“When the going gets tough, they call for the sons of bitches! — Admiral Ernest King (attributed)

It’s a sad fact that most projects fail — as many as 70% according to one well known study. Those failed projects cost billions of dollars. Perhaps they’ve even cost you or your company. You’ve hired certified project managers and implemented project management techniques, and yet you still don’t have the success you need.

BARE KNUCKLED PROJECT MANAGEMENT has the answer. Of course, there are lots of management philosophies that tell you that if you just follow a few simple rules, you’ll have perfect results. But it’s never that simple, and we know it.

The bare-knuckled approach to project management is all about the people. Anybody can swing a bat, but that doesn’t mean anybody can be a major leaguer. It’s all about the person. It takes talent, temperament, training, experience, and aptitude to achieve greatness. And make no mistake, for great projects, you need a great project manager — someone who isn’t afraid to do what it takes to get the job done.

You need a Bare-Knuckled Project Manager, someone not afraid to ruffle a few feathers, make hard decisions, and speak unpleasant truths to people who don’t always want to hear bad news.

In this insightful and powerful book, you’ll learn:

*** The key reasons projects fail, and the simple steps needed to avoid the most common mistakes.

*** How the “three sided table” approach empowers project managers, customers, and teams to do excellent work.

*** How to become a Bare-Knuckled Project Manager, and how to groom others.

*** How to handle conflict and communication like a pro.

*** How the “Kranz Dictum” that saved NASA’s Apollo Program can save your most troubled projects.

*** How to transform the organization using the Bare Knuckle approach.

For once, you’ll experience the “no bullshit” approach to project management: what matters, what doesn’t, and how to tell the difference. Bare Knuckled Project Management is the one guide you need to achieve real project results!

    If you're a leader this book is for you. There seems to be such a big misconception between professionals with Degrees and Certifications and those with experience and integrity. I believe what makes a person special is not only their natural skills but most importantly how they relate to others. Thank you guys for writing such a straight-to-the-point, no bull book, well done!!!
