Project Management for Profit: A Failsafe Guide to Keeping Projects On Track and On Budget

By Dennis McCafferty  |  Posted 06-18-2012 Print
Whether its on the beach or in your own back yard, as the weather warms up, you're likely looking to kick back with a good, and it helps if its one that can actually make you better at your job -- in between volumes of "The Hunger Games," of course. These titles promise to help you manage any kind of IT project; know when you see signs of trouble that could cost you valued staffers; and transform underperforming teams into successful tech powerhouses. Two books drill down on how to be a more powerful storyteller, a skill that CIOs should cultivate to be more effective communicators. Today's CIO is much more than the resident IT manager who keeps the trains running on schedule. He or she is taking on a more broad, business-focused role, and using narrative skills to sell projects to colleagues is key. Happy reading!
