Book Description:

"While the technical side of project management is important, it's often ""people problems"" that derail even the most meticulously planned of projects. A Survival Guide for Project Managers gives you a complete understanding of what it takes to successfully finish a project, giving you not only valuable tools like Work Breakdown Schedule, Gantt Charts, and Network Analysis, but also tools to communicate, negotiate, listen, and lead.

This practical, user-friendly guide walks you through the entire project life cycle, and shows you how to:

* Develop the managerial and business skills required of a project manager.

* Resolve conflicts and improve negotiation capabilities.

* Understand and apply the technical tools of project management.

* Establish project teams, and foster collaboration among team members, and more.

Now in its second edition, the book has been revised to reflect the latest version of the PMBOK® Guide, and includes new material on topics including project risk, cost-schedule index, the project management office, and emotional intelligence as it applies to project management. Packed with useful forms, charts, and other tools, this is the ultimate resource for project managers."
