A must-read for any project management professional or student.

Projects are the life blood of any organization. Revised to reflect the latest changes to A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and the Project Management Professional Exam®, the fourth edition of The AMA Handbook of Project Management provides readers with a clear overview of a complex discipline. Covering everything from individual projects to programs and strategic alignment, it addresses:

● Project initiation and planning

● Communication and interpersonal skills

● Scheduling, budgeting and meeting business objectives

● Managing political and resource issues

● Implementing a PMO

● Measuring value and competencies.

The book compiles essays and advice from the field's top professionals and features new chapters on stakeholder management, agile project management, program management, project governance, knowledge management, and more. Updated with fresh examples, case studies and solutions to specific project management dilemmas, it remains an essential reference to the critical concepts and theories all project managers must master.
