I have been unable to locate project management information targeted toward instructional designers so was very happy to see this subject addressed. I found this guide to be comprehensive and well organized considering the breadth of the topics. As each sub-topic was addressed, I like the way it was defined and broken down into sections titled; Essential Ingredients, The Method, The Results. The template examples for organizing various projects were relevant and general enough to be useful for a wide range of topics. I notice that at the end of each chapter, there was a Q&A so the guide could easily be used as a textbook. This is a really good deal for a textbook in a subject that is addressed every day by professionals responsible for managing training development!

This book is disappointing. We really need a new book on project management for instructional designers. But this isn't it. Too many chapters are lists of definitions with no linking to what a project manager should actually do. There is no index, an unpardonable omission.
I acknowledge a book on this topic is hard to write. I just wrote a chapter on project management for another book. It's complicated. There are a lot of details to keep track of and the author is dealing with two related subjects. But even at the low price, skip this one. Someone will write a good book on this topic, but this isn't it.

Wow. Dorcas should be embarrassed to have her name on this book. There are grammar errors everywhere and she uses words incorrectly. It's hard to take anything in this seriously when she misuses so many words. I guess anyone can write a book these days.

As an extremely comprehensive guide to project management, this might be a good resources. I am no project management expert so I can't be sure. What I can say for sure is that there is little here for the Instructional Designer. Granted, the author does utilize an instructional case project as the example woven through the book but it is completely unrealistic and, having been involved in instructional design and development for the last 12 years, provided little useful information for my training team.

I should have known this would be the case after reading the author's bio on the back cover. She is a project manager who owns a project management consulting company. This is evident in the book and I am sure they are excellent at project management. If there is any real-world instructional design and development experience, however, I would wager it is only with the largest of companies, with equally large budgets, and with much longer time frames than the ridiculous two-week example provided.
