Practical Project Management (SkillPath, 1996). The most popular resource for new project managers. Clear, quick, easy to read and filled with practical detail, this book has been chosen by numerous companies as the one project management book to be given to each and every employee.

The Juggler’s Guide to Managing Multiple Projects (Project Management Institute, 1999). The first formal project management book to address one of the toughest challenges any project manager can face: multiple projects. What kind of project portfolio do you have? Task-based portfolios involve very small projects, but lots of them—when you have a full-time job on top of them. Independent portfolios involve projects that share resources but have unconnected outcomes. Interdependent portfolios involve larger projects that may share resources, but defintely have connected outcomes.

Streetwise Project Management (Adams Media, 2003). This comprehensive yet highly readable 386-page resource is PMBOK® compliant, covering everything from PERT and CPM to project charters and team building. It’s the one-stop resource every professional project manager needs—and it’s accessible enough to be useful to the new project manager, too!

The Triple Constraints in Project Management (Project Management Essential LIbrary) (Management Concepts, 2004). The project manager’s universe is bounded in three dimensions: how long have I got, how much can I spend, and what do you want it to do? The triple constraints of time, cost, and performance are at the very heart of project management. If you don’t understand the Triple Constraints nature of your project, you’ll overlook resources and fall into traps for the unwary. Don’t let this happen to you. Detailed cases lay out exactly how to find the hidden resources in your own project. (Part of the Project Management Essential Library.)

Project Management for the Technical Professional (Project Management Institute, 2001). There’s really no such thing as a promotion. Instead, each level up the ladder amounts to a career change. From technical work to people management, from facts to politics, the transition can be tough. Let this book show you how to manage the transition and equip yourself for your new role.

The Six Dimensions of Project Management (Management Concepts, 2007).  Who would imagine that a project management book could also be funny? Sharp and insightful case studies illustrate core project management principles in memorable form. From Bugsy Siegel’s management of the Flamingo Hotel to G. Gordon Liddy’s management of the Watergate break-in, you’ll see real life project management up close like you’ve never seen it before.
