How to solve project management problems

See also

Even with a terrific project management program in place, problems can arise to derail your team’s hard work. The last thing you need in the heat of battle is academic theory. You need field-proven fixes, practical answers to urgent questions, and simple strategies for navigating around obstacles.

101 Project Management Problems and How to Solve Them, by Tom Kendrick, explores a wide range of these real-world challenges, including how to:

  • Keep a project on track despite unavoidable interruptions.
  • Prevent unreliable outside collaborators from jeopardizing the entire project.
  • Manage project teams who have little or no project management experience.
  • Make up for lost time without cutting corners.
  • Succeed in the face of threatened budget cuts

Filled with plan-ahead strategies as well as on-the-fly solutions, this helpful guide is both a project adviser and an on-the-job troubleshooter in one.

Kendrick is an internal project management consultant for Visa Inc., and a former project management executive for Hewlett-Packard.

He is also the author of:
