Overview

Whether it’s your first project or your one hundredth, its success depends on your ability to organize, plan, delegate, analyze, and so much more. Now is not the time for complicated theory or advanced concepts. You need the proven, universal underpinnings of real in-the-field project management methodology.

With more than 162,000 copies in print, Fundamentals of Project Management has offered a framework for countless top-flight projects in every conceivable environment. Now you can use the fourth edition of this super-practical reference, with critical updates based on the latest edition of the PMBOK Guide®, to help you plan and execute your project from start to finish.

The new edition of Fundamentals of Project Management includes three completely new chapters on creating the project risk plan; the change control process; and the role of the project manager as leader. Additionally, the book is packed with up-to-the-minute information on:

• Planning projects

• Creating and using a work breakdown structure to plan a project

• Producing a workable schedule

• Project control and evaluation

• Earned Value Analysis (EVA)

• Managing the project team

• Introducing and making project management work in your company

• And more.

Each of the fourteen accessible and clearly arranged chapters features enlightening examples and instructive, challenging exercises, the answers to which combine to form a valuable do’s-and-don’ts list applicable to all your current and future project endeavors.

Clear and down-to-earth, Fundamentals of Project Management explains how to effectively spearhead and manage every stage of a project—from developing mission goals and objectives to directing the project team—and how to make project management an indispensable profit-driver in your organization.

I bought this as a text book and was not expecting a good read. I was VERY surprised! The book was not only affordable (rare in this field!!) but it was an interesting and easy read. I have already shared some of the information with co-workers and at meetings. This is one text book I will keep!
