"Teach Yourself Project Management" is a practical introduction to this essential skill. Written for all readers, it explains and illustrates the what, why, where, when and how of project management in an accessible form. Jargon-free and based on sound theory, with diagrams, useful ideas and pointers to appropriate methods and tools, it's the book for everyone who wants to develop the skills of effective project management. By the time you get to the end of this book you will understand not only what a project is but also what you need to do to successfully plan, manage and control that project. By then, if not before, you should be ready to begin, with confidence, the process of managing your own projects. The eleven chapters will tell you what is - and isn't - a project; how to choose, organise, plan, manage and monitor your project; how to assemble your project team; how to manage your money; how to solve any problems; and how to close your project. Each chapter contains understandable material that is easily related to your own experience and is full of useful ideas, pointers to appropriate methods and examples. But this isn't one of those books to be read then put away. Its aim is to enable you to develop and enhance your ability to manage projects, making it a book to revisit - to dip into, refer to or browse over - as your project management experience and skill grow.
