Format: Paperback
David and Lew and achieved a great deal in project management. Now, they are practicing what they preach. This book, much like a Work Breakdown Structure, is a thoughtful, logical (and very readable) decomposition of the work to be done in establishing and maintaining individual projects or a vast project management enterprise.
The Best Feature? The annotated bibliographies are peerless in terms of adding value and pointing toward other quality project management information.
Good detail from the work package to the program level.

Finally, the PM profession has a follow-on to Linn Stuckenbruck's "The Implementation Of Project Management: The Professional's Handbook." Lew and Dave have packaged the esentials of the PM profession in one excellent book. The only thing lacking would be some templates for examples. I now have a replacement text, to accompany the "Guide to the PMBOK," for the PM courses I teach. This book is where the PM profession is going.

What is Project Management? How is it structured? How does it contribute to business results?
This book has the best vision about Project Management that I know.
When writting about "Organizational Design", "Strategic Context", "Project Comunication", and a lot of others important issues in Project Management, the authors always bring a inovative vision and a clear and exact model. It has the information you really need to know to understand and implement a good project management practice.
If you are preparing for the PMP Certification, this is a must read: as PMP question measures not only knowledge but also experience, this book show you the vision of an experienced project manager about what really matters running a project.
This is an excellent text book for PM courses. And also a valuable PMP preparation text, if you would like to go beyond de "question-and-answer" style book.

This book was for class I was taking and thought it would be more useful but it is hard to read - its a small book and would be better if it were larger - hard to keep it open
