'Managing Projects' from the 20-Minute Manager series is a concise, easy to follow overview for project management. It's one of the stronger short overview books I've read. I felt like there was enough reference here to attempt and run certain projects.

Key concepts include discovering what key stakeholders want from the project, how to schedule realistically, how to bring together the right team (and what to do with team conflicts), and how to assess the project. Projects in the real world are rarely without hiccups and the book also addresses these with good sections on scope creep and how to address budget overruns.

Included are some practical charts and tables for many segments of a project. It packs a lot into a short volume and would make a handy quick reference.

I was given a review copy of this ebook by Harvard Business Review Press and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this book.

On this book it is very clear what are the phases of a project management (planing, building up, implementation and close out). And I acknowledged that the first step to do is to define the real problem, the who will be involved and what this project or solution will achieve.
