Project Management for Mere Mortals (book or video) walks you through the tools and techniques of five project process groups: initiation, planning, execution, monitoring & controlling, and closing. Each chapter is designed to teach you how to start these techniques immediately in your organization by examining each topic with four different focuses: project management tools and techniques, building an effective project team, dealing with organizational politics and finally a case study. The case study will weave all of the chapter topics together into a sample project that progresses throughout every chapter.
