With a focus on practicality, clarity and applicability, it uses a wide range of international case studies to demonstrate how best practice is applied in the world’s leading organisations.
Structured around the stages followed by project managers in a real project lifecycle, it is logical, easy to follow and will give your projects the best possible chance of success. It contains sections on project planning, project control; risk management; project leadership; and project teams and is an invaluable companion to the syllabi of any of the three global professional bodies in project management – the APM Group; the International Project Management Association and the Project Management Institute.

The book is organised for the reader’s convenience to follow a project life cycle. This is for two purposes:
Whilst the reader may read the book from cover to cover before embarking on a project initially, it is envisaged that each chapter can then be read and absorbed in more detail before a particular phase of the project life-cycle commences.
The author recognises that some project managers may have taken over a project part of the way through the project life-cycle. It is therefore useful to be able, for reference, to go directly to the relevant chapter(s).
The book is also organised into two main sections:
- Chapters that follow the project life-cycle (Starting your project; Defining your project; Planning your project; Executing your project).
- Chapters that are relevant or useful throughout the project life-cycle (Risk and your project; Estimating your project; project leadership; Teams and your project; the Glossary of terms).
Each chapter is also divided into subsections as follows:
- Best practice
- Things to consider
- Case study
