A Practical Guide for Holistic Project Management

Book Description

Project management is a multidisciplinary profession requiring not only knowledge and experience but also a lot of personal skills. A project is defined as: A temporary organisation that is created for the purpose of delivÂering one or more business products according to an agreed business case (Prince2 [1]). A project is executed on behalf of and by people. In fact it is all about people. This book is a holistic approach of project management which not only describes items such as risk management in a very practical way but also pays attention to the project impact and psychological part. Furthermore the challenges regarding outsourcing are described in order to reduce the amount of 'surprises'.
