Thousands of people find themselves managing projects every day, whether for school, their company, church, not-for-profit charities or even around their house. And most of these people have never received any formal training or education in project management. They, like you, might have some examples of success and failures, but have nothing to guide them for better results every time. Not until now that is.
Regardless of whether your project is to plan a PTA fund raiser, remodel your house, complete a community service project, install new software in your company`s office or any other event, applying the simple to follow instructions in this book will improve your chances of having both a successful and stress free project.
This book is based on years of practical experience combined with formal project management education, training and research.
