Overview

Too many companies are working on the wrong projects. Project portfolios are filled with projects that do not provide real value at completion even though the triple constraints of time, cost, and performance have been carefully managed and met.

Based on principles set forth in the bestselling Project Management: A Systems Approach to Planning, Scheduling, and Controlling. Tenth Edition, this easy-to-follow guide will revolutionize the way you view and practice project management. It introduces the acclaimed Kerzner Approach(R), demonstrating how it empowers you with the skills needed to ensure that projects are completed successfully. Most importantly, it shows you how to design and implement projects that deliver true value.

The International Institute for Learning/Wiley Series in Project Management features the most innovative, tested-and-proven approaches to project management, all explained in clear, straightforward language. The series offers new perspectives on solving tough project management problems as well as practical tools for getting the job done. Each book in the series is drawn from the related IlL course and is written by noted project management experts.
