Manage It! - Johanna Rothman

Your Guide to Modern, Pragmatic Project Management
This book is a reality-based guide for modern projects. 
You'll learn how to recognize your project's potholes and ruts, and determine the best way to fix problems - without causing more problems.

Your project can’t fail. 
That’s a lot of pressure on you, and yet you don’t want to buy into any one specific process, methodology, or lifecycle.
Your project is different. It doesn’t fit into those neat descriptions.
Manage It! will show you how to beg, borrow, and steal from the best methodologies to fit your particular project.
 It will help you find what works best for you and not for some mythological project that doesn’t even exist.
Before you know it, your project will be on track and headed to a successful conclusion. 
  •  Learn all about different project lifecycles
  •  See how to organize a project
  •  Compare sample project dashboards
  •  See how to staff a project
  •  Know when you’re done—and what that means.
You won’t need expensive tools or fancy software. 
Manage It! shows you how to use low-tech techniques to directly address the most pressing problems of modern software project development.
