This book is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.<br /><br /><p>Predicting the time needed to complete a project, task or daily activity can be difficult and people frequently underestimate how long an activity will take. This book sheds light on why and when this happens, what we should do to avoid it and how to give more realistic time predictions. It describes methods for predicting time usage in situations with high uncertainty, explains why two plus two is usually more than four in time prediction contexts, reports on research on time prediction biases, and summarizes the evidence in support of different time prediction methods and principles. Based on a comprehensive review of the research, it is the first book summarizing what we know about judgment-based time predictions.<br /></p><p></p> Large parts of the book are directed toward people wishing to achieve better time predictions in their professional life, such as project managers, graphic designers, architects, engineers, film producers, consultants, software developers, or anyone else in need of realistic time usage predictions. It is also of benefit to those with a general interest in judgment and decision-making or those who want to improve their ability to predict and plan ahead in daily life.<p></p>

<p>This open access book looks at how a democracy can devolve into a post-factual state.</p><p>The media is being flooded by populist narratives, fake news, conspiracy theories and make-believe. Misinformation is turning into a challenge for all of us, whether politicians, journalists, or citizens. In the age of information, attention is a prime asset and may be converted into money, power, and influence – sometimes at the cost of facts. The point is to obtain exposure on the air and in print media, and to generate traffic on social media platforms. With information in abundance and attention scarce, the competition is ever fiercer with truth all too often becoming the first victim.</p><p>Reality Lost: Markets of Attention, Misinformation and Manipulation is an analysis by philosophers Vincent F. Hendricks and Mads Vestergaard of the nuts and bolts of the information market, the attention economy and media eco-system which may pave way to postfactual democracy. Here misleading narratives become the basis for political opinion formation, debate, and legislation. To curb this development and the threat it poses to democratic deliberation, political self-determination and freedom, it is necessary that we first grasp the mechanisms and structural conditions that cause it. </p><p><br /></p><p><br /></p><p>   </p><p></p><p></p><p></p>

Unrealistic? Perhaps. Impossible? Probably not. Either way, that's all you're getting. What's a project manager to do?<br /><br />One of the most frequent complaints among project managers is that best practices such as PMBoK and PRINCE say you should work out what a project is about first, then estimate the work needed to do it, then determine the likely cost and schedule. <br /><br />In reality, it often happens that after project managers are nominated to their roles, they’re told what the deadline is and how much money is available, and that's the end of that. Many PMs go through the best practice processes they learned, then discover that they simply can't get there from here. And that there simply isn't any way to deliver what's required in the allotted time and budget. <br /><br />But their program managers or executives won't budge an inch. The budget is formulated, the shareholder or stakeholder promises have been made. “Suck it up. Do more with less. We hired a great PM like you to make things happen and get it done .” We've heard it all before. No wonder project failure rates are what they are. <br /><br />Is there no end to the madness?<br /><br />Well, yes, there is. <br /><br />Simmer Down! explains what a project manager can do when faced with such a situation so they can satisfy both the customer and the constraints. It's also going to be useful to help program managers explain to the project managers that sometimes the world doesn’t revolve around them. <br /><br />Let's face it: there can only be one priority A-1 project. Everything else has to revolve around that fact. Managing that thought process is the way to make sense out of all the impossible contradictions.<br /><br />Simmer Down! explains how a project gets on the board in the first place. It provides many tips on how a project manager can influence the action during the early stages, the planning stages, and even after work begins to obtain and maintain the most reasonable possible expectations for cost, schedule and scope.<br /><br />Dr. Douglas Brown shares the lessons of over 20 years of experience in project and program planning and execution in both commercial and government settings. In all that time, more money up front has seldom been an option. So a better understanding of what the stakeholders can get for the money they do have is the way to go.<br />
