July Book Club Q&A Closing Webinar – The Project Manager's Little Book of Cheats by Beth Spriggs
Closing Q&A webinar for July Book Club on The Project Manager's Little Book of Cheats
About the Book:
There is no such thing as cheating in project management, but if there were it would be this book. It includes quick steps, relevant tips, fun stories, and applicable advice to solving common problems and questions focused around the work of a project manager.
The book is in question / answer format with 11 chapters covering 65 questions.
Some of the questions include:
#12 I need to convince someone of my idea. How do I sell an idea?
#16 Since most of my work communication is through email, how can I make my email communication more effective?
#22 How can I convince those who are change resistant?
#39 Assumptions introduce a lot of risk. What are some common assumptions to watch out for?
#41 How can I tell if a project is getting off track before it's too late?
#47 What process could I use to evaluate project requests to determine if they should be approved or not?
#51 How can I make my team meetings more productive?
#58 My project tracking needs have grown beyond Microsoft Excel. What are some good project management tools?
When you have a question or problem do you have time to stop what you're doing and read a three hundred page book on a single topic? Wouldn't it be great if you could open a book and find a one to two page answer that you can apply immediately, in the moment when you need it? Now you've found one.
This book has hopes and dreams. It hopes that it will sit on or in your desk and be opened frequently when questions or problems arise. It wants you to write on its pages, make your own notes, and highlight what works for you. And it dreams that you will share its contents with your colleagues.
NOTE: You must watch videos in their entirety and all the way through to the end for our system to record your viewing activity accurately. Learn more about PDUs on ProjectManagement.com.
