Description

Randal Wilson gives managers powerful insights and tools for structuring and managing any project based on business strategy and how that project will be used. Starting with project objectives, it demonstrates how to establish processes that optimally group actions at each stage of the project lifecycle -- thereby maximizing the likelihood of success.

Mastering Project Management Strategy and Processes is part of a new series of six cutting-edge project management guides for both working practitioners and students. Like all books in this series, it offers deep practical insight into the successful design, management, and control of complex modern projects. Using real case studies and proven applications, expert authors show how multiple functions and disciplines can and must be integrated to achieve a successful outcome. Individually, these books focus on realistic, actionable solutions, not theory. Together, they provide comprehensive guidance for working project managers at all levels, as well as indispensable knowledge for anyone pursuing PMI/PMBOK certification or other accreditation in the field.
