Process Doesn't Have to Be Heavy and Slow to Be Good
Do you have a project that needs to be handled better, starting yesterday? How about an organization that desperately needs to do a better job running all its projects, starting now? Don't despair! You can make some fast, dramatic improvements to project processes without a huge, yearlong change initiative.

This how-to course by Cinda Voegtli explains practical ways to get new and helpful project management techniques in use on new or existing projects. Don't worry about putting together a Big Process Binder right now. Instead, Cinda focuses on techniques that don't involve a lot of (probably dreaded) management mechanics; techniques that are simple to explain and implement, and that provide powerful leverage for avoiding common project problems. She illustrates these principles by describing how three supposedly hopeless projects used these tools and techniques to recover and succeed, and explains how to adopt those new approaches on any project (not just one in trouble).
