Description

Details

They say that project managers are a mile wide and an inch deep; they know something about everything but not much about anything. Richard Perrin's new book, Real-World Project Management, provides the skills and strategies that every project manager needs to successfully complete projects in virtually any field. With a particular focus on service, manufacturing, and IT projects, this thoughtful guide shows you how to become more knowledgeable and efficient in the real world of project management.

While the new edition of the Project Management Institute's Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) mentions many important aspects of project management in passing, it lacks the practical, real-world detail that most managers desire. This leaves many aspiring project managers without a clear perception of some vital subjects. Real-World Project Management fills that gap in knowledge with practical, workable solutions. Real-World Project Management gives you the real-world understanding the PMBOK® Guide can't provide and most managers only gain through long years of effort and experience.

You'll understand and utilize the most useful tools and techniques in project management, including:

  • Critical chain project management
  • Analytic hierarchy process
  • Monte Carlo analysis and decision tree analysis
  • The seven Ishikawa quality tools
  • Quality Functional Development (QFD)
  • Financial management and risk tools
Each chapter ends with a list of recommended reading that lets you pursue any area of interest in far greater depth than other resources provide. In addition, you'll find specific recommendations for implementing tools in such vital programs as Microsoft Excel. For reliable project management expertise that works in real environments and real situations, look no further than Real-World Project Management.

CLEARANCE NOTICE: The remaining Real-World Project Management books in stock will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
