Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for any project manager that wants to be successfully in the real world of project management. One of the biggest questions I have asked is how come we are all getting certifications based on theory that is 90% not applicable to the real project world. I never heard a stronger response until this book. This book does not tell you why or why not we are getting those certifications but shows in a very thoughtful way how a project manager can be successful in the world that we live in which makes this book 110% applicable. (maybe the first of its kind)

This was the first project management related book that I have read where I truly felt the authors understood the realities of projects, people, process and organizational culture. The book also uses pop culture references which not only adds humor but helps the reader quickly relate the concept to something that is familiar facilitating the quick understanding and embracing of the text

I cannot say enough good things. My wish is that more people in our field would read and become enlightened by this movement called BKPM.

Format: Paperback
Bare Knuckled Project Management is a breakthrough system designed to mitigate project risks by proficiently confronting champions, managers and issues throughout the project.

The authors introduce a system to increase project accountability and control by redistributing traditional project management roles and responsibilities. Gruebl and Welch have refined project management leadership through years of experience to effectively challenge champions and teams with a measured degree of stress, unease, instability and unpredictability as a catalyst to ensure delivery of breakthrough solutions. Champions receive pushback and teams are driven to dig deeper, confront challenges and deliver timely and substantial solutions.

This book is awesome! Having over 13 years experience working in 7 different project offices, I have seen the good, bad and ugly in project outcomes. This book outlines no nonsense project management fundamentals and uses down to earth terminology to help project managers achieve positive project outcomes.

Most noteworthy is the three sided table (roles of customer/sponsor, BKPM and team) and how this dynamic is crucial to project success. Additionally, the information on risk and conflict management is especially helpful. I gained a new perspective from this book and it opened my eyes to new and better ways to achieve success in managing projects which I will apply on projects.

Format: Paperback
What do the Pinto car and Challenger shuttle have in common? Read the book to find out the pivotal common denominator in two of the United States major project failures.

Don't let the book's size or simple layout fool you. The authors present a compelling argument for a fundamental change in the way corporate and government executives and management pursue value. The message is powerful and often over looked or simply ignored. Fundamental rules of human behavior trump PMBOK, Agile and the like.

This book is long overdue. Read it.
