The Wiley Advantage

  • A Managerial Approach: The authors address project management from the perspective of what the project manager will encounter, both chronologically during the “life cycle” of the project as well as practically, in the sense of what the project manager needs to know and why.
  • The Project Life Cycle remains the primary organizational guideline of the book – Part I: Project Initiation, Part II: Project Planning, Project III: Project Execution.
  • Crystal Ball Software: A registration code is packaged with the text, giving students access to a free 140-day trial edition of Crystal Ball
  • Change Management: The task of the project manager to handle change is introduced throughout the text with references to the organizational, interpersonal, economic, and technical glitches that create crises in the life cycle of every project.
