Project management is one of the fastest-growing occupations in the world. The Project Management Institute has seen membership growth of more than 1000% 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 readers the tools they need to: communicate with their team as well as stakeholders * get their teams 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 every reader how to accomplish his mission--no matter the obstacles.
