After more than a decade of working with various revisions and editions of this book, I
am amazed at the uniform spirit of goodwill and cooperation given me by many
people. Without that spirit, this book would not have seen the light of day or continued
helping people. My first editor, Ralph “Jake” Warner, showed infinite patience in
working with a first-time author. My second editor, Lisa Goldoftas, challenged every

quality on a project level. The project-driven companies must find ways to learn
“best practices” in a competitive world and apply these lessons to their processes,
