If you're a project manager, you need this guide to fill in the gaps in the PM canon. The Project Management Institute's Body of Knowledge, fails to fully explain certain PM tools and how they work, among other failures. Real-World Project Management fills in those major gaps with irreverence, wit, and wisdom. For any kind of project you’re managing, this book presents the high-quality tools and tactics you need to succeed.
