This dictionary contains 3,400 key terms, words, and phrases used in the day-to-day practice of project management. Along with traditional project management terms, it includes broader business terms to help seasoned managers and their successors navigate more easily the ubiquitous language of project-speak.
Presents and discusses leading ideas in the management of projects. This Handbook draws on the insights of over 40 scholars to chart the development of the subject over the last 50 years or more, and is of particular relevance to those interested in the research issues underlying project management.
This book will help project managers unravel a lot of the confusion that exists; develop a totally new perspective to see Agile and traditional plan-driven project management principles and practices in a new light as complementary to each other rather than competitive; and learn to develop an adaptive approach to blend those principles and practices together in the right proportions to fit any situation.
