Description:

This is the first book in the new partnership between Wiley and the International Institute for Learning (IIL). The new series features cutting-edge approaches to project management that provide project managers with new perspectives as well as practical tools. Written by bestselling project management experts Harold Kerzner and Frank Saladis, Value-Driven Project Management challenges the traditional view that focuses on planning, scheduling, and controlling, proposing a fundamentally different approach that looks at the added value project management brings to the corporate and business strategy as a whole.
