When Advanced Project Management first appeared it quickly acquired a reputation for excellence on both sides of the Atlantic as a book that successfully bridges the gap between introductory texts on project management and specialist works on professional practice. Its aim is twofold: to provide a guide for managers, engineers, accountants and others involved in project work, and a reference for advanced students of project and construction management. This fourth edition of the book has been heavily revised, with substantial material to reflect the changes in project management. The following topics are either new to the book or have been given greater emphasis: ¢ Project definition and appraisal ¢ Procurement and the supply chain ¢ Concurrent engineering ¢ Cost and management accounting ¢ Quality management ¢ More detailed explanations of critical path analysis, now predominantly using the precedence system ¢ Increased treatment of resource scheduling ¢ Planning with multiple calendars ¢ Planning within fixed time constraints, using crashing and fast-tracking methods ¢ Standard networks, modules and templates ¢ Risk management.
The Essentials of Project Management is a primer distilled from Dennis Lock's comprehensive, successful and encyclopedic textbook, Project Management, (now in its Tenth Edition). It provides a concise, straightforward account of the principles and techniques of project management, designed to meet the needs of the business manager or student. Using examples and illustrations, the author introduces the key project management procedures and explains clearly how and when to use them.The text for the new edition has been completely restructured and largely rewritten, so that the sequence now follows even more closely the life-cycle of a typical project from its earliest definition to final close-out.
A key feature of the role of managers is to develop the people who make up their team. This book explains the development process and contextualises it against the overall aims, strategies and business plans of the organisation. It explores the role of the line manager in creating development opportunities and provides examples to show how managers can use coaching, mentoring, delegation and performance management to help their team develop skills and learn to work together effectively.
