Core Concepts of Project Management


This book addresses project management in the context of general project management. An introductory chapter discusses project features in general. Part I of the book focuses on the important human element in project management. Part II discusses two processes involved in the initial project definition stage, as well as covering estimation. Part III involves planning, and also deals with project risk and implementation.
A feature of the book is an effort to tie content to that of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Each chapter includes reference to how each chapter relates to the PMBOK structure and relationship to the 2020 PMP Exam Outline.
