Summary

Case studies have traditionally made up a significant portion of project management education and training. The Kerzner case studies book was planned to package a broad range of case studies in one book to be used in college or professional training courses (as an ancillary to either Kerzner's book or other project management texts). The book has grown to become a very successful product on its own. For this fourth edition Kerzner will add a number of new cases covering value measurement in project management - we will retain the well recevied "super case" which covers all aspects of project management and may be used as a capstone for a course.
