About this title

Synopsis:

This book on Tactical Management is based on Mr. Parker's live presentations and workshops, conducted over the last twenty-five years. For those who have studied the subject and for those who are beginners, this book defines and illustrates bedrock concepts that every manager needs.

From the Author:

Someone? Somehow? Somewhere? Sometime?

Strategic decision makers must think in principle about ends and means as they frame a solution to a problem, but execution deals with particulars.

In the realm of the tactical manager there is no someone, there is only you or me. There is no somehow, there is only 'how'. Tactical management is the planning, organization, direction and supervision of available means to a chosen end.

Project and Process Management are the crucial tactical management skill sets. Like a left hand and a right hand, they are complementary and most effective when their relationship is understood and exploited.

The purpose of this book is to establish a solid-ground framework for process and project management. Through small and easy steps, you will increase your knowledge of tactical management and your confidence in evaluating the latest techniques and fads of this discipline.

In this book, you will find basic answers to questions such as:

How do experienced project managers cope with change? How can you manage without criticizing? What basic issues does a theoretical approach to process and project management sometimes overlook? What is capability, capacity, sigma, earned value, utilization, measurement precision, linearity, stability, uncertainty? What is the difference between strategic and tactical management? Why do Information Technology tools for project and process management sometimes fall short and create confusion through unintended consequences?

If you have been blitzed with management training that has left you with more questions than answers, then take a look at this book. In my experience, if the foundation is right, the more advanced material falls easily into place.
