Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While there are many books of methods and tools in different areas, project management has few books that actually give detailed tips and lessons on how to effectively set up and manage projects. Most devote all their space to specific methods.

Breakthrough Technology Project Management provides tangible guidelines through examples and suggestions to help people participate in and manage projects more effectively. The authors' techniques and guidelines have been proven over the past 15 years in courses and counseling. Their experience is that many project managers have knowledge of basic definitions, but do not have the training or skills to actually manage the projects effectively. This book is a valuable tool for those working in information systems, engineering, computer science, operations and production, and other environments involving project management.
