This is a substantial, substantive overview of project management. Students could use Robert Wysocki’s book as the text for a survey course about various professional approaches to project management. It even includes problems, chapter-by-chapter “learning objectives” and case studies. However, professionals will find solid, useful content, as well. Wysocki brings a lot to the table: voluminous information, insights from his decades of experience and clear personal judgments about the various methods he covers. getAbstract recommends this authoritative text to project management practitioners, trainees and students.
