Project Management introduces business and management students to project-based working as a means to tackle projects successfully in a unique and accessible way.
Not only in business circles, but also in the field of education, increasingly more activities are performed using a project-based approach. Consider, for example, comprehensive study assignments, internal projects and projects during work placements and the final stages of a degree. This book's line of approach is practice-oriented. Based on assignments, groups of two to three students work on a project plan and an executive summary. Students can also opt for a ‘real’ assignment for a company or for one of the cases of the accompanying website.
Added to this fifth edition are examples and illustrations, new sections about various subjects and a chapter about the flexible project approach Scrum.
