Project management is a rapidly growing focus discipline within most businesses and organizations. Finding the optimal way of operating and managing projects is a continuous challenge. It might involve fine-tuning work methods, clarifying roles and simplifying project reporting, or visualizing progress through the utilization of user-friendly project tools.
Project management of today concerns the entire organization, whether it is a private enterprise or a public authority. Almost everyone in their professional careers come across projects one way or the other.
Project Management can be used for training and educational purposes, and as a handbook when executing projects or during a certification process. The disposition of the book follows a project’s flow. Sections on project methodology are mixed with chapters on leadership and personal development. Content and terminology are adapted to match PMI’s and IPMA’s view on project management.
Project Management also deals with change management, project maturity and the project office, which should appeal to any business executive and decision maker who holds responsibility for the development of the organization and the utilization of resources.
