easily read and understood introduction to Project Managment,
This review is from: Project Management (Self-development) (Paperback)
Amongst many project management books this one shines out like a beacon for its simple, well-structured presentation of the fundamentals of Project Management. It is particularly useful for those just turning to Project Management and contains some very useful practical exercises and self-assessments. It is a good hand/work-book for those getting involved in projects for the first time - or taking on their first project management or supervisory role.
And, it all links with a Video Arts video on the subject.
The lay-out is excellent, clear concise headings, good illustrations, charts, diagrams. There are also some really good CheckLists at key points throughout the book. Mercifully low in all but essential jargon - and with a nice Glossary (albeit part-way through the book!) it aids the learning process, helps build knowledge, makes initial understanding of the subject easy to develop.
The Design of the book is excellent - attractive cover, front and back flaps and a durable "hard-soft-back" cover that users will find useful as they use this as a workbook/support tool through their involvement in projects and project management.
The author seems competent and confident in his delivery style and key learning points are re-inforced throughout a thoroughly excellently presented 96 pages.
