Product Description

From the Back Cover

Project Management

The one-stop resource for project management documentation and templates for all projects

The success of any project is crucially dependent on the documents produced for it. The Practical Guide to Project Management Documentation provides a complete and reliable source of explanations and examples for every possible project-related document—from the proposal, business case, and project plan, to the status report and final post-project review.

The Practical Guide to Project Management Documentation is packed with material that slashes the time and effort expended on producing new documents from scratch. Following the processes in the Project Management Institute's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), this one-stop, full-service book also offers tips and techniques for working with documents in each project process. Documentation for several project/client scenarios is addressed, including internal and externally contracted projects. A single project—the construction of a water theme park—is used as the case study for all the document examples.

An included CD-ROM provides all the documents from the book as Microsoft Word® files. Readers can use these as a framework to develop their own project documents.

The Practical Guide to Project Management Documentation is an unmatched reference for the numerous documents essential to project managers in all industries.

HASH(0x9c717858) out of 5 stars Beginning to intermediate level March 1 2005

Format: Hardcover
Ever wonder about the outputs that have the term plan in the PMBOK are ? i.e. Project Plan, Communication management plan or Risk management plan. This book gives template which are filled by the books example project a "water amusement park" with guidance on how to write them. And other templates such Request For Proposal and Status meetings. It will definitely shed light on what these articles are to the newcomer to the PMBOK or project management. However I was not overly impressed with the contents, perhaps the authors were trying to keep it generic and not too complicated for the reader. The CD ROM is an exact duplicate of the book in MS-Word format. So don't expect any more on the CD, a disappointment to me. The book seemed to be missing on templates for budgets, time keeping, work completed and more. Not for a seasoned project manager.
