Welcome to the new edition of Project Management: Integrating Strategy, Operations and Change. This re-worked and fully updated text explores not only the principles, processes and practice of project management, but also the myriad of challenges and opportunities created in trying to balance both strategic initiatives and operational realities within organizations.
Project Management: Integrating Strategy, Operations and Change continues the learning journey for us all in how we plan and manage our projects: be they big or small, easy or complex, single or multiple, single site or co-location.
This new edition aligns with the fifth edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and with industry requirements, international best practice, educational curriculums and qualifications, as well as incorporating aspects of other well-known international project management methodologies. It examines both project theory and practice across a variety of contexts, industry sectors and qualification levels. It has been designed and written around a single, fundamental goal-to enable and support the reader's learning as the reader continues to build, revise and integrate their own unique project management body of knowledge that combines personal research, trial and error and lessons learned.
