by Eric Verzuh



Publisher: Wiley; 1 edition (February 3, 2003)





Product Description



"Unlike most project management books, which focus solely on the nuts and bolts of managing single projects, The Portable MBA in Project Management focuses on the strategy, organization, and processes at work in the three tiers of a successful project-driven organization每the project, the program, and the enterprise. By integrating many critical success factors in this comprehensive guide, Eric Verzuh brings a new vision to the art and science of project management." 每Chris Capossela, General Manager, Microsoft Project "Verzuh delivers with impact once again. Like his first book, this one is a &must have* for all professionals in project management. Everyone每from project managers to CEOs of project-based organizations每can*t help but be successful after reading and applying the principles established here. This is truly a significant contribution from a first-rate author." 每Ralph Kliem, author of The Project Manager*s Emergency Kit

"Eric Verzuh has produced another solid, readable book. In the tradition of good project management, he has gone &cross functional* and added outside expertise to his own impressive knowledge. Project management is about much more than technical tools, and so this book also explains the proper business approaches to running a project-driven organization." 每Dr. Denis F. Cioffi, Director of the Project Management Program at The George Washington University author of Managing Project Integration
