Now in its fifth edition, the text retains its laser-like focus on excellence in project management and outlines the key factors that influence project success. Designed to be practical and easy-to-use, this comprehensive resource is filled with the most recent ideas and time-tested strategies in the field. Author Eric Verzuh—a noted project management expert—delivers the information in short, lively segments that address the underlying principles, strategies, and management issues related to project management.

The revised fifth edition features new content on the vital role that innovation plays in most organizations, as well as fresh case studies that clearly demonstrate successful project management in action, and updated ideas for engaging stakeholders. The text offers details on the discipline of change management and gives suggestions for using Agile techniques for project scheduling. Advice for using Microsoft Project—the most commonly used software application specifically designed for planning and managing projects— is also included. In addition, the author provides references for preparing for the Project Management Institute's Project Management Professional exam.

Step by step, the author reveals how a project begins and the critical actions that bring the necessary stakeholders to agreement on the definition and direction of the project. The book then details the essential planning techniques and the tools that have been used by seasoned project managers to organize information in order to make better decisions.
