Project managers who regard hall monitors and drill sergeants as role models need to spend some time with Essentials of Project Control. This book civilizes and humanizes the conventional view of control. No longer the bad boy in a manager's plan-organize-direct-control job description, modern control envelops us like the wise advice of a country doctor. We readily comply with the doctor's sensible prescription because it is good for us, and it works. Essentials of Project Control contains 13 articles published between 1985 and 1998 in the Project Management Journal(R) and PM Network(R). Chosen and organized by Pinto and Trailer, the two-to-ten page selections are best read consecutively. There is a thoughtful integration of ideas, and the articles flow and build nicely upon each other. This is the second book in Project Management Institute's (PMI(R)) Editors' Choice Series, a reprint series designed to supplement the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK(R)).
