Overview

Timely and accessible content on the traditional project management activities of control, risk, time and cost, and quality and value

The Wiley Guides to the Management of Projects address critical, need-to-know information that will help professionals successfully manage projects in most businesses and help students learn the best practices of the industry. They contain not only well-known and widely used basic project management practices but also the newest and most cutting-edge concepts in the broader theory and practice of managing projects.

This second book in the series explains the "traditional" project management activities of control, risk, time, cost, and quality. The expert contributors show that project control represents more than the simple evaluation of project performance. They detail the principles of project time and cost control and offer a detailed review of critical chain project management. In addition, they provide a framework for project performance measurement, show how to make risk management more effective, and tell how to improve quality management.

Touching on all of the fundamental levers of project control, this book will prove to be a comprehensive "owner's manual" for project and team managers, project team members, engineers, business consultants, and all those involved in any aspect of project management.
