"When the going gets tough, they call for the sons of bitches! - Admiral Ernest King (attributed) Its a sad fact that most projects fail - as many as 70% according to one well known study. Those failed projects cost billions of dollars. Perhaps theyve even cost you or your company. Youve hired certified project managers and implemented project management techniques, and yet you still dont have the success you need. BARE KNUCKLED PROJECT MANAGEMENT has the answer. Of course, there are lots of management philosophies that tell you that if you just follow a few simple rules, youll have perfect results. But its never that simple, and we know it. The bare-knuckled approach to project management is all about the people. Anybody can swing a bat, but that doesnt mean anybody can be a major leaguer. Its all about the person. It takes talent, temperament, training, experience, and aptitude to achieve greatness. And make no mistake, for great projects, you need a great project manager - someone who isnt afraid to do what it takes to get the job done. You need a Bare-Knuckled Project Manager, someone not afraid to ruffle a few feathers, make hard decisions, and speak unpleasant truths to people who dont always want to hear bad news. In this insightful and powerful book, youll learn: *** The key reasons projects fail, and the simple steps needed to avoid the most common mistakes. *** How the "three sided table" approach empowers project managers, customers, and teams to do excellent work. *** How to become a Bare-Knuckled Project Manager, and how to groom others. *** How to handle conflict and communication like a pro. *** How the "Kranz Dictum" that saved NASAs Apollo Program can save your most troubled projects. *** How to transform the organization using the Bare Knuckle approach. For once, youll experience the "no bullshit" approach to project management: what matters, what doesnt, and how to tell the difference. BARE KNUCKLED PROJECT MANAGEMENT is the one guide you need to achieve real project results!
