The Back On Track manual delivers more than a step-by-step system guaranteed to successfully recover projects that have gone off-track. Using examples garnered from the author's sixteen-year experience, it presents common-sense but highly effective techniques that will help you, as a project manager, stand out from the "pack".

Written in a straight-forward, conversational style, the manual is filled with practical tips for the new or inexperienced project manager and is a fresh alternative to other management texts.

You will learn how to elegantly recover a project that has gone off-track by understanding:

  • Which critical actions need to be taken immediately;
  • The key to becoming a project leader - not just a manager;
  • How to foolproof your project plan;
  • Why you must never rely on "percent complete";
  • How to maintain control-even when things are falling down all around you;
  • And much, much more!
