Dennis Lock's masterly exposition of the principles and practice of project management has been pre-eminent in its field for 45 years and was among the first books to treat project management as a holistic subject. But Project Management has been kept completely up to date by regular and sensitive revisions to ensure that it remains fresh and totally relevant. Project Management explains the entire project management process in great detail, demonstrating techniques from simple charts to detailed computer applications. Everything is reinforced with clear diagrams and case examples, many new for this edition. The author has expanded discussion of topics such as supply chain management and the project management office (PMO), and there are new chapters about implementing change management projects and the role of senior managers in supporting projects. Obsolescent or less frequently used methods have been stripped out, but readers of the hardback Tutor’s Edition will find that this deleted material lives on as new chapters on the accompanying CD-ROM, which has itself also been thoroughly revised. Importantly, that disc includes comprehensive Power Point presentations with hundreds of well designed slides that tutors can use directly as a valuable resource for their lectures. Students have always commented on this book’s reader-friendly style, which is free of unnecessary jargon, with clear diagrams and a construction that is logically organized, well indexed and simple to navigate. This Tenth Edition is certain to maintain the book's acclaimed status as the standard work for managers and students alike.

About the Author:

Dennis Lock is a freelance writer who specializes in project management. His exceptionally wide industrial experience has included sub-miniature electronics, defence systems, heavy engineering and international mining, with a progression of successful management positions in all of those industries. He has fulfilled consultancy assignments in Britain and overseas and in recent years has taught project management to masters degree students as an external lecturer at two British universities. Of well over 50 books that he has written or edited, almost all have been published by Gower. Among his current work he is co-editing the first edition of a new Gower Handbook, The Gower Handbook of People in Project Management.

Review:

...As in the previous editions, the writing is always simple, clear and lucid, and the material is very logically organised. Students often comment that this book is the most readable of all the recommended books in my reading lists, and this is often the one which they choose to buy. I particularly dislike management jargon and this book is refreshingly free of it. It is a very practical book which appeals to the whole range of students I teach and I thoroughly recommend it. ' Dr Sally Brailsford, University of Southampton, UK'This extensive and exhaustive book deals with almost every aspect of Project Management in its widest sense, including construction and civil engineering projects....The author is obviously very experienced in the field, and in teaching the field. This is aided considerably by the liberal inclusion of useful and informative illustrative case studies. Again, the writing style of the author is to be commended in that these are easily digested and very helpful in adding context to the concepts discussed in the relevant sections.' Building Engineer,3'I have been a fan of Dennis Lock's clarity of thought and objectivity for many years and thoroughly recommend this latest edition as the definitive, readable and practical guide to hands on project management.' Marine Engineers Review'The simplicity of the book makes it an ideal text for exploring some of the more complex facets of project management. The book is well established and has been successfully used in educational settings and by engineers looking to update their skills. A particular strength is the emphasis on cost and identification, which pervade most areas. The book does an admirable job in explaining complicated ideas in a simple way, which is what has made this title an institution for the last eight editions and 36 years.'Dr. Darren Dalcher, Professor of Software Project Management and Head of Software Forensics Centre at Middlesex University and Visiting Professor of Computer Science at the University of Iceland
