To the newcomer PRINCE2 can represent a bewildering array of jargon. Terms like 'integrated elements', 'principles', 'themes', 'processes' and 'management and specialist products' can overwhelm course delegates or self-studiers on first exposure. Understanding what these terms mean in simple language and, even more important, how all these elements of PRINCE2 fit together, is the major hurdle that needs to be overcome if the many benefits of the method are to be unlocked. IAN LAWTON is a former chartered accountant, sales executive, business consultant and IT project manager. Since 2008 he has trained more than 2000 delegates on PRINCE2 courses. He has worked for some of the market leaders in training provision such as Parity and QA, and understands how to make the method accessible to newcomers.

Understanding Project Management takes a refreshingly real-world approach to the effective planning and execution of a project, breaking it down into a series of practical processes that readers can apply to any industry. In clear, accessible language, Dave C. Barrett discusses the most critical concepts for each phase of a project and brings the process to life by applying it to an ongoing case study of a fictional company that is launching a new product. Readers will follow this moderately complex project from inception to completion and have the opportunity to explore the project manager’s thoughts and actions throughout the execution of the plan. The case study is accompanied by numerous sample project documents that further illustrate best practices in a real-life context. This practical guide reinforces the importance of managing the scope, quality, schedule, and budget of a project and covers the less tangible factors that can lead to a project’s success. Offering concrete strategies, tools, and prepared templates for practical application, the book is an ideal resource for aspiring project managers in a classroom setting and junior to intermediate project management professionals.
