Editorial Reviews

Review

"Here there be stories! Gazza's Guide to Practical Project Management is an experience grounded book that describes the importance in project success of both people and process, and he does this through the sharing of the authors stories from projects past. Readable, practical and a lot of fun, which as the author of The Lazy Project Manager I always feel is important."
Peter Taylor, The Lazy Project Manager

"I can thoroughly recommend Gazzas' book as a practical guide based on real life lessons learned, an uncanny eye for doing what is right, and the ability to put all of this into a great story. Take some time to fully digest the lessons, advice and wisdom that Gazza has to offer and you can practically guarantee you will be a better project manager."
Sean Whitaker, PMP - The Practically Perfect Project Manager

"Gazza's Guide to Practical PM is a book on practical communications in disguise - that's refreshing - because it focuses on the people aspect of Management and steers away from the notion that PM is about shuffling papers, reports and various tools of measurement. If you'd like a change in your PM reading - this is a good place to start."
Peter de Jager, A Pocketful of Change and So You're a Manager - Now What?

About the Author

Gary M. Nelson (Gazza) is  passionate about sharing knowledge and making Project Management concepts more accessible, particularly to new and aspiring Project Managers (of all ages). Said another way, he likes to tell stories to help convey complex concepts in a way that helps the concepts "stick". Who says learning shouldn't be fun?

Born in Calgary, Alberta (Canada), Gary moved west to B.C. at the very early age of 2, where he spent most of his formative years - aside from a 6 year stint where he learned to appreciate living in a very small town of 800 people. He then attended high school in Surrey, B.C. and went on to graduate from Simon Fraser University (BC, Canada) in 1989 with a major in Computing science and a minor in English - an odd but useful mix (a techie who can write clearly)!

Gary was tricked into becoming a Project Manager by his first manager, and has never looked back.  His international experience includes projects in New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the US and Canada, working on projects in the Telecom, Student Information Systems, Local Government and Healthcare sectors.

Having wanted to write books since high school, it took many long years of successful procrastination until he finally felt he had something useful to write about, and wrote his first book of stories in 2012...on Project Management, of all things. Next, presented with the terrifying challenge of writing for children, he enlisted his youngest sons to be the first victims (reviewers and editors) and the Project Kids series of books were born. Several years on, he is amazed to see the books being translated into multiple languages, and reaching into schools and homes around the world.

Gary currently lives in New Zealand with his wife, three sons and two cats, and is loving every bit of it.
