Understanding Project Management : A Practical Guide Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
Many books for introductory project management courses are written with heavy detail and are designed for experienced project managers running large-scale projects.
In this slim guide, skilled expert Dave C. Barrett prepares students to manage projects with a "let's walk before we run" approach, offering the perfect amount of detail for students new to the field who are lacking practical project experience.
Learning only the most critical project management concepts and processes, students are taken through an ongoing case study that follows a moderately sized project from its initiation to completion. This new book offers the actual project management documents produced during the case study and will equip readers with a solid understanding of why each of the processes are used, why the decisions are made, and how the pieces of project management fit together.
Suitable for any discipline or industry, Understanding Project Management promises to be a light, engaging, and quick read.
