Publisher's Summary

A concise introductory guide to project management. This guide provides a simple method for managing small to medium-sized projects. 

Let's first define what a project is. We start with a formal definition. “A project is a unique event, with a defined start and end. It is a temporary structure, created to achieve some change - a new or changed product, a specific value, a different way of doing something or an objective”. Even if you've done something very similar before, something about each project will be unique - the location, the resources used, the time, the cost - something will make the event unique. 

A project is work that is planned to bring about change in a structured and effective way: Projects have different sizes, resource needs, budgets, and risks. They go from planning a holiday, constructing a garden shed, moving staff from one office to another, teaching people how to use a new piece of equipment or software, or building a ship, to rolling out a new procedure for form-filling. All of these need the same basic structure, tailored to the size of the project.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
