New research, statistics, and real-world examples are included throughout the book. It also incorporates updated information and screenshots from several software tools. Continuing features include a chapter for each process group and a comprehensive case study to illustrate applying tools and techniques throughout the project life cycle. Each chapter includes several real-world examples and references, including opening cases and case wrap-ups, examples of what went right, what went wrong, media snapshots, best practices, and video highlights in each chapter. End of chapter materials include chapter summaries, quick quizzes, discussion questions, and exercises with case studies provided in Appendix C.
