Product description


'This book has 63 chapters that average at about 13 pages per chapter. Each chapter has an introduction, some discussion and a conclusion, and is written by a current practitioner. I think that rather than being read from cover to cover, this book should be treated more like an encyclopedia - it could be the first place you would go to in order to research a topic, to be followed up in more detail if need be. In this application, the book does a good job across a wide range of subjects... it should be borne in mind that for this price you are getting at least 3 times the content of a more standard-sized book. This would be a good book to have on the shelves of a university, an organisational PMO, or a PM practitioner looking to develop their knowledge of the people aspects of PM.' Brilliant Baselines 'A search on Amazon of the term "project management" turns up nearly 10,000 hits. However, adding the term "people" reduces that figure to just 1,300. Gower's Handbook of People in Project Management goes some way to redress this imbalance by presenting a compilation of 60 pieces by more than 50 authors on the issue. The short chapters provide more than enough information to allow the main ideas to be picked up and put into practice ... The editors have selected a wide group of contributors and successfully merged their work into an easily read, comprehensive piece of work.' Professional Manager '...a phenomenal volume that covers off every facet of project management that you could ever imagine.' The Papercut Project Manager
