Everyone manages projects — even if “project manager” isn’t your official title. Whether you’re a marketer or a creative director or an IT professional, project management is essential to achieving business objectives. Project management can be defined as the actual process of creating, organizing, and executing a plan in order to meet specific goals. However, project management is much greater than its definition. It’s actually a vast subject covering a wide variety of topics. Project management is the process of steering a project from the start through its lifecycle. The main objective of project management is to complete a project within the established goals of time, budget, and quality. Projects have life cycles since they aren’t intended to last forever. A project management life cycle starts when the project is initiated and ends when the project is either completed or terminated in one way or another. Process-based project management allows project managers to create, manage, and improve projects that align with the vision, mission, and core values of a business. All project activities and objectives are designed in such a way that they contribute towards achieving the most important organizational objectives. Process-based project management includes six stages: - Defining the processes - Identifying process indicators - Measuring performance - Adjusting objectives - Planning improvements - Implementing improvements Ideal project management can increase organizational efficiencies, boost team performance, and impact the bottom line. However, we realize not everyone is a project manager by trade. Although project management is common in all aspects of business, there are many complex concepts and terminologies OUTLINED in this BOOK that may help you take your project managing career to the next level.

The Oxford Handbook of Project Management presents and discusses leading ideas in the management of projects. Positioning project management as a domain much broader and more strategic than simply 'execution management', this Handbook draws on the insights of over 40 scholars to chart the development of the subject over the last 50 years or more as an area of increasing practical and academic interest. It suggests we could be entering an emerging 'third wave' of analysis and interpretation following its early technical and operational beginnings and the subsequent shift to a focus on projects and their management. Topics dealt with include: the historical evolution of the subject; its theoretical base; professionalism; business and societal context; strategy; organization; governance; innovation; overruns; risk; information management; procurement; relationships and trust; knowledge management; practice and teams. This handbook is of particular relevance to those interested in the research issues underlying project management.

Dennis Lock's masterly exposition of the principles and practice of project management has been pre-eminent in its field for 45 years and was among the first books to treat project management as a holistic subject. But Project Management has been kept completely up to date by regular and sensitive revisions to ensure that it remains fresh and totally relevant. Project Management explains the entire project management process in great detail, demonstrating techniques from simple charts to detailed computer applications. Everything is reinforced with clear diagrams and case examples, many new for this edition. The author has expanded discussion of topics such as supply chain management and the project management office (PMO), and there are new chapters about implementing change management projects and the role of senior managers in supporting projects. Obsolescent or less frequently used methods have been stripped out, but readers of the hardback Tutor’s Edition will find that this deleted material lives on as new chapters on the accompanying CD-ROM, which has itself also been thoroughly revised. Importantly, that disc includes comprehensive Power Point presentations with hundreds of well designed slides that tutors can use directly as a valuable resource for their lectures. Students have always commented on this book’s reader-friendly style, which is free of unnecessary jargon, with clear diagrams and a construction that is logically organized, well indexed and simple to navigate. This Tenth Edition is certain to maintain the book's acclaimed status as the standard work for managers and students alike.
