Description

Details

Project management can help companies become more efficient and profitable. But classic project management models often prove too cumbersome for smaller businesses with limited staff resources, tight budgets, and next to no time to devote to learning complex methodologies. These smaller enterprises need the core principles and techniques of project management in a streamlined package.

Project Management for Small Business offers simple, repeatable practices for planning, executing, and controlling projects in smaller environments in which one team member may wear multiple hats. Whether you’re a manager, business owner, or just someone faced with completing a project, this easy-to-understand guide provides you with the simple project management techniques you need to:

  • Define project requirements and scope
  • Create a project schedule based on resource availability
  • Estimate, budget, and control project costs
  • Identify and minimize project risks
  • Manage workflow
  • Communicate effectively
  • Control project change
  • And much more!

Do you want to know five immediate ways to improve your projects? Are you curious what the six hidden costs are associated with most projects? What actions should you always take when closing out a project to ensure—beyond a doubt—that it’s brought successfully to completion? This easy-to-understand book, grounded in real-world experience and simplifying the proven thinking behind project management philosophy, gives you bulleted lists, quickly instituted techniques, and down-to-earth systems you can use no matter what industry you’re in or how many different hats you’re wearing. This practical guide skips the complicated theory and goes straight to the heart of what it really takes to make a project a success.
