The purpose of this book is to provide people with ready access to the skills needed to manage projects of varying sizes and complexity. It covers both the personal and procedural skills that are needed for the successful management of projects - for example it includes the personal skills of briefing staff, delegation, etc., as well as the mechanical aspects of determining which activities must follow on sequentially and which may be done in parallel. The book covers material which can be directly related to a number of GNVQ, A level and first year college/university courses, so that it can serve as a supplementary text book or set reading. It is also suitable for general business readers in a wide range of roles, particularly those with a technical background who find themselves managing others, and in need of skills such as presenting, interviewing, report writing, selling and negotiating. It is written in an easy to read style, with illustrations, check lists, real life examples and anecdotes. It covers a complete package of personal skills in addition to practical project management methods, providing the reader with new skills that can be quickly applied in working life.
