• Engage productively with project managers and teams to increase the probability of real business value being created from the project.
• Eliminate the unnecessary work that often slows projects down.
• Play an aggressive role in the initial planning process.
• Understand what a project team should be providing and when, what you need to provide the project team, and how to interpret schedule and cost information.
• Manage risk, and prevent changing require¬ments from derailing the completion of important milestones.

Illustrated by case studies, and filled with helpful checklists and exercises, the book clearly explains project management tools including business analysis techniques, work breakdown structures, program sequencing techniques, and risk-management methods. You’ll learn everything you need to know to articulate effectively real business needs to the project team, and use quantifiable action steps to ensure real results.
