Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Buy the paperback new from amazon.com and get the Kindle version FREE as part of the Kindle MatchBook program!(Sorry, only works in the U.S. so far.) Note that there is a newer edition. This revision only changes Appendix A to provide instructions for using Microsoft Project 2013 vs. 2010 in the original fourth edition (plus some corrections). This book provides up-to-date information on how good project, program, and portfolio management can help you achieve organizational success. It includes over 50 samples of tools and techniques applied to one large project, and it is suitable for all majors, including business, engineering, and more. This text uses a chronological approach to project management, with detailed explanations and examples for initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing projects.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
