PMI-SAC is excited to announce a project management focused book club aiming to help our members grow their network and as professionals.

Meetings will occur once every two months and the next book will be announced at the session.

The first book is: The Keys to Our Success: Lessons Learned from 25 of our Best Project Managers, Compiled by David Barrett and Derek Vigar. If you’re attending the Book Club review on Feb. 25, while you are encouraged to read the whole book, the session will focus on only one chapter: Never Go in Alone (pages 85-91).

Book Description:
Project managers are keen to learn from the best. So we asked the top experts in the field a straightforward question: “What is your best piece of advice for success in project management? The result is this book―a collection of their best stories, lessons, and takeaways. 25 different industry leaders make compelling cases for why their “key” will help influence your project success: The seven bullets of highly effective project managers Why leadership must be taken, not given The importance of becoming project “business-savvy” Ways to generate meaningful client ownership How great project managers make it fun And 20 other differentiators that have helped these industry leaders stand out If you are interested in differentiating yourself and boosting your career, then this book is a fantastic opportunity to connect with trusted mentors, read their honest advice, and leverage these keys to success in your own practice.
