5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A must read for any project manager, 8.27.2012
Reviewer: Steve Harris (Dallas, TX)

I've worked as a project manager for three different companies now, and always the team selection has been kind of handed to me. So I've spent a lot of time dealing with bickering, a mismatched skill mix, and other problems that I used to think were just part of the job. After taking this course, I had a heart to heart with our VP about staffing projects. He put me in charge of a project staffing committee and now we help allocate people over various projects based on the needs identified by each project manager. This has resulted in better performing projects and also ended the problem of the senior PMs always getting the star players even if those folks really need to be on other projects.

Reviewer: John Quint (Melbourne, FL)

It hit many issues we hadn't considered, but it doesn't go deep enough. We had previously used the PMBOK product on this same segment of project management and were completely dissappointed at how weak it was. This was better, but not quite enough.
