Know how to respond when things don't fall into place.
Skydiving has its inherent risks. Even though a professional team, like the one depicted on the cover, can make skydiving seem perfectly choreographed; there are always uncertainties. Whether it's getting a skydiving team into the air or a new product off the ground, no project has ever been completed exactly as planned.
With Meredith and Mantel's Sixth Edition, you'll not only learn how to select, initiate, operate, and control all types of projects; you'll also learn how to manage risks and uncertainties. Written from a managerial perspective, the text equips you with the quantitative skills, knowledge of organizational issues, and insights into human behavior that you need to do project management effectively.
Updated and revised, this edition features current coverage of topics such as:
* Risk management
* Lifecycle costing
* Real options
* Organizational process assets
* Non-technical project terminations
* The phase/quality-gate process
* Requirements formulation analysis
