Overview

Project Management: the discipline of organizing and managing resources so that a project is completed within defined scope, quality, time, and cost constraints. Oh, if only it really was that simple. Once you have the specs of the project, it is time to get down to business and manage people. And therein lies many a problem. Fuzzy, ambiguous, and subject to emotional nuances and sentimental knee-jerk reactions, people issues are often the most problematic piece of any project.

As effective as it is applicable, the Triple C Model is becoming the project management mode of choice across a wide variety of organizations. The new commander of the US Air Force's Air University, Lt-General Allen Peck has cited Communication-Cooperation-Coordination as a primary theme during his administration.

Tackling the soft side of project management, Triple C Model of Project Management: Communication, Cooperation, and Coordination provides practical steps for managing any project. It presents real-world applications and case studies that illustrate the application of the Triple C Model. The author covers techniques for tracking, managing, and controlling project costs as well as implementing the project management body of knowledge (PMBOK®). He includes schedule performance appraisals, project performance appraisals, and alternate project organization structures.

Whether you are in the software or construction industry, or any other industry, the tools and techniques of project management remain the same. The key to success will always rest on the communication, cooperation, and coordination of your team. This book explains how communication leads to cooperation, which leads to coordination, which leads to project harmony, which leads to project success.
