Had to listen a few times so I could take notes. Some useful information here
It is to follow
The check list to check the project status
Yes , he make it real
If we can have the check list and other item from the book attached with the audio book it will help the read follow
Yes! May return numerous times over time to pick out and apply nuggets of simplicity.
I wish I'd heard of this book before I started my project mgmt job.
Very applicable. Good history and logic too.
Yes, I listen while I drive.
It wasn't basic enough. It made a lot of suggestions and only one anecdote on occasion. It seemed as though a lot of the "lessons" were implied rather than instructed.
I'm sure if I dabbled, even a little, in project management prior to listening to this book I would understand more about it. Learn the basics of project management before listening to this book. Without a foundation, it's a bunch of useless jargon.
Simple, detailed, practical
Havent read many books of it's kind
Very good reader, easy to understand and very clean language
The final 'tricks' suggested by the author. The Project Manager (PM) should simulate that he is very busy at the moment and doesn't have too much time to solve the possible new very IMPORTANT request. From what I've understood the idea is just to make people go away and hope that perhaps they will give up of their possible new very IMPORTANT initial request. My objection is that perhaps those requests should be ranked higher in the PM Agenda than other projects already undergoing but the PM will not be able to know that since it is taught how to avoid those IMPORTANT requests. I think that with this 'advice' he is missing the main idea of Project Management: Get the IMPORTANT things done well.
Oversimplified, not operational. Not much in the way of leadership needed for project management but there are a lot of excuses, etc.
