| The New Project Management |
In this revised version of The New Project Management, Dr. Frame gets to the heart of the current realities of managing projects in the new millennium, offering concrete strategies for getting things done in today's complex business environment.
Dr. Frame demonstrates why today's project managers must transform themselves from implementers to initiators--and why they need to get up to speed on such key issues as ensuring customer satisfaction, managing complexity, accelerating schedules, coping with empowerment, managing managers, and building team spirit. This revised edition focuses on the hottest topics in project management today, augmenting and expanding the existing covers of risk management and estimating, and includes three all-new chapters on establishing and maintaining the project support office, new techniques for scheduling--including critical chain and time-boxed scheduling--and bridging the business-technology gap when developing project requirements.
