Visualization: A powerful technique for achieving high performance

Complex systems do not require complex project management. The most effective project managers are able to simplify their project environment and organize projects, large and small, to achieve predictable results. This book explains how anyone responsible for a project can apply the same powerful methods, based on proven visual models, including these five essentials:

Organizational commitment—The foundation for the project that includes: a culture responsive to the project manager; the project team's charter to do the job; the financial and other necessary resources; and the tools and training for effective execution.

Communication—The language and techniques used to interact effectively and function as a project team.

Teamwork—Efficiently working together to achieve a common goal, with acknowledged interdependency and trust, acceptance of a common code of conduct, and a shared reward.

Project cycle—The overall strategic and tactical project management approach, performed in periods and phases, and punctuated by key decisions. The project cycle usually starts with the identification of user needs, ends with project products, and is comprised of business, budget, and technical aspects.

Management elements—The ten categories of management responsibilities, techniques, and tools that are situationally applied throughout all phases of the project cycle by all stakeholders.

Authors Forsberg, Mooz, and Cotterman are leading project management consultants who have helped shape the direction of project management thinking and culture. With the cooperation of their major clients, the processes and techniques in this landmark book have been confirmed and tested by more than 40,000 working project managers.

The Physics of Coronary Blood Flow (Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering)
The Physics of Coronary Blood Flow (Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering)
Coronary blood flow is blood flow to the heart for its own metabolic needs. In the most common form of heart disease there is a disruption in this flow because of obstructive disease in the vessels that carry the flow. The subject of coronary blood flow is therefore associated mostly with the pathophysiology of this disease, rarely with dynamics or...
