What is included with this book?
Mastering Project Time Management, Cost Control, and Quality Management gives managers powerful insights and tools for addressing the "Triple Constraints" that define virtually every project: time, cost, and quality.
This book is part of a new series of seven cutting-edge project management guides for both working practitioners and students. Like all books in this series, it offers deep practical insight into the successful design, management, and control of complex modern projects. Using real case studies and proven applications, expert authors show how multiple functions and disciplines can and must be integrated to achieve a successful outcome.
Individually, these books focus on realistic, actionable solutions, not theory. Together, they provide comprehensive guidance for working project managers at all levels, including highly-complex enterprise environments. These books also provide indispensable knowledge for anyone pursuing PMI/PMBOK or PRINCE2 certification, or other accreditation in the field.
