Master project management, today's most critical business skill!

Project management leadership is today's #1 business skill. Talented, knowledgeable project managers command the best assignments and compensation: they are the future leaders of business.

You'll find coverage of all this, and more:

  • Mastering today's latest rapid development management techniques
  • Managing risks and problems more effectively
  • Handling the unique challenges of IT and knowledge management
  • Leveraging Internet and intranet-based project management tools and resources

At last, there's a single source for all the expertise project managers need to be successful! Next time you're called upon to do the impossible—and do it yesterday—reach for the one book that can help you make it happen: Project Management by Richard Murch.
