The Complete Project Manager: Integrating People, Organizational, and Technical Skills
The Complete Project Manager: Integrating People, Organizational, and Technical Skills is the practical guide that addresses the “soft” project management skills that are so essential to successful project, program, and portfolio management. Through a storytelling approach, the authors explain the necessary skills—and how to use them—to create an environment that supports project success. They demonstrate both the “why” and the “how” of creatively applying soft project management skills in the areas of leadership, conflict resolution, negotiations, change management, and more. This guide has an accompanying workbook, The Complete Project Manager's Toolkit , sold separately.

“A project manager organizes the world from the inside out. A program manager organizes the same world from the outside in. In an era of agile development, you need to be doing both at the same time. Englund and Bucero show you how.”
