Back Cover Copy

Project management is one of the fastest-growing occupations in the world. The Project Management Institute, for example, has seen membership growth of more than 1,000 percent in the last 10 years. But while many of these managers know how to plan a successful project in theory, very few have the practical tools needed to navigate the politics of today’s corporate world. Project managers need more than just technical skills; they need the right communication skills to succeed. Filled with real-world examples, Project Management That Works gives you the tools you need to:

• communicate with your team as well as with stakeholders • get your team to function well • run fewer and more productive meetings • turn around failing projects • utilize data prop­erly to make emotional conversations unemotional • know when a project is really done

The only book that addresses the real challenges project managers face today, this is an acces­sible and invaluable tool that will show you how to accomplish your mission—no matter the obstacles.
