Project Management for Dummies
IN THIS SUMMARY
In Project Management for Dummies, Stanley Portny examines project-management skills and techniques, and aims to suggest that they are not burdensome tasks. Rather, they are a systematic way of thinking, communicating, and behaving in all aspects of daily work. Projects have been around since ancient times, but today the stakes are higher. Projects of all types and sizes are now the primary way that organizations structure and accomplish their work. Over time, a new breed of project manager has emerged. Project managers know that they must successfully structure, oversee, manage, and complete projects in order to move ahead in their careers. In essence, project management has become a critical skill, not a career choice.
