Processes don't drive projects; people do.

Successful project management is ultimately about effective communication, and more broadly, effective people management. Most books, however, deal largely with process - the mechanical, methodological side, and play down the human side.

The Project Manageris a fresh approach to project management: it moves beyond the formal methodologies and techniques to shed light on the core skills that will make you a great project manager. It puts the project manager centre stage and provides you with an invaluable set of experience-based lessons, tips, and advice to help you consistently deliver the results you want.

Whether you are a project manager yourself, or someone who works with or recruits project managers, this book will be essential reading.

From the Author:

I started this book when I had a team of approximately 50 project and programme managers working for me, and finished it when I was working in another organisation with a large pool of project managers. It outlines my experiences and research into what makes the most successful project managers. I fully accept the need for project management standards backed by recognised accreditations, but rarely is it the fact that a project manager is qualified that makes them the best project manager. There are a range of interpersonal skills, attitudes and approaches which really separate the best from the average - and these are largely learnable skills. Although I do look at the normal tools and processes of project management, this book is more focussed on those differentiating characteristic. The primary audience for this book is someone who probably has some or even extensive project experience and wants to step up to the next level. (If you are a complete beginner my Project Management Step-by-Step may be a better initial choice).

From the Back Cover:

“ ... [shows what] really makes projects and project managers successful. A must read for everyone interested in understanding what levers to pull to improve their delivery capability.”Perry Childs, Director, Childs Consulting.

 

"A simply written and well structured book that is a crucial support for both experienced project / programme managers and people new to the project management environment.” Paul Gilhooley, Project Director, Openreach (a BT Group business)
