Book Club, March 2018: "Alpha Project Managers: What the Top 2% Know That Everyone Else Does Not"

Alpha Project Managers: What the Top 2% Know That Everyone Else Does Not

Debunking misconceptions surrounding successful project managers, this source builds upon a landmark survey of more than 800 project managers from around the world to highlight the traits that make them stand out in the minds of their teams, senior managers, customers, and stakeholders. Through in-depth interviews and discussions, the common attributes of these elite project managers – from character and beliefs to organizational approaches – are uncovered and help to explain their achievements. Painstakingly researched, this guide offers key insights by providing multiple perspectives on the character makeup of the world’s most successful project managers.

Andy Crowe is the CEO and founder of Velociteach and author of the world famous book The PMP Exam: How to Pass On Your First Try.  He is one of a handful of project management authors whose titles have sold over 100,000 copies. He served as project manager for several high-profile international projects, including the creation of Europe’s largest e-commerce site and was a member of Microsoft’s DNS and .NET Advisory Committees.  Andy is a Project Management Professional (PMP), a Program Management Professional (PgMP), and a Six Sigma Black Belt.

The PMI Mid Missouri Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. The book club meetings are small group discussions for informal sharing and exchanging ideas. In order to participate you need to register for the event, preferably read the book before the meeting, and bring a copy of the book to the meeting.

Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers. The following book has been selected for this club meeting.
