Senior project manager and PM mentor Melanie McBride understands the predicament of beginning and junior project managers: "You're at the edge of a tornado, bombarded by overly excited people offering you a Mission Impossible. Everywhere you look there are cool shiny things swirling around your head-the earnest coworker telling you to go agile, the software package promising a turnkey collaboration solution, the PMO with an arm-long list of required processes. So how do you avoid getting whacked in the head by that airborne Mac truck of a customer commit? Oh, and what exactly do you need to do to get those flying monkeys to shut up?"
Project Management Basics slips the spinning project manager into the eye of the storm where things are quiet and it's easy to figure out what to do next using the author's detailed checklists and hard-headed advice. She shows that project management doesn't have to be "a chaotic hot mess, leaving you with an egg-beater hairdo." With McBride's book and checklists in hand, even first-time project managers can pull off controlled, flying-monkey-free projects.
