LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA, Jul 03, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Today, Method123 announced the release of a brand-new project management book titled the “Project Management Guide Book”. This new book is aimed at helping project managers and teams to deliver projects on time and under budget. The book, written by Jason Westland the CEO and founder of Method123.com aims to help managers improve the way they run projects by following a simple step-by-step process.
“It’s well known that a high percentage of projects these days fail” says Westland. “There are two key reasons for this: the people and the processes they follow. Often people are landed managing projects without having the necessary skills or experience in order to do the job asked of them. They are required to produce a complete suite of deliverables within an incredibly short period of time, with limited resources and it often goes pear-shaped! The second reason is that they don’t follow an industry standard process for managing projects, so they simply avoid the planning phase and get straight into execution. These two common problems lead to a high percentage of projects failing around the world.”
This new project management book aims to solve these problems by giving project managers a simple step-by-step process to follow when managing a project from start to finish. If they follow the process, then even an entry-level project manager can deliver a project with greater confidence than before. By following every step if the project management life cycle in detail, a manager is able to gain the confidence needed to complete that step quickly and efficiently. This project management book also provides all of the tables, charts and graphs that are needed in order to initiate, plan and execute projects quickly.
While the book is intended to be priced shortly at $19.95 in the Amazon store, it is currently being given away for free for a limited time. It complements the Project Management Templates kit which is offered at Method123.com, by providing a template for every step in the project life-cycle.
Method123 was founded in 2004 for the purpose of providing project management templates to people around the world. Within the first six months of operation, they had given away more than half a million products to managers and teams in 200 countries. Now, with over 1 million customers worldwide, the Company is growing from strength to strength during the recession.
“One thing that every project manager knows they need, is templates” says Westland. “That’s why we’re going strong, because every project manager on the planet knows that high quality templates save you time and money on projects.”
Method123 recently released other free advice, articles and project management tools on their Google Plus and Facebook Project Management Template page. They intend to release more free project management books to help teams in the near future.
