Part I Understanding the Changes and Trends in Projects
Part II Defining and Setting up Successful Project Plans
Part III Managing the Project
Part IV Selecting and Using Modern Project Management Methods and Tools
Part V Dealing with Project Change, Ending a Project, and What to Do Next

Each chapter contains guidelines and steps to take next. Modern, historical, and hypothetical examples make the book easy to use and understand.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best project management books for introducing employees to modern project management in an interesting way. Most project management books are ver dry and lack realistic examples. Thus, it is difficult to motivate people to read and use such materials. This is a very practical, down to earth book that has many guidelines that you can use immediately as you read the book. Some of the strengths of the book are: 1) best description of matrix management; 2) use of collaborative tools in managing projects; 3) how to deal with multiple projects; 4) how to share resources across several projects; 5) how to deal with risk in projects. The authors have developed a very creative and useful approach in dealing with project risk that associates project risk with unresolved issues. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent guide to the project management profession. It is, of course, a general book, but it provides a very good understanding of this practice for beginners or those who would like to get an overview of project management. Yet, it gives enough detail to make itself an extraordinary reference book for professionals of all interest levels. It contains very striking case studies of both successful and unsuccessful projects. It is also a good text book.

Format: Paperback
This book is very good for all types of projects. It covers setting up a project, organizing the work, managing a project, handling several projects at once, dealing with project issues and crises, using modern technology such as groupware and the Internet. The approach of establishing an issues data base and relating issues to specific tasks in a project is unique. It is very useful.

Project management for the 21st century is one of the most usable, easy to read, and complete project management books. There are good examples. Techniques are modern--better than that available in other books. This books stresses working together, sharing information, and dealing with resources that are spread among various projects. Very good reference.
