Managing a project is tough, managing multiple projects can be overwhelming. To succeed you need the skills of a juggler, a mind that can multi-process, and a spirit of adventure. A great reference guide can only be a bonus and this is exactly what you have in Managing Multiple Projects. Your perfect ‘assistant’ in successfully leading multiple projects, Elizabeth Harrin’s book really delivers the practical help you need with a framework to tame the chaos.
Peter Taylor, author of The Lazy Project Manager
An excellent guidebook for project managers and others juggling multiple projects. Filled with practical advice on managing it all, you will become a better project manager. Elizabeth Harrin lays out a framework that is easy to follow and will help you get control of your workload. To get the most out of this book, implement the action steps at the end of each chapter and check out the appendices to find helpful checklists and templates. I highly recommend this book!

After reading your Managing Multiple Projects book, I could clearly relate all my challenges over the last twenty years with various companies managing projects/programs.
Now with better clarity through your resources, I immediately took action to improve myself since this week. I can feel the new vigour in me now, and hope to maintain the consistency.
Thank you so much for your timely resources. Sincerely enjoying reading your email newsletters and blog.
Project management is changing. Rather than focusing solely on one large project, the majority of project managers are now expected to juggle multiple projects, and that brings a different set of challenges.
It’s time for a new way of working — a way that is aligned to the realities of managing many things at the same time. It’s time for practical working methods that help us layer project upon project, because repeating the linear process of managing one single project over and over is a bloated and inefficient way to work.
There is a better way, and you’re about to learn it.
Thanks for seeking out the online resources that go alongside my book, Managing Multiple Projects: How project managers can balance priorities, manage expectations and increase productivity.*
