When you’re responsible for a project, large or small, things will go wrong. Even if you’re a skilled project veteran with a solid plan, things will happen that you least expect. And if you’re less experienced, there are a startling number of ways that your project can get into trouble. Despite your best efforts and intentions, there are plenty of problems and challenges that can—and often will—arise at any step and from any angle to derail your team’s hard work.

What you need—right away—are field-proven fixes, practical answers to urgent questions, and simple strategies for navigating around the unforeseen obstacles you’ll encounter throughout your project.

You can put that dry, unhelpful tome of academic theory back on the shelf. 101 Project Management Problems and How to Solve Them shows you how to:

• Keep your project on track despite unavoidable interruptions

• Prevent unreliable outside collaborators from jeopardizing the entire project

• Manage project teams who have little or no project management experience

• Make up for lost time without cutting corners

• Succeed in the face of threatened budget cuts

You’ll find out how to ensure good project management practices during organizational process changes . . . successfully deal with contributor hostility or reluctance during start-up . . . handle undependable contributors . . . bring new people up to speed on already-started projects . . . respond to increased demands from management after the project baseline has been set . . . work with limited resources . . . minimize potential late project testing failures and deliverable evaluation issues . . . manage a project through reorganizations, market shifts, and other external changes . . . and much more.

Arming you with immediately usable fixes to a wide range of real-world project challenges, this one-of-a-kind, on-the-job troubleshooter will help you deal effectively with whatever unexpected problems come your way—and get your project on track for success.

TOM KENDRICK is a project management consultant and former project management executive for Hewlett-Packard and for Visa Inc. He is the author of Identifying and Managing Project Risk, Results Without Authority, and The Project Management Tool Kit.
