Review

'For all involved in projects, it's a book that needs to be on your bookshelf, but better in your hand'.
Bob Saunders, Open University and Association for Project Management.

'A thorough introduction to project management. Highly recommended for use as an introductory course text'. 
Paul Walley, Lecturer in Operations Management, Warwick Business School.

'A useful introduction to the subject for students, as it indicates the complexity of the subject and its importance in a wide range of industries'. -
Prof J.H.Rogerson, Dean of Engineering, Science and Manufacturing, Cranfield University

From the Back Cover

Combining a strong academic approach with relevant practical cases, this text skilfully shows the range of issues that face project managers throughout the project cycle. Harvey Maylor considers projects as being a core business activity and approaches the subject from a strategic perspective, covering both the role of projects in the execution of organisational strategy and the application of strategic principles in projects.

Classic features:

  • Covers a wide range of project settings, from traditional large-scale industrial projects through to small-scale personal projects, in both service and manufacturing settings
  • Each chapter contains examples of ‘Project Management in Practice’ as well as case studies, discussion questions and exercises to help you check your understanding
  • This new Media Edition comes with a free CD Rom containing a 60-day evaluation version of Microsoft Office Project Professional 2003 to help familiarise you with the most commonly used project management software.

Project Management is used extensively to accompany courses on undergraduate, masters and MBA programmes, as well as for in-company training and for professionals wanting to bring themselves up-to-date with developments in the field. Extra teaching materials are available online for lecturers at http://www.booksites.net/maylor.

Dr Harvey Maylor is Lecturer in Operations and Project Management at the University of Bath School of Management. He is also a consultant and trainer in the area of Project Management, and has received funding for his research from industry, government, the European Commission, and most recently, the Project Management Institute.

Format: Paperback
The main shortcoming of most project management books is that they adopt a single methodology and fail to give the reader a context in which to apply the knowledge. They fail to answer "Why?"
Maylor's book tells you why.
It provides the reader with knowledge in context so that he/or she can make an informed judgment and more relevant decisions about how to proceed with a given project issue. If every project wasn't different Maylor's book wouldn't be so important. But projects are different, and this book is important.
For anyone wanting to really understand the real-life issues of project management this is a must read.

This book is an excellent companion to the challenging and rewarding community of project managers. The information is logically sequenced and the page layout is highly accessible. Each chapter gives a thorough overview and contains detailed references to enable further research. Harvey Maylor has successfully balanced the academic and commercial perspectives to create an interesting and inspiring study guide. I have invested many evenings learning this material and have significantly advanced my professional development. Highly recommended!

This is a very good book as an introduction to projects, planning them and going onto teams for the first time. It is a recommended text book for the MBA program. The book makes virtually no mention of MS Project and the disc was actually for 2007 not 2005 as advertised.

For those who are in this area this is a very good book. A bit advanced and contains a lot of math theory but I really enjoyed it (a bit boring and repetitive from time to time, but good tool).
Cheers.
