Project Management in the Real World
Focusing on all types of projects, Project Management in the Real World uses a case-study approach to combine the experiences of project managers from across the globe (the equivalent to 250+ working years), into one resource for project and programme managers. Project Management in the Real World contains over 50 cross-industry case studies – some of projects that went well, some of projects that went badly – plus a discussion of what readers can take from that experience, all backed up by theory and references.
Each chapter contains a wealth of knowledge and innovative ideas, as well as the tricks other professionals use that can be applied to help deliver projects more successfully. Unlike other books available on the subject, Project Management in the Real World is not focused on the traditional ‘start to finish’ process of managing a project. Instead, it explores:
- managing project budgets
- managing project scope
- managing project teams
- managing project plans
- managing yourself.
The book is aimed at both professional public and private sector project managers with some experience of managing projects.
