When there is no time for theory–just effective, systematic methods for planning and controlling projects–open the Project Management ToolBox. It provides more than fifty tools and techniques that ensure a seamless performance of orderly project activities resulting in fast, repeatable, high-quality products in any industry. Based on the industry-standard Project Management Institute’s Body of Knowledge, this instant-access guide provides the tools, skill sets, expert advice, and step-by-step guidance to:

  • Plan projects realistically to accomplish business goals and strategies
  • Control project scope, schedule, cost, and quality
  • Build effective teams and respond to risk
  • Select and customize a PM toolbox by project size or type
  • Align the PM toolbox with corporate strategy

Book News Annotation:

Stressing the practical over the theoretical, Milosevic (engineering and technology management, Portland State University) discusses about 50 tools and techniques for planning and controlling projects. Reflecting the industry-standard Project Management Institute's Body of Knowledge, this guide offers advice on developing strategies, controlling scope, scheduling, controlling cost, quality management, team-building, and risk management. Throughout the coverage, the impotence of aligning management tools with corporate strategy is emphasized.
