Description

In today’s workplace, employees are routinely expected to coordinate and manage projects. Yet, chances are, you aren’t formally trained in managing projects—you’re an unofficial project manager.

It’s time to change the way you think about project management—“project manager” isn’t your official title or necessarily your dream job, but with the right strategies, you can excel. Managing projects doesn’t have to be a frustrating process that you merely tolerate in your current position. If you’re ready to lead an eager team and exceed expectations, picking up this book is the first step to success.

From FranklinCovey management experts Kory Kogon, James Wood, and Suzette Blakemore comes Project Management for the Unofficial Project Manager, offering practical, real-world insights for effective project management. Kogon, Wood, and Blakemore understand the importance of leadership in project completion—they explain that people are as crucial as processes in the formula for success, and an effective project manager can’t afford to undervalue his or her team. This book guides you through the essentials of the project management process:

  • Initiating
  • Planning
  • Executing Monitoring/Controlling
  • Closing

Unofficial project managers in any arena will benefit from the accessible, engaging real-life anecdotes, memorable “Project Management Proverbs,” and quick reviews at the end of each chapter.
