Simultaneous Management blends classic project management theory with the experiences of successful practitioners in our real world. This revolutionary but highly practical book provides today's project managers with the tools and the confidence to deal with the conflicting demands and uncertainties that so often arise to undermine the most well thought-out plan.
Written in plain English, Simultaneous Management is perfect managers who need to operate in the real world, as well as faculty and students in a classroom. You'll learn the 9 commonsense principles of project management (systematic and integrative planning, timely decisions adjusted to uncertainty, isolation and absorption, inward and outward leadership, teamwork, overlapping of phases, simple procedures, intensive communication, and systematic monitoring).
Many project management texts are great when it comes to theory, but few succeed in converting industry experience into academic philosophy and principles the way Simultaneous Management does. The author shares dozens of case studies that illustrate key guiding principles, and how to apply them under the harsh glare of everyday project experience. He also provides a range of easy-to-use tools (such as the Decision Matrix and the Critical Assumptions Matrix) and clear instructions on implementing them when turbulence strikes your next project.
