Lou's 6th book provides easy to understand project management skills everyone can use.
The 10 Steps series is designed for today's fast-paced, need-it-yesterday business environment and for the countless workers who find themselves faced with new assignments, responsibilities, and requirements and too little time to learn what they must know to be effective. This is truly a just-tell-me-what-to-do book. If you need to successfully manage a project and the discipline is new to you – or if you just want to improve your existing expertise- this book is the perfect book for you.
"Filled with pointers, tools, checklists, worksheets, and including a practical work process model, 10 Steps to Successful Project Management is a guide for anyone charged with managing a project. Lou shares her many years of experience with both wit and a dose of hard-nosed reality. Her wit includes a fanciful retelling of the three little pigs fairy tale from the perspective of a project manager. As for the reality check, she is just as straight forward about avoiding the many "lurking landmines" resident in any project as she is about the unfortunate results if you skip a step in her process. This is a book that deserves a special place on your bookshelf."
