perspective.
Achieve full economic and operational success with each project
A project is much more than just a logistical exercise in staying on time and within budget. It is, in fact, a business imperative, a major financial investment with goals that must be successfully achieved if an enterprise is to remain competitively viable.
The Business-Savvy Project Manager is your guide to designing and managing projects that make meaningful, positive economic contributions to your organization. From the big-picture fundamentals of finance, accounting, and organizational management to focused techniques for designing effective projects, keeping them financially sound, and pulling long-term economic value from their results, this bottom line–driven book will supply you with the managerial knowledge and insights you need to:
At root, businesses are meant to produce positive cash flow for their investors, and projects are meant to help businesses achieve that financial objective. The problem is, many organizations lose sight of business goals, judging the success or failure of critical projects more on the technical aspects of staying within budgeted time and cost constraints, rather than on the real-world aspects of economic value provided.
The Business-Savvy Project Manager shows you how to combine the two ideas into a results-driven, innovative, and economically productive approach to managing and measuring each project, based on its success at achieving business goals. Whether you are a practicing project manager or an organizational manager charged with conceiving and designing projects, it will show you how to increase overall cash flow, and gain full economic value, from each project you pursue.About the Author:
