9780470183885: Case Studies in Project, Program, and Organizational Project Management

The ever expanding market need for information on how to apply project management principles and the PMBOK® contents to day-to-day business situations has been met by our case studies book by Harold Kerzner. That book was a spin-off from and ancillary to his best selling text but has gained a life of its own beyond adopters of that textbook. All indications are that the market is hungry for more cases while our own need to expand the content we control, both in-print and online woudl benefit from such an expansion of project management "case content". The authors propose to produce a book of cases that compliment Kerzner's book. A book that offers cases beyond the general project management areas and into PMI®'s growth areas of program management and organizational project management. The book will be structured to follow the PMBOK in coverage so that it can not only be used to supplement project management courses, but also for self sudy and training courses for the PMP® Exam.

From the Back Cover:

Business & Economics/Project Management

"What makes this book especially appealing as a learning tool is its content organization that allows readers to focus selectively on issues in specific areas, such as the nine knowledge areas of PMI's PMBOK® Guide, or a program life-cycle phase, or best practices related to PMI's OPM3®."—Hans Thamhain, PMP, PhD Bentley College

"This wide-ranging book will serve the needs of its readers in many ways by addressing multiple knowledge areas as well as describing best practices beyond any specific area. Furthermore, it addresses one of the most timely (and least understood) areas in the field—the hierarchical perspective of project, program, and organization."—Aaron Shenahr, PhD, Rutgers Business School

A unique, detailed guide to project management through real-life case studies

As the application of project management techniques expands to include day-to-day business operations, students and professionals are recognizing the need to develop the skills necessary to meet this growing trend. To help accelerate and enrich learning of the changes taking place in project management use in business, this valuable reference provides real-world guidance to project managers on the job, and supports college texts covering project management and related areas of study by examining actual case examples from different industries in diverse knowledge areas. This book:

  • Follows the established guidelines set in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Fourth Edition by the Project Management Institute (PMI)

  • Includes exploration of new areas of standard development, such as program management and OPM3® (Organizational Project Management Maturity Model)

Case Studies in Project, Program, and Organizational Project Management fills a void in the management field by being the first book of its kind to comprehensively arrange case studies into clearly defined categories to effectively deliver important lessons and concepts from a real-world perspective.
