Handbook of Project-based Management

This book is a complete guide to managing projects in the 21st century. This third edition makes a major change in focus from previous editions, shifting from production and delivering on corporate objectives to managing projects that are intended to result in strategic change. To do this, chapters on leading people through change have been added to traditional topics of managing and measuring performance and project processes. Project governance is also emphasized here, ranging from ways to develop organizational capability to managing programs and portfolios within the organization. This book is a valuable addition to existing project management literature because of its focus on the softer and more personnel-intense aspects of change.
