Reconstructing Project Management

Author: Peter W. G. Morris
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470659076
Release Date: 2013-05-28
Genre: Business & Economics

The book is designed to offer a thoughtful commentary on project management as it has been practiced and taught over the last 60 or more years, and as it may be over the next 20 to 40, drawing on examples from several industry sectors. Its thesis is that 'it all depends on how you define the subject' - that much of our present thinking about p.m. as traditionally defined is boring, sometimes conceptually weak or even flawed, and/or of limited application, whereas in reality what it can offer is exciting, challenging and potentially enormously useful. The book explores this hypothesis.

Engaged employees can be leaders who refocus your services, improve your processes, save money, and solve problems.
