Who should do this
This book is for anyone who wants to learn enough project management to ensure their projects succeed. You won’t become a world authority on the project manage- ment discipline, but you will become an effective and efficient project manager. Although some of the examples in this book focus on projects that address techno- logical or systems-related issues—a growing industry in need of skilled project managers!—the book is intended for anyone who needs to manage projects of any sort.That said, this book won’t teach you to manage the construction of the next space shuttle. For very large and very complex projects, you will probably need a few extra and more rigorous tools. You’ll find some pointers to such tools in the appen- dices.
