Project managers interested in aligning themselves for breakthrough results will certainly get what they are looking for in this book. In my opinion, however, the real value of BKPM happens at the next level up the organization. Executives and business leaders who apply the lessons of BKPM will be equipped to change the culture of their companies by empowering and liberating their project managers to do their best work. Using real world examples from technology projects they've successfully led, the authors share lessons learned, including their revolutionary "three sided table" perspective for running projects. So whether your "project" is running a company or working on a defined challenge within it, you'll learn strategies, tips and techniques that can be the catalyst for a productive work environment in which sacrifice and trust are the norm -- not missed deadlines, blown budgets and unhappy customers, For example, here's one of my favorite quotes from the book: "When you put the project ahead of your own career interest, the gain in extra trust actually increases the likelihood of your survival." I recommend BKPM,Tony Gruebl and Jeff Welsh of Think Systems to any successful company that wants to be reminded of what they already know, in ways they will never forget.

The need for Bare knuckled project management is now, more than ever. Over the last few years, there has been a wave of new technologies - social, mobile, analytic, cloud - that are creating new economies and destroying existing business models. Project Managers are finding themselves leading initiatives which can make or break their companies. The million dollar question is how do we prepare project managers to create biggest success stories today and growth opportunities tomorrow?

Bare knuckled Project Management came out of the author's experience in rescuing big complex failed projects. The underlying focus of the book is how to effectively manage the people involved to accomplish project's mission. It is a change from typical project management books which details on the process and the metrics. This book is a must read ( and it is a easy read) if you would like to understand how to work with sponsors and project teams, manage conflicts within the team, and motivate the team.

While there is no single recipe for success, this book definitely will teach you to get sponsors, customers, team members, project managers on the same train.

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.

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.
