Although it might be considered difficult to improve on a book that has already won the highest honor in its field—PMI’s 2007 Literature Award—the third edition of this classic handbook provides an updated set of principles and processes for those managers and professionals who want to expand their understanding of the theory and practice of project management.
There is a deluge of books being published about project management. Unfortunately, all too many of these books have taken information from existing books and cast them in a slightly different light, resulting in minor contributions to the growing book literature. This handbook by Paul Dinsmore and Jeannette Cabanis-Brewin is a refreshing change that presents the best state-of-the-art literature in the theory and process of project management.
The material in the book comes from authors who are notable contributors in the project management community, ranging from academics and practitioners who contend with teaching and managing stakeholders in the project management field.
This handbook should be readily available to anyone who works in the management of projects and deals with tactical and strategic change in contemporary organizations.
