This book deals with project management and presents the requirements for successful projects. We show you how to use proven methods and tools to guide your projects towards their goals, thereby significantly increasing your probability of achieving project success.
The book is written for project managers and everyone participating in projects. Throughout the book we use ‘he’ and related words purely for convenience. There are many female project managers and, therefore, ‘she’ is implied equally throughout. The book requires no special previous knowledge of project work.
Much of project literature features the technical aspects of projects such as the development of software, construction of bridges, roads, airports or oil platforms. We assert that project professionals need a broader ‘PSO’ perspective. PSO stands for People, System and Organization; PSO projects simultaneously develop a ‘system’ (for example, a physical product or object), develop people and develop the organization. Projects failing to address these objectives will find implementation difficult. Therefore it is wise for project professionals to develop a ‘PSO way of thinking’. We discuss PSO projects in this chapter.

Photo-Induced Metastability in Amorphous Semiconductors
As far as I know, the systematic study on chalcogenide glasses as semiconductors was initiated
around the 1950s by a research group headed by B.T. Kolomiets of the Ioffe Physico-Technical
Institute. During the half-century that followed, amorphous semiconductors have acquired
their own citizenship as an unchallenged, independent area of...
