A guide to the human factors in project management: knowledge, learning, and maturity The Wiley Guides to the Management of Projects address critical, need-to-know information that will help professionals successfully manage projects in most businesses and help students learn the best practices of the industry. They contain not only well-known and widely used basic project management practices but also the newest and most cutting-edge concepts in the broader theory and practice of managing projects. This third volume in the series covers a range of organizational and people-based topics that are occupying the project management world today. The essence of project management represents a "people" challenge-the ability to appreciate and effectively employ the competencies of all those who are associated with the project development and delivery process. This book explains how you can more successfully manage a project from inception through delivery by learning how to handle critical issues around structure, teams, leadership, power and negotiation, and the whole area of competencies. The expert contributors also include chapters on global project management knowledge and standards, the role of project management associations around the world, project management maturity models, and other key topics.

Much of project management writing addresses only the basics of time, cost, and scope management (or people and organizational issues) and fails to address the day-to-day nuances that become so important in practice. The reality is that there is far more than this to managing projects successfully. The Wiley Guides to Project Management contain not only well-known and wisely used basic project management practices but also new, cutting-edge concepts in the broader theory and practice of managing projects. The series will consist of edited guides, each devoted to a sub-topicarea under the umbrella of Project Management. The first four volumeswill cover: Project, Program, and Portfolio Management; Project Control; Organization and Project Management Competencies; and Project Technology Management, Supply Chain, and Procurement. Other books will be added as needed. Each volume will be edited by Peter W.G. Morris, & Jeffrey K. Pinto and will contain 300 to 400 pages, with 12 to 15 contributions drawn from both academia and industry. The books will address critical, need-to-knowinformation that will help professionals successfully manage projects in most businesses and help students learn the best practices of the industry. The first book in this series, Project, Program, and Portfolio Management is based on the "meta" level of management, understanding and exploiting strategic management of projects, portfolios, and program management, stakeholders, and PFI.

A complete guide to managing technical issues and procuring third-party resources The Wiley Guides to the Management of Projects address critical, need-to-know information that will help professionals successfully manage projects in most businesses and help students learn the best practices of the industry. They contain not only well-known and widely used basic project management practices but also the newest and most cutting-edge concepts in the broader theory and practice of managing projects. This fourth volume in the series offers expert guidance on the supply chain and delivery cycle of the project, as well as the technology management issues that are involved such as modeling, design, and verification. Technology within the context of the management of projects involves not so much actually doing the "technical" elements of the project as managing the processes and practices by which projects are transformed from concepts into actual entities-and doing this effectively within the time, cost, strategic, and other constraints on the project. The contributors to this volume, among the most recognized international leaders in the field, guide you through the key life-cycle issues that define the project, ensure its viability, manage requirements, and track changes-highlighting the key steps along the way in transforming and realizing the technical definition of the project.

Creating the Project Office is written for managers who are searching for ways to transform their organizations into more effective and efficient project-based workplaces. As this important book reveals, there is no more effective way to make that change than to create a project office tailored to the needs of the organization. While a project office model leads to better products from projects, it is also a vehicle for generating overall organizational change -- by transforming the organization from function-based to project-based. This model incorporates projects into the very fabric of the organizational strategy and revitalizes organizations, creates competitive advantage, and increases shareholder value.
