Book Overview

No project management training? No problem

In today's workplace, employees are routinely expected to coordinate and manage projects. Yet, chances are, you aren't formally trained in managing projects--you're an unofficial project manager.

FranklinCovey experts Kory Kogon, Suzette Blakemore, and James Wood understand the importance of leadership in project completion and explain that people are crucial in the formula for success.

Project Management for the Unofficial Project Manager offers practical, real-world insights for effective project management and guides you through the essentials of the people and project management process:


Unofficial project managers in any arena will benefit from the accessible, engaging real-life anecdotes, memorable Project Management Proverbs, and quick reviews at the end of each chapter.

If you're struggling to keep your projects organized, this book is for you. If you manage projects without the benefit of a team, this book is also for you. Change the way you think about project management--project manager may not be your official title or necessarily your dream job, but with the right strategies, you can excel.

   Perfect book for those of us who need PM skills but don't want to be become PMs
This book is fantastic! Keep its purpose in mind. This is NOT for people who want to be true project managers with a PMP engraved after their name. This is for the rest of us, who often have to wear the PM hat for smaller projects. This is the minimum 20% I need for 80% of my projects, and is just the right amount of content. Not too much, but not either skimpy or skimpy.
   Good stuff!
I like this a lot ''. The authors detail in a very concise fashion a sound approach for the unofficial project manager. I wish I had this 25 years ago!
   its FranklinCovey - what else is there to know?
I am an IT engineer, so I have been working on unofficial projects for many years. This book is great for getting to the heart of basic project management. It does not go into the full details of a PMP certification book, but is a great book for everyone. I would recommend this even to a person who wants to become a certified project manager as a primer to understand the technical world of projects, then they can go on to learn the real stuff and jargon for the test. It is a quick read with easy to understand scenarios - if you can do the small things faithfully, you can move to larger projects.
   Waste of time
I struggled through this book because it received so many good reviews, but it was not worth my time, the example scenarios used were unrealistic and overly ideal situations where everything came with a small bow on the package. That aside, the example conversations were so calculated that it was as though the project team was a group of automatons. Nothing in this book felt good and it did little to express the actual project management. One positive thing - it is saving me time and money because I have zero desire to become a certified PMP and this helps me feel authentic about this decision.
   Good information, but tedious format.
I got the points but the case studies in this were a little painful to read. The dialogue was a bit overproduced and phony, and I understand that the scenarios were exaggerated for a reason, but I kind of felt like a kindergartener was read to before nap time. If the fluff was cut out, this book could have been about 100 pages shorter if the Seemed fluff were seen.
   Life changing
This is by far the best book for anyone who wants a career that should read far beyond their own expectations.
   Excellent Read!
A very important and well thought out display of the most common practices for a project. Spoken in a way that anyone can understand. Well done!
   Great Book
I highly recommend this book as the foundation for any project manager. I highly recommend this book as a foundation for any project manager. It was a pleasure to read with clear examples and provides great templates for using this methodology right away. Beyond being a good project manager, the overarching goal of this book is to make you a highly respected, effective leader.
Written by Ryan Superbly and refreshingly practical. I was hit with four large projects that month and had no idea of how I would proceed without formal project management training. I have read through this book in two days and I now feel equipped to succeed with the right tools and the right knowledge. There used to be a marketing campaign in my local market for a men's clothing store, whose tagline was what a difference a day makes. In reference to our project management for the unofficial project manager, all I can say is what a book makes.

I felt that the book was well written, with several examples illustrating various stages of a project. I have just been assigned to a new project and am looking forward to applying the techniques described to define success, build teamwork, and clarify accountability. If you are a formal project manager, this may not be the read for you, but can still be valuable if you are focused on team building, respect and open communication.
