Praise for The Project Management Workbook:
"Finally--a project management book about the human side of tackling new initiatives!...Not only will this book help your projects succeed clearly, quickly, and efficiently, but it will help you create a committed, loyal project team that can take pride in a job well done."--Barbara A. Glanz, Author, Handle with CARE and CARE Packages for the Workplace
"The real success of a project is value--how it starts-up and continues to run efficiently. To make that happen requires the input and ownership of all stakeholders--engineers, end users, vendors, and management. The Project Management Workbook is a practical, how-to guide that not only shows you how to bring them all together but how to translate that to the bottom-line."--Andrew Metropole, Sr. Project Manager, Kraft Foods North America

It's refreshing to see a book that recognizes this fact and outlines a practical, down to earth approach to help those responsible for projects meet their ultimate goal."--Jerry Welcome, VP Packaging Machinery Manufacturers InstituteAbout the Author:
