With organizations like the Project Management Institute expanding their membership by 20 percent annually, it’s clear that project management is growing fast. But if you are just starting out, questions abound: What does the job consist of? What experience and training do you need? What type of certification is required, and how do you get it? And once you’re off and running, how do you build, manage, and sustain a rewarding and lucrative career?

Your Successful Project Management Career provides you with all the information and advice you need to get started. Beginning with an overview of how project management got started, how the field has grown, and where it’s headed, you’ll find a clarification of project management terminology, and a list of courses, educational programs, and reading requirements you need to be acquainted with. The book gives you helpful tips on how to make the transition from your present career into project management, as well as an explanation of typical corporate hierarchy. The book gives you indispensable advice on:

Acquiring preparatory skills in scheduling, budgeting, team-building, delegation, and building a personal skill set
Assessing the market and selecting the “right” organization
Making friends and alliances in the field
Taking over projects in progress, developing project plans, and executing and closing projects
Gaining experience, and expanding your knowledge and training
