From the PublisherThis book is founded upon PMI's work, but provides broader coverage of contemporary topics of current interest in project management. After the initial chapters, the author pushes beyond the basic model view to cover topics that may interest project managers in the future. With 37 chapters spread over ten parts, this work is comprehensive, starting with ‘Conceptual Overview of the Project Environment’ and finishing with ‘Ethical Project Management Practices.’ This extensive coverage is justified, and includes current topics such as organizational maturity, outsourcing, and project governance. The book also includes three short appendices on financial metrics, templates, and project repository architecture. This book expands on PMI's PMBOK® Guide, providing readers with a balanced knowledge of theory, organizational issues, and the associated human behavior needed to manage real-world projects effectively. It is an ideal choice for graduate management students, as well as those seeking project management certification. The later chapters, starting with Part 5, ‘Planning Support Processes,’ will particularly interest practicing project managers.
