Description:

Successful projects are the basis for a successful company, but many professionals lack the basic skills required to accomplish this. The IChemE Project Management Subject Group has recognized the need to provide resources to deliver these skills, and has developed a series of books to share the latest best practice engineering essentials. This second title, though primarily written from the perspective of engineering projects within the process industries, is generic enough to support project managers in many other disciplines. It provides for those starting out in project management, is ideal for students as a university textbook and is also an indispensable reference for established project managers. Get up and running on your project quickly and effectively: books focus one step at a time on the needs of engineering, industrial and process projects for career project managers and those involved with project intermittently Practical, hands-on guides for those tasked with capital, product development or operational projects, aligned with the industry-standard PMP body of knowledge Accompanied by online project planning and delivery tools, templates, workflow organizers and data sheets, plus check-lists, case studies and copious expert know-how
