Practical, Proven, and Down-to-Earth Guidance for Effective Project Management
First published in 1991, Project Planning, Scheduling, and Control has become the standard guidebook for achieving real-world project management success. Renowned for its non-theoretical exploration of the techniques—and even more important, the flexibility—required in day-to-day project management situations, this unique step-by-step book provides principles that apply to every phase of guiding a project to its successful conclusion.
Thoroughly updated to encompass the tremendous technological and workplace changes of the past decade—with exceptional illustrations and graphics to illuminate key points—this clearly written, applications-oriented project management blueprint reveals easy-to-follow guidelines for: * Maintaining control of multiple simultaneous projects * Dealing with the "people" issues involved in project teams * Developing a workable project methodology
Project Planning, Scheduling, and Control is much more than just a static, one-size-fits-all answer book. Keeping the focus on state-of-the-art approaches for managing the whole project—as opposed to simply presenting yesterday’s well-worn jargon—it shows you how to view a project from all angles, and teaches you the principles necessary to solve a wide variety of project-related difficulties.
In Project Planning, Scheduling, and Control, 3rd Edition, James P. Lewis—one of the top experts and best-known authors in the timely project management field—outlines a well-ordered system for project management, and continues his trademark approach of providing professional guidance that is down-to-earth, readable, and understandable. This start-to-finish template explains the core methods, principles, and practices of project management, and is of immense value for anyone who needs to meet ISO performance criteria, achieve top performance, and attain specified project goals—every time.
