From the Back Cover:

All You Need to Know to Manage Any Project’s “Triple Constraint”: Time, Cost, and Quality

Every project manager faces the “triple constraint” of time, cost, and quality: Changing one impacts the others, often in unexpected and undesirable ways. This book shows you how to manage all three effectively, and handle the key tradeoffs required for successful delivery.

Seasoned project manager and professor Randal Wilson presents focused coverage of every time, cost, and quality technique project managers should master. Teaching through relevant examples, Wilson identifies personal and business obstacles that make the triple constraint so difficult to manage, and helps you overcome them.

You’ll learn how to plan, schedule, and budget projects with the triple constraint in mind, and then control all three factors in tandem as you move toward completion. Drawing on extensive experience, Wilson illuminates subtle interactions among them, helping you avoid problems and maximize the value of your finished project.

If you’re a working project manager or student who wants to balance time, cost, and quality more effectively, this guide brings together all the knowledge, experience, and insights you’ll need.

· Sharpen your focus on managing time, cost, and quality throughout your project
· Proactively clarify deliverables and customer quality expectations
· Master seven core processes for managing schedules effectively
· Use work activity details to derive trustworthy cost estimates
· Establish cost management plans you can use throughout your project
· Apply proven tools for conducting quality assurance and enforcing quality control
· Ensure effective change control consistent with time, cost, and quality constraints

Master all the modern project strategy and process definition techniques you need, in one focused tutorial!

Expert project manager and noted instructor Randal Wilson shows how to manage resources throughout your project lifecycle to ensure completion on schedule, on budget, and with high quality. He explains how time, cost, and quality interrelate; how changing one of these factors affects the others; and how to manage the difficult tradeoffs associated with this “triple constraint.”

Wilson introduces proven project time management techniques for up-front scheduling, activity requirements and sequencing, resource estimating, duration analyses, and more. Next, he addresses project cost management, from planning and budgeting through ongoing cost control. He then turns to quality management, addressing the full project lifecycle, from planning through control--including crucial processes for making changes efficiently, with minimum disruption.

Whatever your PM role, this tutorial will help you manage the “triple constraint” at the heart of every project, and deliver the superior results your organization expects.
