Dennis Lock's masterly exposition of the principles and practice of project management has been pre-eminent in its field for 45 years and was among the first books to treat project management as a holistic subject. But Project Management has been kept completely up to date by regular and sensitive revisions to ensure that it remains fresh and totally relevant. Project Management explains the entire project management process in great detail, demonstrating techniques from simple charts to detailed computer applications. Everything is reinforced with clear diagrams and case examples, many new for this edition. The author has expanded discussion of topics such as supply chain management and the project management office (PMO), and there are new chapters about implementing change management projects and the role of senior managers in supporting projects. Obsolescent or less frequently used methods have been stripped out, but readers of the hardback Tutor's Edition will find that this deleted material lives on as new chapters on the accompanying downloadable resources, which have been thoroughly revised. Importantly, that disc includes comprehensive Power Point presentations with hundreds of well designed slides that tutors can use directly as a valuable resource for their lectures. Students have always commented on this book's reader-friendly style, which is free of unnecessary jargon, with clear diagrams and a construction that is logically organized, well indexed and simple to navigate. This Tenth Edition is certain to maintain the book's acclaimed status as the standard work for managers and students alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Project Management by Dennis Lock, now in its 10th Edition, is a substantial, very thorough and practical book. From the contents it becomes obvious that the author has a broad range of project experience not just in a wide variety of types of project, but also from end to end - and then some...the contents and examples are applicable to projects worldwide...' - R. Max Wideman P.Eng. FCSCE, FEIC, FICE, Fellow PMI, Project Management Wisdom, November 2013

'...As in the previous editions, the writing is always simple, clear and lucid, and the material is very logically organised. Students often comment that this book is the most readable of all the recommended books in my reading lists, and this is often the one which they choose to buy. I particularly dislike management jargon and this book is refreshingly free of it. It is a very practical book which appeals to the whole range of students I teach and I thoroughly recommend it. ' -Dr Sally Brailsford, University of Southampton, UK
