I've been fortunate to a career leading software development teams for over twenty-five years on hundreds of projects. It takes a highly-focused, talented, and collaborative team to deliver successful products to market. That's where the importance of project management comes in.

I’ll be spending the remainder of 2019 (and into early 2020) writing the book, creating the artwork, and producing the videos. Your pledges will be used to cover the first big batch of book printing costs and the services of a technical editor. By investing in the project, you benefit by getting the book at a preferred, discounted price along with an early preview eBook.
TO BE CROWDFUNDED
IN EARLY 2019
Combining traditional classroom with online learning and peer interaction results in better learning outcomes. More engaging, more ownership, and more retention. Isn't this what education is all about? And finally a complete book on leadership and project management for the student.
This book can be a self-paced reference guide, the textbook used in a classroom as part of a course curriculum, or as the core workbook in a virtual, online web eLearning class. Contrary to most boring management books, our visual approach will make learning fun.
READ A SAMPLE
Instructors can use this book over the period of a semester (or accelerated in a quarter) in school. A special edition of Young Person's Guide to Project Management has additional information in order to successfully teach the course.
READ A SAMPLE FROM
Courseware books provide the core material for self-paced learning. Blended learning, like Young Person's Guide to Project Management, turns the book into a workbook with so much more.
The book (the workbook) is organized as a sequence of lessons stock full of learning content, case studies, team (class) exercises, and a test-your-knowledge review. For homework, there is an online video with a short quiz and documents you can download. Video lessons can be viewed on browsers on desktop, laptop, and tablets (closed captioning available).
FAKE NEWS ALERT!
We are most proud of getting the "bona fide" certificate from none-other than Jethro Bodine.
There are over 40 topics in the book with a chapter dedicated to each topic. Each topic takes two 45-minute to one hour classes (live classroom or webcast) to cover and follows a consistent structure:
For each topic, the first day of a one-hour class covers (1) learning objectives, (2) instruction material, and (3) case studies. For homework, the student watches (4) the video, takes a short quiz, and downloads the attachments.
In the next class, everyone participates with (5) team exercises and a (6) test your knowledge (T-Y-K) question and answer period. This helps reinforce that a topic's learning objectives have been met. The book includes a (7) “References” section that lists other books, videos, websites, and articles for further information.
