ITEM#: 14506524

Focused on the skills you need as a project manager in an engineering or technical context, Project Management, Planning and Control is an established and widely recommended project management guide.

This concise, no nonsense reference takes you through the life of a major project, covering the principles and techniques you need to successfully manage an engineering project from start to finish. Supporting its engineering focus, a key strength of the book is its clear and detailed coverage of planning, scheduling and control aspects, which can pose particular challenges in engineering environments.

Ideal for those studying for Project Management Professional (PMP) qualifications, the book is aligned with the latest Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) for both the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Association of Project Management (APM), and includes questions and answers to help you test your understanding. It is also updated to match the latest BS 6079 standard for project management in construction.

With additions including new chapters on Agile project management and project governance, as well as more real-life examples and updated software references, this respected handbook by APM honorary fellow and former APM exam assessor Albert Lester will lead you through the theory and techniques to project management success.

  • Focused on the needs and challenges of project managers in engineering, manufacturing and construction, unlike the numerous generic business and soft-skills focused project management texts on the market
  • Closely aligned to the content of the APM and PMI ‘bodies of knowledge’, making it an ideal resource for professional study and exam preparation
  • Concise and technical yet easy to apply, focusing on the what and how of project management to provide you with a practical toolkit of techniques and approaches to suit the job in hand
  • Structured according to the logical sequence of a major project, with a strong focus on planning, scheduling, budgeting, and control-critical elements in the management of engineering projects
  • Includes project management questions and answers, compiled by a former APM exam assessor, to help you test your knowledge and prepare for professional exams
  • New to this edition: new chapters on Agile project management and project governance, update of software-related sections to feature the latest programs and addition of more real-life engineering examples to illustrate the techniques in practice
