Who should read this book?
The Principles Of Project Management is ideal for anyone who wants to learn enough project management to ensure their projects succeed. Although some of the examples in this book focus on projects that address technological or systems-related issues—a growing industry in need of skilled project managers!—the book is intended for anyone who needs to manage projects of any sort.
That said, this book won’t teach you to manage the construction of the next space shuttle. For very large and very complex projects, you will probably need a few extra tools—we talk about some of these advances tools in the book.
