today I would like to tell you about this book Project Management in 12 steps to which I gave a small contribution talking about opportunities to optimize a work planning in a car design project (page 143).
This book is well written and of easy understanding, it is a sort of manual for any type of manager and very appropiate to Design activities control, too.
It is full of real examples (like mine).
At the moment it is only in Italian language but soon it will be translated and published in English.
Where to buy it?
You can get it on-line or at bookstores in Italy, here a link with a “discount offer”: http://www.lametodologiadei12step.com/
