Project Management, Planning and Control, now in its sixth edition, is an established, respected and widely recommended technical project management guide.
The book covers the entire spectrum of project management, from the initial project definition, business case, and organizational structuring through investment, risk and change management, reporting, and close-out. Along the way, topics of health and safety, negotiation, conflict management, and cost control are examined as well. These are just a few of the subjects addressed in this thorough, rigorous treatment of project management.
Fully aligned with the latest Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) for both the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Association of Project Management (APM), the book is a vital study aid for those taking professional project management exams and a reference that practicing project managers will want to keep on hand.
The book is also aligned to the latest BS 6079 standard for project management in construction, setting it apart from the competition in both its engineering focus and its extensive coverage of planning, scheduling, budgeting, and control critical to engineering projects.
