TitleProject management : achieving competitive advantage
Author Jeffrey K. Pinto
Imprint Boston : Pearson, c2013
Edition 3rd ed., Global ed.
Descript 528 p. : ill. ; 28 cm


The fundamentals of project management with a wide assortment of business applications. Project Management takes a decision-making, business-oriented approach to the management of projects, which is reinforced throughout the text with current examples of project management in action. And because understanding project management is central to operations in various industries, this text also addresses project management within the context of a variety of successful organizations, whether publicly held, private, or not-for-profit. Each chapter contains one or more Project Profiles that highlight current examples of project management in action. Some of the profiles reflect significant achievements while others detail famous (and not-so-famous) examples of project failures. Because these examples cover a wide range of industries (IT projects, construction, new product development, etc.), there should be at least one profile per chapter that is meaningful to the class focus. -- From publisher's web site
