The Little Black Book of Project Management (Paperback)

Posted by Kevin Brady on Tue 17th February 2009 at 05:56 PM, Filed in e bookshare

If there is only one book you want to read and you don’t want to spend more than a few hours to get up to speed on project management, this is that book.

The reason why this book is so valuable - most people when first introduced to project management are not interested in reading a lot of material on the subject and want to get a Cliff’s notes version of the subject. That’s when you can get the most benefit from this book. It is better to read this book than not read anything at all on the subject. And it is a very easy book to read.

After years of project /programme management experience, I now realize what a gem this book is even for an experienced project manager. It can act as a refresher if you read it once a year. Sometimes, we all tend to forget the simplest and most obvious things and this book helps us remember the basic project management principles.

Don’t be fooled by this 170 page lightweight, it packs quite a powerful punch! A lot of professionals who are not project managers have thanked me for recommending this book. It helped them understand what I do as a project manager without having to spend too much time. It may be an excellent idea to distribute copies of this very inexpensive book to members of your team so that it can enhance team communications.

If project management is your career, you should definitely move on to other books after finishing this book. You can keep the copy as an annual refresher though.
