Drawn from Harvard Business Review, Harvard Business Review Press books, and its website, the articles in this volume provide project managers with tools to manage projects more effectively. They explain the four phases of project management, and how to choose the right team, manage uncertainty, perform a project premortem, avoid "scope creep," set priorities, boost productivity with time-boxing, schedule the work, plan the launch, focus on critical tasks and mapping out a logical sequence, run effective meetings, manage big projects and their risks, revise the plan, manage people problems, avoid chasing after sunk costs, use Gantt and PERT (Performance Evaluation and Review Technique) charts, get disruptive team members on board, keep stakeholders apprised, evaluate the project's success, and capture and use lessons learned.
