10 Tips for Better Project Management

When it comes to project management, the management part is just as important as the project part. Of course the details matter, a lot, but too often managers find themselves lost in the weeds after chasing down day-to-day particulars and losing sight of big picture stuff like schedules and deliverables. Micromanagement is not good management, and it’s one of the things that limit a project's chances for success. In his book, 101 Project Management Problems And How to Solve Them (Amacom/Available Now), author Tom Kendrick provides clear illustrations of the challenges managers face, and then explains in simple, step-by-step fashion how these managers can effectively resolve them or avoid them entirely. Whether the situation is a wide-focus problem or a smaller one – like supervising that one employee who incessantly seeks guidance – 101 Project Management Problems offers best practices to address it. Kendrick is a consultant and former project management executive for HP and Visa Inc. For more about the book, click here.
