Project management: the managerial process
Project Management strikes a balance between the technical and human aspects of managing projects. It is suitable for a course in project management and for professionals who seek a project management handbook. This text addresses the major questions and issues the authors have encountered while teaching and consulting with practicing project managers in domestic and foreign countries. The text is very contemporary and up-to-date. This application-oriented text provides a road map for managing any type of project--for example, information technology, R & D, engineering design, construction, pharmaceutical, and manufacturing. The text helps the reader discover the strategic role of projects in contemporary organizations, how projects are prioritized, what tools and techniques can be used to plan and schedule projects, what organization and managerial styles will improve chances of project success, how project managers orchestrate the complex network of relationships, factors that contribute to the development of a high performing project team, the project system which will help gain some measure of control, how project managers prepare for a new international project in a foreign culture, and finally how senior management can develop a supportive organizational culture for implementing projects.
