It covers all nine knowledge areas of project management: integration management, scope management, time management, cost management, quality management, human resource management, communication management, risk management, and procurement management. All this information could be very overwhelming for a beginner. However, this book makes the process interesting by explaining all concepts from scratch and presenting the "big picture" in a cohesive way. Whether your project duration is a few weeks, a few months, or a few years, and whether your project is in construction, biotechnology, or any other field, this guide will help you ensure that you manage the project effectively, efficiently, and successfully, and it will lay down the foundations for your success as a project manager in just three months!

Dead People voted. Absentee ballots changed. Petitions were round-tabled. Who was involved in the "Hired Truck" scandal? How much did Daley know? But most importantly, did someone in City Hall help the Feds get Laski? After becoming City Clerk, the second-highest ranking elected position in Chicago, he helped a friend make hundreds of thousands of dollars. That same friend, as he learned on September 18, 2005, had worn a wire and carried a hidden camera for the FBI. This betrayal led to Laski's ultimately being sentenced to a West Virginia federal prison on September 11, 2006, and to a confrontational and controversial drug program. All in all, over forty people were indicted in the "Hired Truck Program" scandal, many of whom, including Laski, were sent to federal prison. This is the story of one unfortunate man's fall from grace.

Project Management is a broad subject and there have been many excellent books written on the subject. Some are encyclopedic in content. This book is not. Project Managers have little free time and they don’t generally spend it reading books on Project Management. Project Management – The Secrets of Success is a book of important topics and guidelines for the Project Manager - a book that can be read while traveling or referred to as an issue arises. Project Management is THE critical skill in the engineering and construction world. Most Presidents and senior managers of engineering and construction companies are former project managers. Even in the Owner organizations, excellent project managers position themselves for senior management roles. Why? Because managing a project is fundamentally business management – starting, staffing, running and shutting down a business - excellent preparation for company management. Project Management can be boiled down to 10 Project Management Commandments. Following these ten commandments alone will not make a Project Manager successful; but, poor performance in any of these areas usually results in failure. 1. Safety – first, last and always 2. Contract – know it – follow it 3. Quality – good jobs have high quality 4. Schedule – no excuses 5. Basic Project Data – verify, then use 6. Be Completion Driven 7. Quantities – manage them 8. Money – guard it – ours or the Client’s 9. Lead – clearly show the way 10. Client Relationship – you have the responsibility Project Management – The Secrets of Success expands each of these topics in detail. The book is not a primer on Project Management; it builds on the knowledge of experienced Project Managers and provides them guidelines and coaching to improve project performance. Project Management – The Secrets of Success also discusses the skills necessary to become an excellent Project manager. They include: · Leadership - giving proper direction and following progress on a detailed level. · Insight – being able to understand the status and direction of a project from limited data – relying on experience and intuition to root out problems. · Consensus building - seeking alignment from your team and with your Client. Getting all needed input before making decisions. · Communication skills including oral reporting, written communications and presentation skills. · Building excellent Client relationships. · Project risk - how to recognize it and how to mitigate it. · How to keep a project on schedule. · Project costs - understanding them in detail and monitoring and correcting poor cost performance. · Knowledge of contracts - what the key issues are and how to roll down the prime contract terms to subcontractors and vendors. · Understanding construction and being able to drive engineering, design and procurement to support the field. · Knowing and championing Safety - in design and in execution. · Being an outspoken advocate for Quality. Every experienced Project Manager will benefit from the lessons of Project Management - The Secrets of Success.

You never dreamed being the boss would be so hard. You're caught in a web of conflicting expectations from subordinates, your supervisor, peers, and customers. You're not alone. As Linda Hill and Kent Lineback reveal in Being the Boss, becoming an effective manager is a painful, difficult journey. It's trial and error, endless effort, and slowly acquired personal insight. Many managers never complete the journey. At best, they just learn to get by. At worst, they become terrible bosses. This new book explains how to avoid that fate, by mastering three imperatives: · Manage yourself: Learn that management isn't about getting things done yourself. It's about accomplishing things through others. · Manage a network: Understand how power and influence work in your organization and build a network of mutually beneficial relationships to navigate your company's complex political environment. · Manage a team: Forge a high-performing "we" out of all the "I"s who report to you. Packed with compelling stories and practical guidance, Being the Boss is an indispensable guide for not only first-time managers but all managers seeking to master the most daunting challenges of leadership.

One of the most pivotal events in the electoral cycle is the transition of a newly elected political party from opposition to government. The incoming prime minister or premier must assemble a team of ministers, advisors, and staff that is competent and ready to govern, without disrupting the day-to-day functioning of their country or province. Off and Running sets the stage for successful transitions by describing the best practices from Canadian federal government transitions from 1984 to the present day. It draws on a number of sources: the author’s own career in public affairs, including his significant role in the transitions of both Chrétien governments in 1993 and 1997; extensive interviews with more than forty key individuals in the last eleven federal government transitions; and the international literature on government transitions, public administration, and management. Zussman goes step-by-step through the transition process from the pre-election stage to transition planning all the way to implementation and consolidation of the new government. This book is ideally suited to those seeking an understanding of how government works during one of the most crucial points in its life cycle.
