To kick off the new year, I’d like to share a great resource designed for the technical project manager – ‘Practical Project Management for Engineers’ by RCI trainer Nehal Patel.
This book guides readers through a step-by-step process on how to deliver quality, robust products and services while strengthening teams and customer relationships. It introduces the core processes identified for management:
- Communication management: Over communicate, listen first.
- Scope management: What does the customer expect?
- Schedule management: Who does what by when?
- Requirements management: The product or service to deliver.
- Risk management: What could go wrong and what is the impact?
- Vendor management: Visit the vendor in person (rule number 1 for NASA project managers).
- Resource management: What do you need to do on Monday?
- Cost management: Get paid.
- Configuration management: Everyone working from the same sheet of music.
Here’s an excerpt of a review from Janet Grondin, Director of Emerging Space Capabilities, Stellar Solutions, Inc –
