roject management tools and techniques are an essential and integral part of all disciplines and industries. Project Management provides readers from different backgrounds with an essential toolkit to develop their knowledge, starting from the first principles progressing to a more complex understanding, with the help of an assortment of case studies, practical examples and numerical worked examples.

Project Management is a user friendly guide to facilitate the learning of students regardless, of their mode of study. In addition, practitioners and independent learners who are seeking to enhance their knowledge base and develop their project management skills will benefit from the practical approach adopted in this textbook; simplifying some of the challenging concepts and numerical aspects.

This textbook comprises 12 chapters covering the key areas in the context of managing projects, providing a comprehensive overview of key project management skills and techniques including:
  • An exploration of soft and hard skills via theoretical explanation and real life cases studies;
  • Discussion of leadership theories and the challenges of managing multi-disciplinary project teams within varied organisational contexts, including virtual teams.
  • Thorough analysis and explanation of numerical techniques required for project financial appraisal, project cost estimating, budgeting, time scheduling (CPM), crashing and project performance measurement (EVA);
  • Recognition of varied project success criteria and the pros and cons of the traditional project man¬agement methodology versus more contemporary approaches such as agile methodologies.
