This title was first published in 2000: Dennis Lock's masterly exposition of the principles and practice of project management has been pre-eminent in its field for four decades. It was among the very few early books to treat project management holistically, rather than as a collection of separate techniques. It thus explains the entire project management process in great detail, demonstrating techniques ranging from the simplest of charts to sophisticated computer applications. Everything is reinforced throughout with case examples and diagrams. The text has been completely restructured and largely rewritten for this ninth edition, so that the sequence now follows even more closely the life-cycle of a typical project from its earliest definition to final close-out. Case examples and diagrams have all been reviewed, updated, augmented or replaced. Expansion from 25 to 30 chapters has allowed greater emphasis to be given to stakeholders' perceptions of success, the organization and management of business change projects, people's roles in project management and the wider business contexts in which project management has been adopted. Tutor's Edition The Tutor's Edition includes a hardback edition of the text along with a series of 25 Powerpoint presentations. Each one is tied into the contents of the related chapters. The presentations have been developed by the author during a lifetime of teaching and training project management techniques. The 660 Powerpoint slides, which include animation and sound, represent an extraordinary resource for any lecturers or presenters working in the field of project management.
