Project Management in Small Business - How to Deliver Successful, Profitable Projects on Time with Your Small Business Clients
by Dana J Goulston, PMP and Karl W. Palachuk
Small Business project management is
simply not as complicated as project management in the enterprise. But small
business projects have the same challenges as enterprise projects: They need to
achieve their goals effectively, on time, and within budget. They also face the
same primary challenge – staying inside the scope of the project!
This great little book provides a simple
process project planning and management process that is easy to learn and easy
to teach to your employees, fellow technicians, and sub-contractors.
You’ll learn to track any project,
explain all the stages to clients and employees, and verify that everything is
completed on time and under budget. The authors show you a great technique for
making sure that scope creep is a thing of the past!
