9780077091613: The Handbook Of Project-Based Management: Improving the Process for Achieving Strategic Objectives

The Handbook of Project-Based Management is designed to help anyone managing projects to implement strategic change and achieve their objectives. Now in its second edition, this highly successful book has become the standard reference in the field. It has been fully updated to include new research in developing areas of project-based management such as project success, strategy and the management of quality and risk. The new edition retains its five-part structure; beginning with an examination of the context of projects within organizations. The five functions of management in terms of scope, organisation, quality, cost and time are then examined. This is followed by an analysis of the various stages of the project life cycle. Part four describes administrative procedures including multi-project management, systems and the role of the manager. The book concludes with a description of the applications of project management and an illustration of how project-based management is adapted to different circumstances.
