Professional Project Management (PM), with its well-defined concepts and tools, is now well established and can be used in the world at large. But wherever PM is utilized old problems invariably recur and new problems arise. It is this consideration which forms the main theme of this volume. The book tackles questions such as: - are the currently available computerized planning tools user-friendly enough for average people to use them effectively ? - where does one find and develop the ideal project manager ? - how can behaviour of people involved in projects be successfully predicted ? In addition, attention is paid to new, emerging issues such as PM in the Developing Countries; the application of PM to the many non-technological processes of change in governmental and private organizations; cooperation, training and follow-up in smaller projects. Also discussed is the practical experience gained from successes and failures in actual projects. The challenge for the nineties is to meet the growing need for well-trained project managers. This volume is the international resource which aims to meet this challenge by providing a broad overview of the many facets of PM.
