This book is a solid reference guide that benefits managers and engineers who want to improve efficiency of their project execution. It provides more than analyse of Project 2003 software; there also are sections about using VBA codes which rising your project on the highest level. All samples information are useful as references in other works or, as is the case here, to help explain and outline how a project can be managed on the most successful way.
