Books Competent Project Management is a key skill in today's business world. From the multi-billion pound 2012 Olympic project to a small-scale software rollout in an office of 10 people, every project has its own distinct requirements that must be met to ensure the continuity of the business around it. It is to ensure this continuity that a project manager must deliver - on time, on budget and on target!

Register Books has put together a few key titles, nearly all at our usual 40 per cent off*, to help any project manager get the most from the resources at their disposal.

  • Managing a Project Team - Interactive Training CD
    At some point, every manager or highly regarded employee seems to be tasked with forming and managing a team to complete some business project. As a result, every manager can benefit from this exciting, interactive, business professional development course. With the aid of videos, hands-on lab simulations and tests this activity-based course teaches students the most effective way to manage a product team through all phases of the project's lifecycle.
  • The Art of Project Management
    In The Art of Project Management, author Scott Berkun, a veteran manager of software and web development who now consults and teaches, details how to plan, manage, and lead projects.

  • Catastrophe Disentanglement: Getting Software Projects Back on Track
    It's a software development nightmare: a project that's rapidly spiralling out of control...or already a disaster. Conventional project management techniques won't save these projects, there are no standard rescue processes to follow. You need something radically different - Catastrophe Disentanglement. Drawing on in-depth data from hundreds of development organisations, E M Bennatan presents a proven, 10-step program for rescuing any project that's worth saving.
  • Manage It!
    Your project can't fail. That's a lot of pressure on you, and yet you don't want to buy into any one specific process, methodology, or lifecycle. Your project is different. It doesn't fit into those neat descriptions. Manage It! will show you how to beg, borrow, and steal from the best methodologies to fit your particular project. It will help you find what works best for you and not for some mythological project that doesn't even exist. Before you know it, your project will be on track and headed to a successful conclusion.
  • Successful IT Projects
    Successful IT Projects introduces you to all the basics of project management. This is a great preparation for everyday experience in industry, as well as a thorough support for project management courses in IT or systems engineering. Working through the key phases of a technical project, you will cover project selection, planning, risk and quality management, as well as project monitoring and evaluation.
  • Managing Without Walls: Maximise Success With Virtual, Global, & Cross-Cultural Teams
    Worldwide, companies are rapidly adopting a new business model, the virtual office, where team members use technology to break down geographic boundaries and collaborate on projects from around the globe. New ways of doing business require fresh new approaches to management, and this is particularly true when managing IT resources that may be located almost anywhere...from Baltimore to Bangalore. With it, you'll learn special techniques for being successful at managing, coaching, and developing team members in this new and exciting, but challenging, environment.
  • Fundamentals of Technology Project Management
    Successful project management is increasingly vital to all organisations, driven by the demands of global competition, rapid technological growth, and faster time to market (just to name a few). For those in technology fields, project management skills are fast becoming a required core competency. People who have mastered these skills continue to be in high demand worldwide, commanding higher salaries than those around them. But how do you hone, extend these skills, or acquire them in the first place? Fundamentals of Technology Project Management is a great place to start.
