Overview

Aviation Project Management builds on the successful and popular work of Dennis Lock but is considerably enhanced by applications, examples, illustrations and case examples pertaining to projects exclusively from the aviation industry.

It provides a practical guide to those interested in how projects are managed and the common mistakes that aviation project managers should avoid.
