Today, I don’t have a full interview for you. I have something even better. I have a free ebook for you. It is titled “Managing Smaller and Medium-Sized Projects” and was written by none other than Dr. Jim Young.

So as I said, the free ebook you are going to get is “Managing Smaller and Medium-Sized Projects” by Dr. Jim Young. He asked me to mention that he acknowledges with sincere appreciation the contribution from numerous clients, students, colleagues, friends and project practitioners. Their sometimes unwitting input has been invaluable. He is particularly indebted to Dr. Russell Radford, a valued friend, fellow author and former military colleague for his expert scrutiny of the draft book and to his wife, Esmeralda, and the younger daughter, Emma, for tolerating all this writing silliness.

And now, let’s take a look at the book that we have for you.
Let me begin with some of the books highlights in no particular order. It is free and 240 pages long. So it’s not just a little ebook. This is a full-featured textbook. It is expertly researched and written in an approachable way and includes many images, graphics, tables and flowcharts that make things come alive.
In fact, the first two chapters of the book represent quite a solid introduction to project management. Chapter One is called “Introductory Stuff” and it introduces us to the notion of what a project actually is and how they are generally performed.
Chapter Two is called “The Principles, Processes, Terminology, Roles, Responsibilities, Leadership and Challenges.” Yeah, it’s a long title and it devotes 18 pages to these seven topics and it takes us through them one by one.
