Not to be confused with the US edition, this UK edition only has minor parts from its US counterpart. The UK edition is focused on those who are new to project management or, who have been doing it for a while but know that they have a few gaps in their knowledge to fill in.
In line with the ‘For Dummies’ approach, the style is informal so the book is an easy read. It is nevertheless comprehensive and covers the full range of PM topics from planning to effective teams.
This UK edition also explains the very powerful ‘product based’ or ‘product led’ approach to planning. If you are new to this then you should find the book helpful as you get to grips with the technique which is not intuitive, but highly logical and enormously powerful. Nick used to say that he thought he had finally understood just how powerful product-led planning is, but he stopped saying it because those he had taught it to started to come up with new uses of it that he had never seen!
