Suppose you are a rising star at work and the boss has given you your first assignment to head up a project. Depending on the nature of the project and what kind of work you do, you might have to engage in a variety of tasks that you haven't tackled before, such as assembling a team to complete the project on time and on budget, mapping out a plan and monitoring your progress at key steps along the way, using appropriate planning tools such as project management software or wall charts, and keeping your team motivated and on target.
Perhaps you have managed projects before, but not recently. Or, you have been given a new kind of project you are not familiar with, and you want to make sure you handle the job right. If so, you've come to the right place. The 10 Minute Guide to Project Management gives you the essence of what you need to know, in terms of successful project management from A to Z.
True to the series, each lesson can be read and absorbed in about 10 minutes. We cover crucial aspects of project management including plotting out your path, drawing upon age-old and cuttingedge supporting tools, expending your resources carefully, assembling a winning team, monitoring your progress, adjusting course (if you have to), and learning from your experience so that you will be even better at managing other projects in the future.
