This is a detailed, yet practical guide to the processes, tools and techniques for implementing and managing multi-company projects. Despite the significant benefits that suppliers and customers can realize through collaboration of projects, programs or operational improvement initiatives, current literature barely touches upon project management beyond the scope of a single company. This unique volume fills this void by offering readers a practical, straight-forward description of the processes, tools, and techniques for creating and managing multi-company project organizations, emphasizing cross-company co-operation and the use of customer-supplier collaboration to maximize results. Filled with expert advice, detailed plans and explanations for implementing Multi-Company Project Management methodology, this is an essential resource for those involved in project management.
