I appreciate Katie Feltman, Acquisitions Editor, for her diligence in bringing this book to fruition and for her patience in gracefully answering all of my questions. Nicole Haims, Project Editor, provided a great deal of guidance and support to me and I am grateful to her for her efforts.

Joe Phillips: Books, like projects, are never done alone.
Thank you to Teresa Luckey for her hard work and incredible input on this project. A humongous thank you to Katie Feltman and all the folks at For Dummies for their patience and persistence. I would also like to thank the hundreds of folks who have attended my PMP Boot Camps. Your questions, conversations, and recommendations have helped me write a better book.
Finally, thank you to Elizabeth Lee, Rick Gordon, Scot Conrad, Phil Stuck, and my son Kyle.
Both authors would like to recognize and thank Cynthia Snyder and Karen Scott for being conscientious and thorough while reviewing this book.
