Every great accomplishment you can name used project management techniques in one form or another to bring it to fruition: the Great Pyramids, the Brooklyn Bridge, the first moon landing, and many more great and small alike. A well-developed and documented project management process will help you increase your chances of project success. Kim’s books will help you understand the principles behind project management and guide you in developing a methodology that’s repeatable and works.
