Format: Hardcover
I'm a lawyer turned businessman. As I've discovered, project management is synonymous with managing a business. EVERYTHING is a project. So I've been doing lots of project management reading. Lots of great materials out there but perhaps none as practical as this one (I admit to not having read every one-- though I must be getting close). Authors Brown and Hyer have offered an accessible guide for managing projects of all types. The books shows how to ask the right questions at the front end, clearly define the project, involve the team in planning, and apply just enough of the technical tools to suit the situation. I especially like the way they combined traditional methods, team-based tools, and leadership dimensions of project work - no other book seems to do this so effectively. Definitely a valuable addition to my executive library. I keep it close.

Two wishes; that all academics would use this book in their project management classes, and that all project managers would read this book. If you only read one book on project management it should be this one. It starts and ends with the real life appreciation that while there may be a project "manager" that in reality project management is a team effort, formal or informal. All the elements of project management are here and the textbook type presentation is ideal for the person new to project management or the seasoned manager wondering what went wrong, or right, on their current project. The book is, cover to cover, filled with wise advice and observation. "Many people who are starting out with software tend to believe it will manage a project for them.", "ask stressed and busy project contributors for percent complete estimates, and you might wind up with a team mutiny", "the student syndrome is the tendency for project team members to delay the start of their work until the last minute", and "laboratory research has found that when group size exceeds five, decision quality deteriorates". None of this is off-the-cuff advice. All is backed up with extensive footnotes and convenient chapter-end bibliographies that make it easy to delve deeper into any topic. A nice thing about this book that makes it almost unique in its field is that it is written in a very easy to read style and despite being comprehensive it is short, only about 300 pages. For people who came to project management through operations research classes, as I did, this gives you the 90% of "how to do it" you missed. For those who came to project management because they were discovered to be good at getting projects done despite the odds this is the formal background you are missing.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
This is the best and most current book on Project Management I have seen. As a project manager for many years, a certified Project Management Professional and a professor at a major engineering college, I have been frustrated that the "current" textbooks had nothing new to say. While the standard textbooks (Kerzner, Meridith & Mantel, et.al.) all cover fundamental topics in Project Management, this book actually tells you how to use modern tools and techniques to rally a team and complete a project successfully. This book explains the theory behind a concept and then shows you how to actually implement the concept and check to make sure you got the results you desired. The approach, the case studies and homework exercise were fresh and effective and this text should appeal to audiences of all ages.

I had ordered this book awhile back, about early January, and I have yet to receive it...HOWEVER...I sent them a message concerning this, they replied almost immediately, worked with me, and were extremely understanding of the book getting lost in the mail and gave me a refund while covering the insurance and delivery costs! Super helpful and understanding! Definitely recommend for great customer service!

I bought new book because of needed CD. The CD was not MS Project as required, it was MS Ultra Office, which did not include MS Project required for my course. I do not blame the sellers, this is a publisher issue. Without appropriate CD, this will cause issues for the class. Seller's were excellent, book arrived ahead of schedule in NEW condition. Thank you so much.

This is an excellent reference for anyone working on building Project Management skills. I beleive that book was designed as a text for classes at the prestigous Thundebird School of Management. The author has presented the material in a very organized and matter of factly way. At the end of each chapter are exercises and assignments for team work building. While I read as an individual, I did review the exercises and found them quite helpful in stimulating thought process. This is not a book that follows the PMBOK by the numbers and so therefore, is not a reference for studying for the PMP however, it is a great reference book for aspiring Project Managers who would like to build team building.

The $15 Unknown binding book is not the textbook described. It appears to be related but not at all what I expected and delayed my getting the actual book.
