Many project managers- especially in software-go their entire professional lives in ignorance of the factors behind the success or failure of their projects. Permanently in a state of agitation and worry, they just can't explain why some projects work out and others don't.
It doesn't have to be like this. There is a method underlying all successful projects, and if you follow this method your project is guaranteed to succeed. We have called this method Structured Project Management. The cornerstone of Structured Project Management is the 'Ten Steps'-the first five steps are to do with planning your project and the other five with implementing the plan and achieving the goal. How to Run Successful Projects III-The Silver Bullet builds on the success of the first and second editions and reminds us all, in the post dot com era, just how important good project management practices are.
