Elements of project management: plan, schedule, and control
Here are the tools you need to arrange an effective plan and schedule and the techniques necessary to monitor and control your project once it's underway. Following the sequence of how an actual project evolves, the guide also shows you how to handle project costs, deal with labor allocation, and implement the right computer applications for your special needs. This second edition updates the most significant developments and improvements that have occurred in project management over the past few years, helping you ensure more efficient, successful projects from the start. These changes include: the phenomenal growth of the personal computer which has permitted the concept of project management to expand in virtually every type of endeavor...and the current emphasis of participative management and employee involvement (PM/EI) in business and industry. The guide is equally suited for readers from both the academic and professional business worlds.
