Managers are faced with complex tasks all the time. Completing these tasks may require setting up and running a project or on other occasions it may need a short, structured action plan.
A huge amount of approaches exist, in thousands of books, to help managers complete tasks. Occasionally, a manager has the time to go off and read a text on a topic like how to manage a project, but often they have an immediate requirement to do something now. There isn’t time to plough through a project management book. Usually, all that is needed is a simple list of steps, a checklist that the manager can read to kick start them into action.
The core contents of this book will follow a standard project management process – starting in initial concept identification, and going through to complete implementation. At each stage there are tasks and problems that face project managers, and for each identified task or problem there will be a checklist.
Unlike normal project management texts, which are written to be read end-to-end, this book is designed to act as an everyday reference source that will be picked up and used every time the question “how do I …..” comes into the readers mind. The book will sit on a manager’s desk at work and be referenced regularly. It will become as much an important supporting tool as a book to read.
