Das kommt für mich nun in der Nachbereitung hinzu, die Inhalte, die für mich interessant und relevant sind, zu vertiefen, damit sie auch im Gedächtnis bleiben. Scott Berkun’s insights, knowledge and sense of humor delivers an exceptional book that no project manager can do without. the notion that schedules are highly uncertain at the beginning and become more certain over time is common sense, but when that is combined with approaches for developing specifications or making decisions or managing risk, it becomes a powerful foundation for running a project.

Once it was clear how popular the text was going to be, O’Reilly and Berkun took out some of the superfluous bits, added in over 120 exercises and generally spruced it up to launch it into the best-seller list. Big schedules must be divided into small plans to minimize risks and increase the frequency of adjustments. If on any day the project is not going well, it’s your job to figure out **what the problems are and to act** so that the project goes well again.Summary of “Making Things Happen” : Project management is a complicated art which requires you to master a number of things such as planning, understanding what needs to be done, writing a good overall vision statement, understanding where ideas come from, understanding what to do with ideas, writing good specifications, understanding how to make good decisions, communication and interpersonal relationships, what to do when things go badly, understanding why leadership is built on trust, making things happen, managing the strategy in the middle and at the end of the project, or understanding questions of power and politics; this book describes in detail each of these components and gives us numerous methods and tricks for mastering them. The simpler your vision of what needs to be done, the greater your power of concentration to accomplish it. In all these situations you need to know how to present your unique set of skills and abilities to others.

This book provides very general strategies and tactics to carry out successful software project management, including communication, politics. The author, Scott Berkun, penned down his practical knowledge and experiences as a project manager in this book, making it to the point. The more you are in touch with your positive reasons for wanting something, the greater will be your motivation to take action. Keep the vision alive by asking questions about the usefulness of the vision and about the daily decisions of the project.Part One focuses on the planning process, and discusses the usual planning and scheduling, but also adds some very valuable material on why you need a vision, what constitutes a good vision, Where good ideas come from, and how to use them.

Highly recommended for both novice and experienced project managers seeking effective, hands-on guidance. Since then, I’ve done a fair amount of self-discovery and, for the most part, have learned to change my thinking about the things I can’t control. The best managers do not need to have outstanding personalities – they simply have to know how to get things done.Divide the LEGOs into two piles, putting the same number and the same types of pieces into each pile. Take any chance you can to experience the dream so you can taste, feel, sense, hear, see what it is that you want.

Now, take the pile of things you can’t control and toss them in the garbage (or use them as fertilizer). Include a choice to do nothing and at least one hybrid choice (including a part with several options). Complete with a new forward from the author and a discussion guide for forming reading groups/teams, Making Things Happen offers in-depth exercises to help you apply lessons from the book to your job.If you are a dedicated manager, find ways to capitalize on your unique perspective of the team and the project. The result is an amazingly practical and proven set of tools, tactics, and techniques for navigating the thorny waters of project management, people management, and software development. I have received impressions about this book and I think it is a good roadmap to encourage future Project Managers. There isn’t enough time for everyone to participate, and what will happen is that a small group of dominant personalities will use up most of the available time… Most committees take this form and have the expected mediocre to crappy results. This book explains to technical and non-technical readers alike what it takes to get through a large software or web development project.
