The Project Management Tool Kit

This book is a collection of techniques to manage project tasks of all sorts--from presentations to metrics, managing change to managing risk. It defines each task in easy-to-understand language, explains when and why it would be used in managing a project, and provides concrete steps showing how the task can be accomplished. This book refers to numerous other tools, particularly types of charts, graphical software programs, and the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) methodology for project management, but may not define them completely. This book is a nice quick-start or refresher for those who manage projects from time to time, but it may prompt you to consult with other materials to thoroughly explain particular processes.

This book can be found in HECSA Library:
