Written in the form of a novel, it covers the basics of project management in a friendly, interesting, and memorable way.

Against the backdrop of this personal drama, a simple, rational approach to project management unfolds. Willa s ability to grasp these principles is the key to his survival, and could be the key to yours. Making It Happen enables the reader to transform risky, real--life situations into success.
