Naked Project Management: The Bare Facts

Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

Project management depends largely on common sense and a logical, systematic approach. But it is necessary also to acquire some special skills to organize, schedule and control a project so that it produces the result that everyone wants. Dennis Lock explains and illustrates those skills in pragmatic and jargon-free terms. An entertaining case study runs through the chapters and the book covers all the vital topics in astonishingly few words. Naked Project Management is an essential primer for students and managers who need to understand how small projects should be managed, but without necessarily becoming permanent project managers themselves.

March 2013 Paperback 124 pages ISBN 978-1-4094-6105-0
Price £12.99/US$24.95
