Can the guru of project management stump you?

Harold Kerzner has been a logic puzzle enthusiast for more than twenty years. In that time, he's found that not only do these brainteasers test his intellectual abilities, but they also improve his decision and problem-solving skills on the job.

In this challenging new book, Kerzner's Project Management Logic Puzzles, Dr. Kerzner presents 100 logic problems specifically tailored to help project managers not only understand project management but exercise the skills they might use on a day-to-day basis. Included are such helpful features as a problem-solving framework, hints for solving the puzzles, and a complete set of solutions.

Unlike other logic puzzle books, Kerzner's Project Management Logic Puzzles gives readers' minds a workout for solving tomorrow's project management problems with today's progressive thinking.
