Dalla quarta di copertina
PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS EDITIONS OF RAISING CAPITAL:
“… a definitive guide for entrepreneurs and growing companies that need to raise capital.”
— Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“Combating the often elusive nature of understanding private investing and venture capital, Andrew Sherman has prepared in one reference source a primer that demystifies in simple, layman’s terms how this process actually works. A must-have for any first-time entrepreneur in search of capitalizing a start-up enterprise.”
— Julia Spicer, Executive Director, Mid-Atlantic Venture Association
“Kudos to Andrew Sherman and his editors. Rarely does a second edition of a best-selling primer widely improve on its original. But Sherman’s new Raising Capital does that grandly. For anyone embarking on raising money—for the first time or the tenth time — this is a must-have tool. It’s the next best thing to having Andrew Sherman himself at your elbow.”
— Burt Alimansky, Chairman, The Capital Roundtable, and Managing Director, Alimansky Capital Group Inc.
“Capital is the lifeblood of an organization, and Raising Capital is the definitive guide to making it pump. Andrew Sherman has pulled all the tips and tricks together into one comprehensive guide. Raising money is hard enough; finding out how to do it shouldn’t be.”
— Verne Harnish, “Growth Guy” syndicated columnist; Founder, Young Entrepreneurs’ Organization
“I heartily recommend Raising Capital to all entrepreneurs starting down the fundraising path. If those seeking funding from our angel investor groups would read this book first, there would be a lot fewer disappointed business owners!”
— John May, Co-Founder, The Dinner Clubs and coauthor of Every Business Needs an Angel
“Andrew Sherman has been counsel to some of the most exciting start-ups in the mid-Atlantic region. His hands-on experience guiding companies through good times and challenging periods provides the real-world insight that aspiring entrepreneurs can put to use. Because he recognizes that not all start-ups are candidates for venture capital, he lays out the various alternatives. For those companies which are a good match for venture capital, he provides practical guidance for getting from business concept to successful IPO or acquisition.”
— John S. Taylor, Vice President of Research, National Venture Capital Association

Principali recensioni dei clienti
This book contains little about the theory of project management, which is great as there are enough of those available already. Instead it's jam-packed full of how the fundamental principals of good management supported by the practical and pragmatic use of solid project management techniques and tools helps everyone on the team, regardless of their position in the hierarchy, can identify the root cause of project failure while maintaining objectivity.
Williams achieves this by clearly setting out and describing each step along the recovery process. He takes the reader through each individual aspect involved, refers constantly to real-life case studies, and provides key questions to ask along with options for dealing with difficult or challenging situations.
Once you've read the book through it is easy to dip in and out of the various sections. This definitely helps where expertise is stronger in one area than another. I particularly liked his use of a chapter relationship chart that lets the reader see quickly where related subject matter can be found elsewhere in the book, and the takeaways at the end of each chapter where key messages and reminders in bullet point form act as quick memory-joggers.
Anyone interested in recovering a failing project or putting in place strategies to help avoid failure in the first place, will benefit from this book. Buy it, read it and keep it by your side. It's a book to be used and will become dog-eared as you refer to it time and again.

Todd pays excellent attention to how people at all levels of management impact the success or failure of a project. At the same time, Todd forces to rely on facts, not opinions of what may be going wrong with a project. Todd offers a sound methodology of recovering the project and the elements of what should be included in any project management plan.
He addresses all aspects of auditing the project for a proper assessment and analysis to make sure the project or parts of the project are even worth fixing. Rather than move right to execution, I appreciated the negotiation section to ensure that before going forward all interested parties are focused on the right result.
Although this is a "rescue" methodology, knowing how to fix the project will ensure you head off the problem before it even starts. Finally, the methodology pays homage to the customer whose happiness determines our business success.
Todd gives great guidance and sound advice in accurately assessing and dealing with troubled projects. He is an experienced practitioner who has been involved with turning around hundreds of failing projects.
Todd gives practical advice on how to audit projects, analyze data, and applicable approaches and solutions for those finding themselves with a troubled project that may be over budget, running late or out of control.
Anyone who is involved with running projects needs to read his sound advice to prevent your project from getting into trouble.
1. The author emphasizes the need to ask open ended questions and listen because all stakeholders involved in a troubled project really can and in my experience have been extremely valuable sources of information.
2. He emphasizes the need to remain unbiased, objective and tactful; behaviors that should be top of mind for all who serve clients.
