Synopsis Project managers of the 21st century should be highly competent to take up any challenge. Highly volatile, complex and uncertain projects pose several challenges to them. Project managers should, therefore, need to be smart and knowledgeable enough to effectively lead such challenging projects towards success. Similarly, they must be masters in handling troubled projects. Managing multiple projects simultaneously is altogether a different challenge by itself. Project managers should act wisely and sort out all resource or coordination issues while working in a multi-project environment. It requires them to focus their efforts on and address any project challenge in the smartest way. Specific skills are required either to rescue a project in crisis or to handle a small project. HR and soft skills are other imperatives that any project manager should leverage on in today's people-centric project environments. Besides, they should keep themselves abreast with advancing project management practices, tools and techniques. This book provides insights into how project managers should effectively handle specific challenging projects or situations. It offers practical tips and suggestions for handling complex, small, multiple and troubled projects. Further, it advises on the skills required to effectively manage small, troubled and complex projects.
