Description - Project Management by Gary R. Heerkens
Successful project management is a huge undertaking: those who excel have mastered a complex set of technical, interpersonal, and business skills. But how does the first-time project manager get a handle on where to begin? This book offers newcomers to the field a quick overview of the topic without getting bogged down in lengthy Gantt charts and complicated financial analysis. Part one, "The Project Management Process Step-by-Step," lays out for the reader the process of project management -- everything from identifying the project opportunity, to defining resource requirements, to preparing budgets, to actual project execution. Part two, "The Role of the Project Manager," focuses on building the key skills that project managers need in their role, such as relying on others to get things done, facing diverse objectives and perspectives, and motivating a team. In addition to giving new project managers a valuable, broad overview of the topic, this book will help them to identify where they will want to study further. (McGraw-Hill certainly offers a number of professional books to "graduate" to.)
