Scale Your Project Management Efforts to Maximize Success!

One size does not fit all in project management. Selecting an approach that is appropriate for the size and complexity of a project is essential to achieving success. Over-managing a small project can bog it down in bureaucracy, while a laid-back approach can lead to disaster on a complex project.

Pragmatic Project Management: Five Scalable Steps to Success will help you select the methodologies and tools that will enable you to expend minimum effort to achieve maximum gain on your project. This clearly written guide lays the groundwork with a chapter on project sizing and management scaling and follows with chapters on each of the five essential elements of pragmatic project management:

  • The project charter
  • The project team
  • The project plan
  • Project issue management
  • Project status tracking and reporting

Practical tips and a checklist are included at the end of each chapter. Use the checklists as you plan and execute your project to keep it on track and to scale.


Sizing the Project and Adjusting Project Management to Scale • Pragmatic PM Element #1: The Project Charter • Pragmatic PM Element #2: The Project Team • Pragmatic PM Element #3: The Project Plan • Pragmatic PM Element #4: Project Issue Management • Pragmatic PM Element #5: Project Status Tracking and Reporting
