Now you have completed Project Management: Step by Step, and if you follow the steps in this book you can manage a project. There is a little more information in the Appendix and a glossary to reference.
You started in Chapter 1 by building up your vocabulary and understanding of simple project management concepts. Then in Chapter 2 you learnt how to clearly define the objective of a project in a Project Definition. By following the activities in Chapter 3 you learnt how to build a Project Plan, and by following Chapter 4 you saw how to manage a project. Chapter 5 showed you how to ensure your project finishes successfully. Supporting these chapters were the 'Key drivers for success', which highlight the best styles of working to achieve your project goals.
There is much more about being a really great project manager, who can deliver the largest and most complex of projects. However in most situations, what is in this book, if applied well, will greatly enhance your chances of success. Reference the material here as often as you need to.
The more you practise, the better your skills as a project manager will become. And in the end, project management is a practical rather than a theoretical subject. Review what happened after every project and learn from your successes and your mistakes. When you have the opportunity, observe others and learn from them too.
For now though you have completed this step-by-step guide, and you can call yourself a Project Manager. Good luck and enjoy it!
