"On the surface, these four steps appear to be basic ones to follow. What sets this book apart from others is the author’s experience in serving as a recovery manager for problem projects and the lessons he has learned in doing so.

It now has a scope of work, tentative timeline, potential resource list, initial risk register, and project assumptions; it is ready to roll. It has the traits of a new project, and everyone should treat it as such." Read more... (Requires free login)
