Downside | Summary


Surprisingly, given our previous book reviews, we found very little that we could criticize. If anything, criticism would have to do with the book's audience. The book is titled "Lessons in Project Management" and adds on the cover: "Teaches important project management lessons to help resolve real-world project situations you may come across." To be fair, however, the lessons described are those that would be encountered in a large, or perhaps even a not-so-large, information-systems/information-technology corporate environment. The authors are, after all, both from this project management domain.

Consequently, it is unlikely that those from other domains, such as engineering and construction, will be likely to empathize with the stories, even though in principle the lessons are just as relevant.
