This volume enables managers to review, extend and sharpen their project management skills, promoting individual development, personal and organizational effectiveness. Commercial and competitive pressures place ever greater demands on the project manger (often not officially recognized as such), and their team. Each project presents its own challenges - size, technical complexity, risk, timescale - and professional management skills of the highest order are needed to ensure success. To be fully effective, project managers need to take decisions from a business perspective, and know how to identify and harness all the relevant skills required for the job. The book includes a range of practical features throughout, such as: key questions, action checklists; activities; guides to best practice; key learning points; and key management concepts.
The "Masters in Management" series titles are aimed at change makers, general managers, team leaders and implementers, and to senior-level managers involved in one or more of the following: strategic decision-making; deciding and implementing decisions; providing internal or external consultancy; and a management development programme (for example, diploma, MBA or vocational qualification).
