Successful Project Management: Applying Best Practices and Real-World Techniques with Microsoft Project--New from Microsoft Press
Sebastopol, CA—Learn best practices and proven methods from project management pros—and apply these newfound skills with Microsoft® Project 2010. In Successful Project Management: Applying Best Practices and Real-World Techniques with Microsoft® Project (Microsoft Press, $34.99 USD), project management expert and veteran author Bonnie Biafore shows you how to manage projects efficiently and effectively, shares the real-world experiences of project managers in several industries, and shows you how to put the best practices and hard-won lessons of experts to work using powerful Project 2010 tools.
"Project management skills can help people advance in their careers, keep their jobs, or get a new job," says Biafore. "Yet most project management textbooks are dry and difficult to get through. I wanted to write a book about project management that was easy to read and engaging, but also provided practical and pragmatic advice for project managers."
With Successful Project Management, you will learn to:
- Work effectively with project stakeholders, management, and team members
- Define scope, objectives, and deliverables
- Estimate work, choose resources, build project schedules, and track progress
- Accurately estimate project costs and work with a budget
- Identify and manage project changes and risks
- Balance project variables without sacrificing quality
- Document project history and lessons-learned to help improve future projects
