In the past, an organization's technical methodologies were expected to fulfill project management process needs. However, they sometimes fell short of applying the concepts of what is known today as"professional project management." Written by one of the nation's most highly regarded project management mentors, The Complete Project Management Methodology and Toolkit delineates a "business-relevant" methodology that can be introduced across different industries and business environments.
Project management has emerged as a professional discipline and is coming into the mainstream just when it appears to be most needed in the business environment. Demonstrating that project management, in many ways, is business management; the author provides an exceptional foundation for creating a fine-tuned project management practice for every organization.
The book presents the ProjectPRISM℠ Project Management Methodology, an innovative, matrix-based approach to conducting project management that introduces relevant concepts, practices, and tools in an effective and comprehensive manner. The prescribed methods demonstrate how to initiate projects, accomplish planning, maintain responsibility, achieve progress, and manage project success from concept to completion.
