The Ultimate Guide to Project Management: Learn everything you need to successfully manage projects and get them done (Zapier App Guides Book 6)

It started as an idea, that next amazing thing your team is going to do. Perhaps you'll build the next big thing, add a feature your users have been waiting for, or write that book you've been thinking about for years. Perhaps you'll put a man on Mars, or land a rocket on a boat, or reinvent the car.

Perhaps. But first, you'll need a plan.

Plans map your path, list what it takes to get there, and what needs done first. They're the essential ingredient to making sure your rocket has enough fuel, that you have a team ready to launch it, and that you actually build the rocket in the first place. They're what make project management *work*.

There's no set way to make a plan, nothing you must do to get from zero to hero. But there are a handful of popular project management strategies, dozens of project management apps, and an entire ecosystem of tools to gather feedback and set deadlines and track time and *manage* those projects. You're ready to launch that rocket, but first, it's back to the basics.

It's time for Project Management 101.

In this book, you'll learn everything you need to know about project management. You'll find detailed overviews of the most popular project management strategies, advice from teams around the world on how they manage projects, and roundups of the best tools to help your projects flow smoothly. It's everything you need to plan that rocket launch--and make sure it lands in the right place.

Who Is This Guide For?

Projects come in all shapes and sizes. Your team's next big invention? That's a project. Remodeling your kitchen? Ditto.

This book starts out with the basics of project management--it gets you up to speed on what lean, gantt, scrum and other project management terms are all about. It's perfect for the first time project manager, or anyone who feels overwhelmed by projects.

Then, there's app roundups of the best project management tools, along with the app stacks teams use to handle everything else in their projects. Those come alongside expert advice on running projects, choosing software, and using project management apps for personal tasks. They're perfect for anyone managing projects--whether you're looking for better tools and tricks to keep projects on schedule, or are just starting out.
