From the Back Cover:
“Succeeding in the Project Management Jungle addresses a subject that doesn’t get enough coverage in management books. It’s a practical and definitive work that will enable you to get results from your people no matter how many solid or dotted lines fill up your organization chart.” — John Berra, Senior Advisor and past Chairman, Emerson Process Management
It’s a jungle out there for project managers, and no amount of Lean, Agile, or Six Sigma finessing is going to tame a massive project that’s threatening to unravel. No matter what process you’ve got in place, there’s one key ingredient that can make or break your success: managing the people.
Introducing TACTILE Management™, a people-based project management system that works in conjunction with your organization’s existing processes. Based on the seven characteristics of successful projects—transparency, accountability, communication, trust, integrity, leadership, and execution—Succeeding in the Project Management Jungle’s system shows you how to:
· Take a project team out of its functional silos and transform it into a powerful, integrated force.
· Balance the expectations of customers, management, and project teams with the traditional technical requirements of schedule, cost, and scope.
· Use people management skills to successfully navigate each process group, including initiation, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing.
· Troubleshoot the pitfalls that frequently jeopardize knowledge-worker projects, and eliminate or minimize their impact.
Complete with practical, real-world advice from practitioners in the field and a running case study that astutely contrasts a standard project with a TACTILE-managed one, Succeeding in the Project Management Jungle is immensely practical, remarkably easy to master, and packed with invaluable insights for overworked, overstressed project leaders everywhere.
