Chapter 2. How to Use This Book

The book is written to be read sequentially. Each chapter builds on the content of the prior chapters.

Each chapter focuses on a specific component of project management. The text explores the component’s role in the overall project management methodology. Each chapter provides a foundation for understanding the value of each component. Some companies may be more disciplined than others in the use of project management methodologies. Our goal is to illustrate that there is substantial value in each component, and that a rigorous application offers the greatest value to a company. Each chapter wraps up with a couple of questions to consider as they apply to your own organization.
