Projects involving billions of dollars require serious project management by highly qualified and experienced project managers.
Most of us won’t be doing any of that, but that doesn’t mean we can’t benefit from applying the principles of project management to our everyday work or personal projects.
I was introduced to project management at Adelaide Bank during a manager development program, and undertook formal training in project management with the Australian Taxation Office.
While I was working for those institutions, I didn’t get to manage any billion dollar projects, but I did manage or participate in a number of administrative projects, and I applied project management principles in the execution of my duties as both an auditor and as a portfolio manager of audit procedures.
These days I apply those same project management principles to my writing projects and, with this book, you’ll be able to apply them to your projects, too.
The first project management textbook I studied was a tome of several hundred pages, filled with a lot of terminology which took me a considerable time investment to comprehend.
This is not one of those books.
Despite all the mystique, project management is not all that complicated, even if some projects are. In my experience, most of the stress associated with projects comes from money, time and communication issues. Project management is all about reducing or eliminating those issues.
