What are effective ways to strengthen the soft skills needed for better project management?
This skimmable, scannable free ebook on what it takes to be a project manager got to the point quickly and didn't go deep into theory
We wish this free ebook had a bit more in the way of get-your-hands-dirty actionable elements to help the non-project managers adopt some of the traits of the best project managers.
Project management isn't just the latest buzzword trend. It's a real need for companies everywhere. This quick and dirty guide will give you a high-level overview of how the best project managers approach the projects they deal with.
After reading it, you'll have a solid understanding of when (and how) to use a few of the most popular project methodologies like waterfall and agile. You'll also get a look into what makes great project managers great (it's more than the organizational skills) and what the future holds for project management.
Shockingly, there wasn’t a table of contents, although there were some navigational elements that made it easy to interact with. We wish the section on what makes a great project manager had some tips straight from expert project managers and overall we would have liked to have seen some project management templates and worksheets for all the non-project managers among us.
Still, this free ebook is such an easy read, there's no reason not to at least give it a skim.
