From The Back Cover

"Leading companies that are positioning themselves for the future rather than the present are asking the project managers to participate in project selection, scoping, and estimation as well as management. Delivering Exceptional Project Results offers a glimpse into the future role of the project manager. If your company believes that project failure is an option, then perhaps you should not read this book."

Harold Kerzner, Ph.D. Best-selling Author,
Professor Emeritus, Baldwin-Wallace College


"I really enjoyed reading this book. The chapters, full of valuable insights well beyond the typical project management presentations, are introduced with diverse and engaging historic case examples. Executives faced with project portfolio management, or who are venturing into the area for the first time, will find the latter part of the book particularly valuable as new solutions are offered for those seemingly intractable problems of project portfolio management."

R. Max Wideman, PMI Fellow
AEW Services and Management Consulting


"Delivering Exceptional Project Results" is a definite must read for any executive, functional director or project manager. The author clearly demonstrates how to deliver successful products and services by employing proper project selection, scoping and management techniques. This book provides you with practical, hands-on tools and techniques that can be deployed on your own projects right away."

Matt Walters,
Director of Technology, Tyze Personal Networks

From the Author:

I hope that, after reading this book, junior project managers and technical team members will feel compelled to share it with their superiors so that these superiors can learn how to select projects properly and gain an understanding of the daily challenges faced by project managers. It is also hoped that senior managers who read this book will realize that there are still some improvements to be made to their project management practices and will pass this book on to their subordinates.
 
Enjoy!
Jamal Moustafaev
