Book Review: The Project Manager’s Tool Kit by Tom Kendrick

The Project Manager’s Tool Kit, 100 Tips and Techniques for Getting the Job Done Right by Tom Kendrick is a useful collection of short summaries on project management  practices that make for easy reading. The recent Third Edition of this book is based on the processes in the Project Management Institute (PMI) PMBOK Guide, Fifth Edition (2013) but it focuses on the practical aspects of project management like Conflict Resolution, Influence Without Authority, Motivation, Project Metrics, Responsibility Analysis etc in an informal way. This is a good book for project managers and leaders - a handy guide for beginners and a reference for the experienced.

While bullet points are liberally used, I would have loved to see more of them to highlight actionable points. I feel information conveyed through bullet points make summaries sticky. All keywords are marked in bold face and that will help novices pick up on the project management terminology and improve their business communication.

I received a ebook copy of this book via the O'Reilly Blogger Review Program.
