This second edition retains the essential features that made the first edition so popular and is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide). In addition to all of the steps, proven tips, tools and templates, the new edition features new sections on - Project Communication Plan - Cross Cultural Teams - Project Procurement Plan - Project Quality Plan - Organizational Change Management - Project Contingency - Projects vs Operations and expanded segments on working with teams, virtual team tips, scope (customer analysis and SMART Criteria), risk, scheduling (critical path), monitoring & control, (earned value), and many more additions. Finally, there is a new section on consensus based decision making tools to help project teams from The Memory Jogger 2 Second Edition. In addition, the overall flow and layout have been improved to make this new version even more user-friendly than the first. We hope that this improved guide will help you get the most out of your meeting time and also help to improve the success rate of projects in your organization!
