This informative and concise book will guide you step-by-step through an effective intervention, allowing you to salvage more than you might think of a project's deliverables and goals.

Proven techniques, along with case studies and sidebars, help you understand exactly how to save your project - and possibly your career.

Industry Reviews

This book, which was written by two executives with nearly 50 years of IT management experience between them, is structured as a sequential approach to rescuing failing projects (i.e. identifying troubled projects, assessing the problems, planning the intervention, executing the intervention and so on). The book is aimed at anyone who works on IT projects, and it's very easy to follow and digest. It includes a slew of project checklists, methodologies and questions to ask at various stages of a project rescue attempt. Unlike IT management books that take a Sermon-on-the Mount approach, this one manages to offer practical advice without being preachy. Computerworld 20050131
