This book is a self-study tool for the project management certification exam.
Project management knowledge, skills, and practices are as vital today as they have been in the past and will continue to be important—yet many projects still fail. How can project managers help improve their chances of success? In Project Management with Ease and Purpose, author Evelyn D. Brooks, MSM, PMP, SSGB, pulls from her years of leading multimillion-dollar, high-profile projects to explain theories, techniques, and best practices of project management. She also provides plenty of real-world examples that illustrate how these principles can be applied to avoid PILEUPS and achieve success. This reference guide provides a host of time-tested tools, methods, and strategies used by highly skilled and competent project managers for both professional and personal tasks—all presented in a welcoming, conversational tone to present the best possible tips regarding project management, quality assurance, and controls. In the vein of works by Rita Mulcahy, Project Management with Ease and Purpose is an excellent addition to the library of anyone who may be considering a project management career, studying for the PMP® exam, or simply wants to sharpen their skills—in project management.
