Project management can be a rewarding, exhilarating experience. Yet, far too many people head into it feeling a mild streak of terror, if not outright dread. And why not? The levels of sophistication one can bring to the task of project management varies so wildly that it is easy to be left confused, overwhelmed, and without direction. This book is for the typical career professional who is asked to manage a project of anywhere from just himself or herself to a staff of say 10 or so. The project is probably going to be 6 months or less and cost far less than a million dollars. Still, there are lots of things that you need to know, and you need to know them in a hurry. That is what the 10 Minute Guide to Managing Projects is all about.
