Common Sense Project Management
"This book is aimed at helping the project manager (and the project manager wannabe) with suggestions, ideas, guidelines, and warnings. It is not strictly a "how to" book; rather, what's here is the common sense that's become far too uncommon an attribute in the modern business world." "Basic management is addressed thoroughly because you can't be a good project manager if you aren't a good manager. The information given can help current or future project managers in any management position, even those who never even end up managing a project."--BOOK JACKET.
