ISBN: 9781119298601

Project Management in Practice, 6th Edition is organized around the project management life cycle, focussing on the key topics within project management while following the process an actual project would go through. The authors describe project managers as continually balancing between the main objectives of scope, time and cost, while also factoring in organizations improvement, strategic goals and future opportunities. The text is written to offer an applied approach to project management so that students can use projects to achieve the strategic objectives of their organizations. This text outlines the concepts of project management with a practical and hands-on approach. There are icons in the margins that point out areas in which students should focus on as project managers in practice, honing in on important discussions that improve the student’s perspective on managing projects. This new edition includes updated problems and mini-cases, as well as an online appendix that focuses on time management.
