Assessing troubled projects


Well since my last book came out two years ago, I thought it was time to start writing my next (and third) book. It is a natural evolution of my books so far.

  1. Improving the skills of PMs – My first book, Essential Project Management Skills, focused on the key skills required for PMs to be successful in today’s business landscape. It makes the case for a consultative approach and then explains what those skills require.
  2. Improve the effectiveness of how to run programs – Building on having the right skills the next book, Applying Guiding Principles of Effective Program Delivery, focuses on eight guiding principles of how to run programs using a consultative approach.
  3. Assessing projects. The first two books focused on having the right skills and then managing programs properly, so the next logical evolution would be to focus on assessing projects and programs.

Magnifying-Glass

This third book will outline the approach for how to assess a project, what areas to look for, and key considerations to contemplate when performing the project review. This book is written from the perspective of a practitioner with specific focus areas and not just an audit that has a checklist of things to cross off. I am currently working with a few publishers and expect it to come out at some point in 2015.
