About the Book: Managing Projects: A Team-Based Approach

Students today are likely to be assigned to project teams or to be project managers almost immediately in their first job. Managing Projects: A Team-Based Approach was written for a wide range of stakeholders, including project managers, project team members, support personnel, functional mangers who provide resources for projects, project customers (and customer representatives), project sponsors, project subcontractors, and anyone who plays a role in the project delivery process. The need for project management is on the rise as product life cycles compress, demand for IT systems increases, and business takes on an increasingly global character. This book adds to the project management knowledge base in a way that fills an unmet need-it shows how teams can apply many of the standard project management tools, as well as several tools that are relatively new to the field. Managing Projects: A Team-Based Approach offers the academic rigor found in most textbooks along with the practical attributes often found more often in trade/professional publications.


A process context demonstrates how the various tools fit together as part of a cohesive project management process, demonstrating the iterative nature of project planning and execution.

A team orientation shows how project management concepts and tools work in team settings. This book includes tools not found, as a comprehensive set, in any other project management book.

The concept of ""active learning"" is introduced in and employed throughout the textbook.

Balanced tool set. The most effective project managers are those who know when they need to be analytical and when a more creative approach is warranted-this text presents ideas for making these distinctions and tools for use in each type of situation.

Focus on pedagogy. This book was developed around teaching and learning. The material is presented in a way that will both enhance an instructors ability to teach from the book, and support the solo learner.

Includes illustrations of state-of-the-art technology tools such as MSProject and MindManager.
