Dear Colleagues:

Are managers in your organization using Gantt Charts and Critical Path Analysis skills to achieve professional levels of project management? I didn’t think so. The need for fundamental planning skills, however, remains a regular requirement of daily work for many people. We wanted to fill the need for an experiential method for teaching more managers solid project management. Project management for the rest of us.

I encourage you to try Rocket: The Project Management Game, developed by Lou Russell, best-selling author of Project Management for Dummies and Project Management for Trainers and a respected subject matter expert in the fields of project management and leadership. Rocket teaches the unique Dare to Properly Manage Resources (DARE) Model, a four-step framework for applying the best practices of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). The result is a fun, engaging way to learn critical yet flexible techniques for managing everyday projects. We can’t all be professional project managers, but we all do need to be better project managers. See page 40 for more information.
