Master the project management skills you need to keep up in today's changing business environments.

Recommended by the Project Management Institute.

With over 80 percent of software projects deemed as failures, the demand for project managers who possess the necessary skills and competencies to succeed is on the rise! The second edition of this bestselling book describes how business environments are changing, how that affects the project manager, and what role project management plays in today's organizations.

Written by expert consultants in project management, this book/CD-ROM package uses a simulated real-world scenario to teach you the skills you need to keep your IT project on schedule, within budget, and according to specification. From staging and planning to implementation and completion, you'll learn what it takes to become a world-class project manager.

This book shows you how to:
* Determine the scope of a project
* Estimate the length of a project and determine resource requirements and cost
* Construct and analyze the project network diagram
* Finalize a schedule based on resource availability
* Recruit, organize, and manage a project team
* Monitor and control the progress of a project
* Close out a successful project

The CD-ROM contains interactive files that reinforce the principles and skills discussed in the book. The authors walk you through the book's example scenario and the decisions you would make as the project manager. When you feel you're ready to manage a project on your own, you can practice the skills you've learned with the bonus scenario. Adobe(r) Acrobat Reader Version 4.0 and Microsoft(r) Project98 120-Day Evaluation Edition are also included.
