Review:

This book clearly and concisely lays out the fundamentals as well as detailing how even the most experienced project managers can improve their performance to successfully meet customers' expectations and respond to rapidly changing market dynamics. It will prove useful for all project managers, no matter what industry or profession they are in. --- Alan Gerwig, P.E., President, Alan Gerwig & Associates, Inc.

One of the most valuable concepts is the '12-month rule' on project duration and the reduction in the ability to influence project success as time passes. Many of us have learned this through the 'school of hard knocks.' Discussions on risk management and case examples provide for a rounded learning experience. It is more effective to learn about others mistakes and missed opportunities through reading rather than from direct experience. I recommend this book and plan to purchase it for all of the project managers in my organization. - --John P. McGrath, Ph.D., Corporate Vice President, Quality, Edwards Lifesciences LLC
