From the Back Cover:

Business and Economics/Project Management

A British parliamentary committee criticizes the spiraling costsof the 2012 London Olympics.

Infrastructure costs had risen by $1.8 billion over the figurequoted.

The U.S. Navy orders Lockheed to stop work on the newcoastal-waters warship because of big cost overruns.

In a study of 300 large companies, consulting firm Peat Marwickfinds that 65 percent of hardware and/or software developmentprojects were significantly behind schedule, over budget, or failedto deliver value in terms of expected performance.

In a report on the current state of IT project implementation,the Standish Group predicts that out of a total of 300,000 projectsthat cost over $350 billion, approximately 43 percent willovershoot their initial cost estimates, while 63 percent will fallbehind schedule and perform at only two-thirds of their expectedcapability.

Why do these problems persist? One key answer is the lack of anintegrated cost and value management framework.

Cost and Value Management in Projects provides practicingmanagers with a thorough understanding of the various dimensions ofcost and value in projects, along with the factors that impactthem, and the managerial approaches that would be most effectivefor achieving cost efficiency and value optimization. Addressingcost from a strategic—rather than just atactical—perspective, this book:

  • Examines project management decision areas that have thepotential to enhance value, along with relevant managerialapproaches that can be used to optimize that value

  • Outlines an integrated framework for managing cost and valuethat can be useful to practicing project managers

  • Provides prescriptive advice on how to avoid common pitfalls inmanaging cost and value in projects

Projects have become one of the key means by which organizationsadd to their

bottom lines. Mastering the project-based skills, including costand value management, contained in this book will confer animportant advantage on every organization in the relentlesscompetition for profits, market share, and technicalinnovations.
