“Project governance is key to project success.”

Project management is a well-established doctrine (Time, Quality, Budget) supported by many tools and techniques. The art is to know when and how to use the tools at your disposal – both systems and personnel.

A rich collaboration of charts, diagrams, definitions, professional examples, workplace scenarios and specifically designed exercises – to complete throughout, this book offers a clear and informative yet hands-on approach to understanding the fundamentals of Project Management.

Project management:
“The efficient, effective and economic use of resources to achieve results with and through the efforts of other people.”

Extensive in point of reference and depth of knowledge, this work provides structured answers and expert guidance on a vast range of frequently asked – and less frequently asked – questions.

Ultimately, it enables its readers to create savings in time and avoid those costly mistakes through its ‘easy to use’ reference system.
