9780273723424: The Project Manager: Mastering the Art of Delivery (2nd Edition)

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.
