Review:
Gain the skills and tools to become an effective project manager

Get ready for a more robust approach to project management — one that recognizes the project environment and adapts accordingly. This resource first introduces you to the tools, templates, and processes that you'll need in your toolkit. You'll then explore five different project management life cycle (PMLC) models for managing a project: Linear, Incremental, Iterative, Adaptive, and Extreme. Along the way, you'll find step-by-step guidance on how to apply each technique. All of this will give you a complete understanding of how to successfully complete projects on time and within budget.

This comprehensive guide helps you:

  • Apply all nine Knowledge Areas defined in PMBOK

  • Establish project management life cycles and strategies

  • Decide on the best method for managing specific types of projects

  • Select and use best-of-breed project management tools and templates for each management task

  • Utilize the Project Support Office, Project Portfolio Management, and Continuous Process Improvement programs

  • Prevent projects from becoming distressed and create effective intervention strategies

  • Continuously adapt your chosen project management model to changing project conditions

  • Manage multiple team projects by integrating the tools, templates, and processes into a single team
