The holy grail of project management is knowing, in terms of both budget and time, where you stand at any given moment, while making course corrections in real time. Most project management systems don't even come close. Joe Knight (co-author of the bestselling Financial Intelligence), Roger Thomas, and Brad Angus have the answer: an easy-to-implement system, developed and field-tested for almost two decades, that will teach you how to: Track progress on a weekly basis against budget and deadlines Harness your team to fix whatever goes wrong Identify the need to change orders as they happen and incorporate each change into the overall project financials Use a detailed database of past projects for calculating costs and hours for the most accurate possible budgets Project-management professionals, entrepreneurs, and managers in companies both big and small cannot afford to find out after the fact that they missed their targets. Project Management for Profitintroduces the Setpoint system to get you where you need to be, on time and on budget.
