Written in an accessible style, Professional Project Management: Bridging Complexity, Uncertainty and Change, Second Edition, deconstructs project management into language suitable for anyone wanting to improve their project management skills, and would be suitable for tertiary students studying project management as part of their degree as well as for project management practitioners wishing to refresh their knowledge.
Project theory and practice are examined across a variety of contexts, industry sectors and qualification levels, with content covering: scope, time, quality, risk, contracts and procurement, communications management, resources, governance, innovation, lifecycles, sustainability, key stakeholders, strategy and work, as well as health and safety.
The book is structured in four convenient parts: Part I summarizes the discipline; Part II covers the bulk of project management theory; Part III contains a MS Project ‘quick start’ guide; and Part IV includes 14 sample project management templates that can be used with any project. Additional cases also appear in most chapters of this new edition. A wealth of supplementary material is also available from the tilde website, including downloadable versions of the sample project management templates.
