Focused on the skills needed by project managers in engineering disciplines, Project Management, Planning and Control is an established, respected and widely recommended technical project management guide.
Fully aligned with the latest Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) for both the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Association of Project Management (APM), the book is a vital study aid for those undertaking professional project management exams and a reference that practicing project managers will want to keep to hand.
Differing from the competition in both its engineering focus and its extensive coverage of planning, scheduling, budgeting, and control, critical to engineering projects, the book is also aligned to the latest BS 6079 standard for project management in construction.
