    The third edition of this successful textbook represents a major development in content, approach and pedagogy. Combining a strong academic approach with relevant practical cases, the text skillfully shows the range of issues that face project managers through the logic of the 4-D project cycle.



    Project Management is used extensively to accompany courses on undergraduate, masters and MBA programmes, as well as for in-company training and for professionals wanting to bring themselves up-to-date with developments in the field.
