The approach to project management is too often formulaic, describing what should be done, but not describing why those actions are important. This book outlines the what and how of project management, emphasizing why actions matter, the overall intention of the formulaic steps, and the strengths or weakness of various tools and techniques.
JERRY WELLMAN Project management consultant and Vice President of a business unit within Honeywell International.

Editorial Reviews

"For all those involved in project management, this is a book you simply must read. Improving Project Performance is a superbly written text that explains beautifully the intricacies of project management and illustrates ways to proactively shape project execution. This is project management on the front foot. Read it. Practice it. It works!" - Will Grocott, Head of OEM Vehicle Programs, Axeon, UK"A must read book for every project manager. Where other books focus on the what-to-do and how-to-do-it, this book takes focus on the key behaviors of the team. It s all about how to shape and manage those behaviors to create a successful project team that is focused on the outcome. In the end it s always about individual and team dynamics that are the key to a successful project. This book is a great tool for enabling project managers to achieve that success." - Paul Lavin, President, A*L Group"Jerry Wellman has the right credentials to author this book. He has the academic research coupled with 30 years of experience in Aerospace project management. His eight point plan for project management is enlightening. I recommend the approach for both the novice and the seasoned professional project manager." - Jay Lovelace, retired, Honeywell VP and GM
