In previous editions, this book has established itself as the definitive guide to effective project management.

Wysocki and a new coauthor, Rudd McGary, this book covers traditional methods of project management as well as adaptive and extreme approaches.

Effective Project Management is packed with thought-provoking discussion questions related to the chapter materials and case study as well as an abundance of exercises.
