It's a jungle out there for project managers, and no amount of Lean, Agile, or Six Sigma finessing is going to tame a massive project that's threatening to unravel. No matter what process you've got in place, there's one key ingredient that can make or break your success: managing the people.
Introducing TACTILE Management? a people-based project management system that works in conjunction with your organization's existing processes. Based on the seven characteristics of successful projects-transparency, accountability, communication, trust, integrity, leadership, and execution-Succeeding in the Project Management Jungle's system shows you how to:
* Take a project team out of its functional silos and transform it into a powerful, integrated force.
* Balance the expectations of customers, management, and project teams with the traditional technical requirements of schedule, cost, and scope.
* Use people management skills to successfully navigate each process group, including initiation, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing.
* Troubleshoot the pitfalls that frequently jeopardize knowledge-worker projects, and eliminate or minimize their impact.
Complete with practical, real-world advice from practitioners in the field and a running case study that astutely contrasts a standard project with a TACTILE-managed one, Succeeding in the Project Management Jungle is immensely practical, remarkably easy to master, and packed with invaluable insights for overworked, overstressed project leaders everywhere.
