The Essentials of Project and Programme Management

Over the last fifteen years projects and programmes have become part of the everyday activities of organizations large and small. Understanding the essentials of how to plan projects, manage programmes or handle risk represents knowledge and skills that have moved beyond the purview of specialist project managers into the world of the generalists. Books in the Essentials of Projects and Programmes Series are written for project sponsors, project team members, project owners, new project managers and others who work on the periphery of projects or are drawn into project teams on a temporary basis. The Series is characterised by very readable, concise and applied books that provide an essential grounding in the context, skills and behaviours associated with successful project working.
