Описание: A project manager must not only be permanently aware of all relevant tools, techniques and processes he may need for his work, but, moreover, he has to be able to master unexpected, new and critical situations. On top of that, he should have fun in managing a project and own the creativity he needs to steer projects and bring them to a good end. In this book, experienced project managers tell about exciting tasks in different countries, the personal approach to handle a task, about daily life as a project manager and about what they learned during their work in projects. That way, readers experience the fascination and specific features of a project manager's career, including the ability to always be prepared for new challenges. This book will give project managers and project staff members, as well as those who are interested in a project manager?s work, an idea of how personal commitment and professional, cultural and social capabilities may perfectly act together in this unique profession.
Описание: The ever expanding market need for information on how to apply project management principles and the PMBOK contents to day-to-day business situations has been met by our case studies book by Harold Kerzner. That book was a spin-off from and ancillary to his best selling text but has gained a life of its own beyond adopters of that textbook.
Описание: Case studies have traditionally made up a significant portion of project management education and training. The Kerzner case studies book was planned to package a broad range of case studies in one book to be used in college or professional training courses (as an ancillary to either Kerzner's book or other project management texts. The book has grown to become a very successful product on its own. For this third edition we will added a number of new cases covering construction and international project management plus a new "super case" which covers all asapects of project management and may be used as a capstone for a course. The total number of cases for this edition will now exceed 100.

Описание: Learn how project management can make a company sink or soar Project Management Case Studies presents a compilation of illustrative case studies showcasing both exceptional and poorly-implemented project management techniques.
Описание: The growing complexity of projects today, as well as the uncertainty inherent in innovative projects, is making obsolete traditional project management practices and procedures, which are based on the notion that much about a project is known at its start. The current high level of change and complexity confronting organizational leaders and managers requires a new approach to projects so they can be managed flexibly to embrace and exploit change. What once used to be considered extreme uncertainty is now the norm, and managing planned projects is being replaced by managing projects as they evolve. Successfully managing projects in extreme situations, such as polar and military expeditions, shows how to manage successfully projects in today’s turbulent environment. Executed under the harshest and most unpredictable conditions, these projects are great sources for learning about how to manage unexpected and unforeseen situations as they occur. This book presents multiple case studies of managing extreme events as they happened during polar, mountain climbing, military, and rescue expeditions. A boat accident in the Artic is a lesson on how an effective project manager must be ambidextrous: on one hand able to follow plans and on the other hand able to abandon those plans when disaster strikes and improvise new ones in response. Polar expeditions also illustrate how a team can use "weak links" to go beyond its usual information network to acquire strategic information. Fire and rescues operations illustrate how one team member’s knowledge can be transferred to the entire team. Military operations provide case material on how teams coordinate and make use of both individual and collective competencies. This groundbreaking work pushes the definitions of a project and project management to reveal new insight that benefits researchers, academics, and the practitioners managing projects in today’s challenging and uncertain times.
Описание: Space activities give rise to complex projects calling for contributions from varied communities of knowledge and practical expertise. With their cultures and specialized languages, they define separate information fields that generate problems for communication and collaboration, especially in the early phases of projects вЂ“ project definition, systems requirements, engineering, design. During these phases technical objects are progressively built up by negotiating the meanings of terminologies, formulas, drawings and other representations intended to satisfy the many agreed requirements, mechanical, electrical, thermal, etc. Organizational semiotics offers a framework for understanding the processes that this project work entails, in particular the interaction between individuals and groups and between human and technology.The 8th session of the annual Organizational Semiotics Workshop held in June 2005 in Toulouse вЂ“ the French capital of aeronautics and space вЂ“ tested ideas from Organizational Semiotics against two issues from space projects on two illustrative cases provided by the Centre National dвЂ™Etudes Spatiales (CNES) вЂ“ the government agency responsible for shaping and implementing FranceвЂ™s space policy in Europe вЂ“ through its Technical Competency Centre in Management (CCT MAN): - The management of complex, highly innovative and multidisciplinary projects during their early volatile phases.- The management of risks faced by such projects that may run far into the future and beyond human intervention.The twelve chapters of the book are the revised contributions of the workshop on these issues along with general themes of Organizational Semiotics.
