Overview

"Project management can seem like a daunting endeavor to the untrained and uninitiated. Here is a book that spells out the basics of implementing a project management model and encourages critical thinking about how project management can help a company accomplish its business objectives.

Offering clear, concise explanations of different project phases, Project Management Step-by-Step also includes six case studies — positive and negative, real and fictional — that show clearly how project management works in the real world. The book is fully consistent with the newly updated Project Management Body of Knowledge, so its observations and recommendations are consistently applicable and thoroughly field-tested. Richman’s clear, accessible text is augmented with discussion questions, exercises, diagrams, charts, and a comprehensive glossary. Special passwords to free online information for students, instructors, and project management professionals are alone worth the price of the book.

Written in plain, jargon-free English, Project Management Step-by-Step is an incisive and complete guide — truly a perfect introduction to project management."

    Great beginning book!

    Very easy to read and understand. Comprehensive. Includes lots of examples, questions, case studies. Great glossary at the end with project management terms. Even though I'm not a project manager, I found lots of applications to my business.
