Project Management is a fast-growing and increasingly professionalised' discipline with record numbers of practitioners now gaining the PRINCE qualification. The formal tools and techniques of project management are being applied in an ever-wider range of industries and organisations. As a mainstream skill, critical to business success, and under closer scrutiny for the benefits it delivers, it's important the students of today and practitioners of tomorrow can rely on a comprehensive and contemporary text to support their learning. Drawing on the author's 20 years of teaching, research and consulting experience, Harvey Maylor's latest edition of Project Management delivers this in style.
