    Story
    "Not what I was expecting"
    What would have made What You Need to Know About: Project Management better?

    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.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    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.

    Story
    "At least listen to people requests"
    What disappointed you about What You Need to Know About: Project Management?

    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"
    What would have made What You Need to Know About: Project Management better?

    Oversimplified, not operational. Not much in the way of leadership needed for project management but there are a lot of excuses, etc.
