Project Management for Small Projects shows you how to tailor bureaucratic planning processes to a sleek minimum while still keeping your project running like a well-oiled machine.

Managing projects requires time, effort, and discipline, regardless of the project size. The difference between managing larger and smaller projects is not only the amount of time, effort, and discipline but also the processes and tools. For years, this book has helped managers of small projects design scalable processes and simplified tools for immediate use in managing small projects. And since most small projects tend to be similar in structure or outcome, a template for one project can be used for future projects.

This third edition has been updated to align with the Project Management Institute's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and provides new tools, templates, and techniques to support the revised processes. In addition, there is new material on agile project management and on the essential leadership skills for small-project managers.
