Project Management Method eBook

Introduction

Managing projects can be a very rewarding profession. Project managers shape the world we live in and you get to meet a lot of people working as a project manager. However to be successful you have to be well prepared.

Most project managers  prepare themselves by getting certified or getting a master’s degree in project management. The next step is to use your knowledge to become a successful project manager.

Problem

Over the years I have noticed that many starting project managers are having problems “translating” their class room knowledge into real life project management.

Solution

To solve this problem I am writing an eBook which describes an easy to follow, stepwise project management method. This method is based on the project life cycle as discussed in PMI’s PMBOK® paragraph 2.4. I have noticed that the project life cycle is easy to follow and apply by starting project managers. I have been using and  teaching this method since 2005.

This eBook should be published shortly and will be available in my eStore.
