Project management is changing. Rather than focusing solely on one large project, the majority of project managers are now expected to juggle multiple projects, which brings a different set of challenges.

Between a greater number of project sponsors, resource conflicts and constant pressure from deadlines, it can be difficult to avoid burnout. Managing Multiple Projects blends formal project management techniques with time management and productivity tools in a step-by-step approach to consolidating your workload. From combining schedules to prioritising work and engaging stakeholders, this book clearly explains how to adapt your behaviour and techniques to successfully work on several projects at once.

This practical guide provides answers to commonly asked questions (such as how to reduce the number of meetings and how to manage a To Do list) and includes case studies from real project managers. Checklists for common tasks and adaptable templates of trackers and reports are combined with easily actioned exercises to improve processes. Managing Multiple Projects gives practitioners the tools they need to improve the chances of project success and maintain a work-life balance. Online resources include downloadable templates of productivity checklists and status reports.

    Elizabeth highlights what so many project managers discover when they leave the corporate world-our project management education and experience focuses on managing one large project, but that isn’t necessarily the reality when working with smaller businesses or when working as an independent project manager. Elizabeth’s book provides a framework that works taking into account the role of other people in the overall project’s success. Her framework as well as suggestions enable the project manager to position themselves so that they don’t become frustrated or burnt out.

    Full disclosure: Elizabeth appeared on my podcast and her publisher arranged for me to receive an advance review copy of this book.

    I don’t know too many people who only wear one hat. Against this backdrop, I was curious about Elizabeth’s new book.

    It does not disappoint.

    It is jampacked with oodles of resources and compelling research. The overall framework makes a great deal of sense. I recommend it to anyone trying to effectively juggle more than one ball.
