ATLANTA, GA (November 21, 2011)—Fans of Jennifer Bridges’s powerful project management books and articles now have a superb new resource―”Project Pain Reliever, a Just-In-Time Handbook for Anyone Managing Projects.” The book, compiled and edited by Dave Garrett, co-founder and CEO of gantthead.com (the world’s largest dedicated community of IT project managers) offers insightful, peer-reviewed solutions from 36 project management thought leaders, subject matter experts and successful practitioners.
Jennifer Bridges contributed two of the chapters, “I Can’t Work with People at a Distance” and “The Office Politics Are Killing Me.” In the first, Bridges explores the importance of team selection, expectation setting, and both individual and group interaction for project managers working with remote teams. In the second contributed chapter, Bridges describes the challenges of office politics and how mastering them can foster team excellence, keep projects on track, and enhance the reputation of everyone involved (including the project manager).
“It was tremendously rewarding for me to be involved with “Project Pain Reliever,” says Bridges. “I believe it will become a classic reference work for project managers everywhere, not only seasoned professionals but also those who manage projects as a role and not a profession.”

Project Pain Reliever covers both the art and science of project management. It is organized by problem, so users need only review the table of contents, find the appropriate problem within a sub-chapter heading, read through the solution, and apply it. Each of the 93 sub-chapters describes a common project management problem and its warning signs, provides insight into the potential dangers of ignoring the problem, and offers steps and techniques to resolve the issue.
“As CEO of gantthead.com, I have spent more than a decade observing project managers as they ask project-critical questions of one another,” says Garrett. “Project managers must satisfy so many expectations―at multiple levels of every organization. This compendium finally provides a ready reference guide to handling and successfully resolving the common questions and problems project managers encounter.”
