Get Productive in a Multi-Task World: A Parent's Guide to Project Management

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Oct 18, 2011 - Self-Help - 76 pages

This is a book for those of you that need help managing those projects that most people have. Projects don't have to be large endeavors with many people contributing. A project is that special dinner party that you want to arrange with your friends, your son's camping trip that you have been "volunteered" to coordinate or your daughter's prom. It could be that kitchen renovation. In short, a project is simply an event that has a beginning and an end; it has tasks that need to be completed and may have some risks that require some pre-planning.

This book will give you the tools and techniques used by large corporations to manage their projects. The key difference is that you will find that these same tools and techniques are scaled so that they can apply to your projects at home. It is an effort to make your hectic life a little easier to manage.
