With so many project management books in print, why do projects still come in late and over budget? While other books tell you how to plan, they don't explain how to save projects in real life, when things go awry. This book identifies the 18 most pervasive causes of project failure and their warning signs, explains why they happen, and shows exactly how to overcome them. Drawing on over 30 years of frontline project management experience, I show you how to ensure you're working on the right problem, how to keep project sponsors committed, and how to ensure effective risk management. I talk about hard-won insights on realistically determining a project's scope, involving the right people in cross-disciplinary teams, managing multiple project risks, and bringing each project to a strong finish. I'll give you some tips to get all your team members on the same page, streamline that endless final 10% of your projects, and reduce last-minute rework caused by unanticipated stakeholders. I wrote this book targeted specifically to working project managers. It's concise, relevant, easy to read, full of war stories, and packed with practical resources and advice to help real people cut real project problems off at the pass. I truly hope you get some great nuggets from The Project Management Advisor and the book will help you drive project success. Best - LonnieFrom the Back Cover:
