From the Back Cover:

The power of an American Management Association project management seminar—right in your hands!

“A robust tutorial [and] a comprehensive refresher.” — Quality Progress

Every project is unique, but sound project management principles are universal. For years, Larry Richman has taught these principles and the go-to practical strategies that go with them from bestselling American Management Association seminars. Now fully updated to reflect up-to-the-minute changes to the AMA course and to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) as published by the Project Management Institute (PMI), the second edition of Improving Your Project Management Skills provides a budget- and schedule-friendly alternative to the full course.

Designed with maximum flexibility and applicability in mind, this book helps you:

· Define project scope and requirements

· Create a Work Breakdown Structure

· Diagram activity sequences and networks

· Eliminate sources of error

· Monitor and control your projects at every stage

· Lead and direct your project team with better people skills

· Identify, minimize, and manage risk

· Respond to changing directives and recover from missteps

· Improve decision-making processes

· Close projects smoothly

· Document and apply lessons learned

· And much more

Improving Your Project Management Skills takes you through the entire project cycle, from making the business case for the PM approach and for individual projects to record keeping and performance reporting, and gives you the tools and methods to keep any project on time, on budget, on target, and in sync with organizational objectives—every step of the way.

Larry Richman is a certified Project Management Professional® (PMP®) with more than 30 years of experience teaching and practicing project management.
