Project management can seem like an impossible task—things rarely go as planned. To manage a project, you need insight into human behavior, knowledge of organizational issues, and skill with quantitative methods. Project Management: A Managerial Approach, Seventh Edition helps you not only acquire these basic skills but prepares you to deal with the unexpected—which, as every good project manager knows, is always to be expected.
In this Seventh Edition of a must-read text, authors Jack Meredith and Samuel J. Mantel, Jr., draw from their own extensive experience in operations management to show you how to select, initiate, operate, and control all types of projects. They familiarize you with:
Project Initiation, including strategic management, negotiation, and conflict management
Project Planning, from budgeting and cost estimating to scheduling and resource allocation
Project Execution, as you monitor and control your project, conduct audits, and understand how to terminate the project properly
Most of all, they prepare you for dealing with the numerous organizational, interpersonal, economic, and technical glitches that can create crises in the life cycle of every project.
With references to the major areas of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) as defined by the PMI, this new edition keeps you current on such topics as Six-Sigma, ethics, charting and partnering, the role of the project management office, SAP, and Stage Gates. A free trial edition of Crystal Ball gives you hands-on experience with a key project management tool and the companion site (www.wiley.com/college/meredith) offers powerful resources for instructors and students. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It talks too much about obvious common sense.
It gets better when it covers CPM/PERT. Read more
