Publisher's Summary

If you want to achieve success in project management, then pay attention...

Some projects were always bound to fail. However, that is just a tiny minority. Most projects fail at least partly because of poor project management. If the project manager does not keep the team focused, doesn’t keep control of progress, and doesn’t keep checking that the project is meeting its objectives, projects easily drift. It is like letting a boat sail on without keeping a hand on the tiller - sooner or later, it will drift off course.

This audiobook aims to demystify project management and show you two different approaches that have a big following: Agile/Scrum, a very free form methodology that is good for services and software, and Lean Six Sigma, which is more data-driven and particularly useful for high-volume businesses from call centers to manufacturing.

In Project Management: An Essential Guide for Beginners Who Want to Understand Agile, Scrum, Lean Six Sigma, Kanban and Kaizen When Applied to Managing Projects, the following topics will be discussed:

  • Project Management: Before You Start
  • Agile and Scrum
  • Lean Six Sigma
  • Kanban and Kaizen
  • And many more!

So if you want to learn more about project management, get this audiobook now!

Great Book

Great concise book on Project Management however not a replacement for the Project Management Body of Knowledge text from PMI. Easy to read and breaks concepts down into manageable chunks of information. Would strongly recommend to anyone taking an introduction to project management course.

Well worth your time

The fact of the matter is that most everyone will be attached to a team or group at some point in their professional work. A lot can be said about team-building practices, but nothing can get a team more motivated than being on the same page in terms of the project.

Good intro

Good intro for those looking to learn regarding analytics. For those more in the know, straight abet light read. I would not use it as a basis for any analysis on my own but does offer enough to make sure you know the authorities a little better.

I greatly help you to give this an audiobook. The value is not in the inspirations but of the support on how to get back to core service policies.

Got a great AUDIBLE

I loved the tips presented. For example how to estimate the first time and how to map pre-Scrum roles. And I liked that there was a whole chapter on "done." I also liked the notion of corporate decrees being a tax on your time.
