Absolute Beginner's Guide to Project Management, 2/e, is the easiest, fastest way to become an effective, efficient project manager. Long-time project leader and consultant Gregory Horine makes project management more accessible than it's ever been, offering a relentlessly clear and practical introduction to every skill new PMs need, no matter what industry or environment they're working with, or what tools they're using. This easy-to-use tutorial and reference walks through every step of project management from start to finish. Horine covers topics ranging from building project budgets and schedules through managing vendors, and shares indispensable insights about the human side of project leadership. Along the way, he reveals what works and what doesn't, covering everything from IT and outsourced projects to virtual teams. The first edition of this book earned raves for its simplicity, clarity, and real-world insight - and, above all, for its friendly, mentoring style. This new edition has been thoroughly updated, and includes an entirely new section designed to help new project managers get up to speed even faster. The new section includes chapters on using Microsoft Project more effectively, performing "What if" project analyses, managing special project situations, and leveraging today's hottest project management concepts and trends.
