The book covers the principles and tools of project management. All the 'hard' topics which may appear in the APMP examination are explained and worked through in practical examples. Real-life case studies show how the theory can be adapted to work 'in the field'. This approach means that techniques can be fully understood and appreciated. Useful summaries clarify the use of all the techniques used to manage a project.
The advantages of using network analysis and earned value analysis when planning a project are explained. The latest project management systems that use critical path methods are described and a detailed examination of one widely used system illustrates the general characteristics of modern project planning software. Two well-known computer programs are described in detail.
