Take charge of any project with this real-world guide.

Project Management in Practice, 3rd Edition is a concise, hands-on guide that gives you just what you need to jump into a project and succeed.  Leaving discussions of the historical development of the field, academic research, and theory to other texts, this book shows you how to do project management in a real-world situation.

With Project Management in Practice, you will learn practical and effective approaches to managing project teams, costs, resources, uncertainty, and deliverables of any type of project. And you will learn how to apply proven project management tools and techniques at each stage in a project’s life-cycle––from selecting and initiating projects, to scheduling and budgeting, to project monitoring and control, to termination.

Features in the new Third Edition include:

  • A practical, hands-on approach
  • Organization that follows the project management life cycle—mirroring the way a real-world project would be executed
  • Updated vignettes and cases, and the addition of caselettes that illustrate how to apply the concepts
  • New discussions of ethics, globalization, and the “whole brain approach” to planning
  • Trial versions of Microsoft Project 2007 and Crystal Ball risk analysis software, included with the book, that familiarize you with key project management software tools

With this no-nonsense, real-world oriented guide, you will develop solid project management skills that you can rely on wherever your career takes you.
