You've got 24 hours to go, and a list of jobs as long as your arm. Well, you
would have, anyway, if you had time to write out the list. Why is it that so
many projects seem to come on top of the rest of the work, rather than in place
of it? If you have a press launch or an office party to organize, a corporate
newsletter to get out or an exhibition appearance to arrange, your routine work
doesn't make way for it. That's why small but vital projects so often get pushed
to the back of the queue. There is good news, however, the basic guidelines
for managing a project are consistent whatever the project, and whatever it's
size. And they're all in this book. Here you'll find everything you need to
get your project completed on time, even if you're not starting it until the
eleventh hour (or even later).
The Fast Thinking Series: It's a fast world with tight deadlines
and you squeezed in between. What you need are fast solutions to help you think
at the speed of life. Each of these books gives the clever tips and vital information
you need to make the best of your last minute preparation. You'll look good.
They'll never know. Smart thinking is Fast Thinking.
