The practice of implementation project management needs to change from the old art form to a new science that is success driven and replicable. This book provides a bridge over the chasm of failure to the realm of success. It describes a practical and useful methodology that is flexible to use and a great reference guide for both veteran project managers and newcomers. It is specific to software implementations but the project management techniques can be applied to a variety of projects. Included are tools, techniques, lists, questions, and examples that can be used every day. The methodology presented has been honed from experience, academics, and common sense. It celebrates the people and process elements of project management and relegates technology to its rightful place as a tool.
