by Frank Ryle (Normally $9.95)
Book Description of Keeping Score
Step inside the pages of Keeping Score: Project Management for the Pros, where the worlds of golf and project management come together in a compelling and provocative way.
From a board room in New Jersey to a golf course in Cork, Ireland, you will follow a trio of characters as they attempt to integrate three different PM perspectives into one inclusive, convergent approach. Over rounds of golf and hours at the white board, they discover parallels between the step-by-step structure of project management and the hole-by-hole nature of golf. Whether you are an executive, a professional project manager or someone who occasionally manages projects, Keeping Score offers valuable lessons and clever insights that you can implement in almost any work environment.
Keeping Score is proof that learning—and doing—project management doesn’t have to be complicated.
Unlike other project management guides, Keeping Score is story-based and provides a simplified 9 step approach to managing a project from start to finish.
