Learn to use the most up-to-date tools and methods for project management
Project management has undergone significant changes since the previous edition of this book. So, along with updates reflecting the PMBOK Guide, 5th edition, this Seventh Edition of Effective Project Management addresses some fundamental changes in the nature of a project. You will learn an approach to project management that recognizes the project environment and adapts accordingly. Rather than one-size-fits-all solutions, you will learn to think, review, analyze, and select the project management approach best suited to each individual project.
This book remains an effective text for trainers and educators as well as a practical how-to guide for project managers. Discover:
- An in-depth understanding of the PMBOK process groups
- How to scope, plan, launch, monitor, control, and close a TPM project
- Techniques for dealing with the complex and uncertain PM landscape
- A comparison of Linear, Incremental, Iterative, Adaptive, and Extreme PMLC models
- Prevention and intervention strategies for distressed projects
- Advice on organizing multiple team projects and managing a continuous process improvement program
- Ways to establish an enterprise project portfolio management process
- How to create a practical, project-based model of an enterprise

I have given this book 3 stars since I paid £32 for this textbook and for that price you’d consider the quality to be incredibly high. The pages are incredibly cheap and thin and today a page ripped just by brushing against my shirt! I’d understand something sharper but my shirt?! The pages are incredibly incredibly incredibly thin and I’m afraid more pages will rip due to its poor quality. Very disappointed, especially given its high price.
But again, the quality of the CONTENT is amazing! It’s just a very surprising quality of book considering how much the author goes on about quality and all parts of a project being perfect! You forgot about the page quality! Might be cheaper to produce but it’s absolutely useless in practice!
For me the book would read more easily if it had more real world examples mixed in with the theory, but this would probably double the size of the book.
