From the Back Cover:

Strategies to keep every project on time, under budget...and problem-free. More than 50 percent of the work in a typical organization is done in a project format. While each of these projects must be managed, too often the employees named to manage them are given little if any training in the skills they will need to successfully complete the project. The Project Manager's Desk Reference, Second Edition, uses results-oriented language and easy-to-understand examples to detail how you can complete any project on time, within budget, and at the desired performance level.

Updated and revised from its best-selling first edition­­which has become one of today's most trusted all-in-one project management resource­­this ready-access toolbox will show you how to: develop project plans using Work Breakdown Structures, PERT, CPM, and Gantt schedules; conduct risk analysis; design a project control system; use earned value analysis to track projects; communicate effectively with all levels of your team; conduct the essential post-project "lessons learned" review. The secrets to successful project management are knowledge, preparation, and an ability to keep the project on track. The Project Manager's Desk Reference arms you with today's most comprehensive and understandable project management resources, providing you the foundation you need to manage any project to its successful completion.
