It Sounded Good When We Started : A Project Manager's Guide to Working with People on Projects, Dwayne Phillips, Roy O'BryanA common-sense guide to real-world project management
Common sense isnt always commonly practiced. Anyone whos ever worked on a project in a technical setting knows this. Indeed, much of working with others consists of solving unexpected problems and learning from mistakes along the way.
It Sounded Good When We Started: A Project Managers Guide to Working with People on Projects provides essential reading for project managers trying to understand the trials and triumphs that canarise in any project setting. The authors, both respected project managers with sixty years of experience between them, describe their own mistakes as well as the many valuable lessons they drew from them. Instead of trying to formulate these in abstracttheory, Phillips and O#8217;Bryan tell the stories surrounding a particular project, providing a more memorable, real-world, and practical set of examples.
Written in a distinctly nontechnical style, this is a general troubleshooting guide for people who work on projects together. As such, its content proves useful in many different settings and applies to many different kinds of endeavors. Most of the stories are about problems#8212;since its the problems we often remember more than the successes#8212;and what was learned from them. After describing a given problem, the authors analyze the issues that led to it and work towards various ways theyve discovered to create a better project environment, one where problems get solved easier and happen less frequently.
It Sounded Good When We Started offers a highly readable go-to for engineers, scientists, computer professionals, and anyone working on specialized, collaborative projects.
