Whether you are organising an important event or heading up a large team, running a project can be a daunting process. Project management is fraught with perils; unfinished and unsuccessful projects are everywhere. In fact, it’s more common than not for projects to fail. Spiralling costs and missed deadlines are just part of everyday life for many project managers.

But project management doesn’t have to be like this. It is possible to manage projects that consistently succeed. Brilliant Project Management condenses over thirty years of hands-on project management experience to show you what to do in simple, smart and practical steps.

Discover what the best project managers know, say and do – so you won't just be good, you'll be brilliant.

From the Author:

In this book we've distilled down what we think it takes to be a brilliant project manager. We've drawn on the good, the bad and the ugly - and the eccentric. But above all, we've thought long and hard about what we've learned from rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands dirty. Between us we've got over thirty years of Barker and Cole hands-on project management experience. That's plenty of time to learn lessons at the school of hard knocks!

Our advice has been packaged up as a guide book to project management. You can dip into the topics that interest you most, or read it from cover to cover. Like any guide book, we've had to be selective about the subjects we explore. However, we've focussed our attention on what you'll find of most practical use and can immediately apply. We'll show you the tricks of the trade and the traps to avoid. Best of all, this advice is tried and tested in the real world of project management.

We've got plenty to say about both the traditional project management topics, as well as the people side of the job that often gets overlooked. Project managers don't just struggle with the intricacies of plans and risk logs, they struggle with people too.
