In previous editions, this book has established itself as the definitive guide to effective project management. Now, with this major revision, it’s updated to reflect significant changes in project management practices over the last few years. Written again by Robert K. Wysocki and a new coauthor, Rudd McGary, this book covers traditional methods of project management as well as adaptive and extreme approaches. Unlike other project management books that simply give abstract advice, this timely book mentors you though a series of real-world exercises and adheres to the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Body of Knowledge, 2000 Edition.
Effective Project Management is packed with thought-provoking discussion questions related to the chapter materials and case study as well as an abundance of exercises. The material covers:
- Traditional project management, including risk assessment and control
- Generating, building, and representing the Work Breakdown Structure
- Estimating duration, resource requirements, and cost
- Constructing and analyzing the project network diagram
- Organizing and conducting the Joint Project Planning session
- Recruiting and managing a project team
- Adaptive Project Framework, Extreme Project Management, and their core values
- Project portfolio management, including prioritizing projects
