In this book, the author has assembled one-hundred "processes" based on established, practical ideas used by successful project managers in many fields, including those identified in the Project Management Institute's PMBOK® Guide.[13] The book is organized for quick, random access to the processes and provides a consistent and easy-to-use compact format for each.

Examples of processes include such useful general items as: Brainstorming; Decision Making; Negotiating Project Changes; Project Objective (Mission); Rewards and Recognition; and User Needs Assessment.

Notwithstanding the "Downside" items we've listed, this is a valuable and handy little reference book of project management processes. It has a few executive management processes like Project [Portfolio] Office thrown in for good measure, or perhaps to make the number up to one hundred! Tom Kendrick has done a good job of identifying and describing most of the main project management processes used by today's project managers in the majority of today's projects.
