It pursues a broad, well-structured approach, suitable for most projects, and allows newcomers, experienced project managers and decision-makers to find valuable input that matches their specific needs. The Project Management Compass guides readers through various sections of the book; templates and checklists offer additional support. The handbook's innovative structure combines concepts from systems engineering, management psychology, and process dynamics.

This is an excellent handbook for practical project management in today's world. Prof. Dr. Heinz Schelle, Honorary Chairman of the GPM (German Project Management Association)The authors' many years in practical experience in setting up, implementing and managing projects shines through in this book. The book also reflects the current trend towards increased social competence. I am therefore pleased to recommend this book as a basis for certification in project management.
