Free e-book: How to be a great project manager?
I came across an e-book on project management at ProjectManager.com. The book is titled “How to be a great Project Manager?” The book title was attractive enough for me and I straightaway started reading it. Since the book is available FREE for everyone, I thought of sharing the information here.

Review of the book

The book starts off like this: “Whether you’re a novice or an expert, you can always improve the way you manage projects.” This is what we call it as continual improvement; the core concept of ISO 9000 Quality Management System.

It’s a simple book on project management, not really rocket science. It’s not as voluminous as you would normally expect books on project management to be.

I would consider it more as a handy reference tool, touching on basic concepts of project management. After all, in our pursuit to excellence, we often lose track of the project management basics. Right?

I like the simplicity of the book. The limited concepts covered in the book are very well organized and presented in a way that’s pleasing to the eyes.

Contents of the book

The book provides several tips, tricks and techniques to put you on the right track to become a better project manager. In this book, you will learn how to:

  • Set goals and achieve them
  • Improve your decision-making skills
  • Write great project documents
  • Deliver fantastic presentations
  • Manage day-to-day tasks
  • Boost your personal confidence
  • Improve your learning
  • Get a work-life balance

Conclusion

If you are preparing for the PMP credential examination, then this book may not be of any help to you in the exam preparation. But, it would be a good guide for you as a project manager. If you managed to get a copy of the book, please share your opinions on the book.
