Review By Jeb Riordan

Although aimed at implementing enterprise systems like SAP R/3 and J D Edwards, the hints and tips are relevant to a whole range of projects.

Written with all the stakeholders in mind, it covers the fundamentals of project management.
What is a project? How is the project organised? What is a 'Steering Committee? What does the Sponsor do? And more...

The author gives practical advise on the four stages of successful team building and the four rules of team work.

The Project Plan is described, including Scope, Strategy and the importance of fixed milestones.

Ideas on practical easy to use management tools are also included. Templates for status reports, issues and meeting agendas.
The 'traffic light' system of indicating project status is also described.

And the final sections of the text are more focussed on the implementation phase of enterprise systems.

B. Nicolaus Wohldorf is the Managing Director of Wohldorf Systems Inc., a Manila, Philippines based information technology and management consultancy. He has extensive experience with integrated management systems at multi-national as well as large and medium-size corporations. He was born and raised in Hamburg Germany and holds an MSc in Integrated Management Systems (University of Birmingham, England) and an MBE, Master of Business and Engineering (Universitat Kaiserslautern, Germany)

The recommended retail price is astronomically high at PHP330 per copy (About USD6.50). However I understand 'Teampacks' (quantity discounts) are available.

"The key to successful enterprise system implementation is a sound project management".
This booklet is a good place to start and an ideal give-away at your next project kick off meeting.
