Project Management

This book teaches you the basics of Project Management. It describes how to work as a Project Manager in different kinds of projects - whether they have a clear goal or are based on a vision.
Today, there are projects in all kinds of activities. To show how different kinds of projects can be managed, five examples are presented: the Tramline Project, the Pacemaker Project, the Kick-o Project, the City Development Project and the Profitability Project. By using these recurring examples, the book deals with planning projects in terms of time, function and cost, managing and controlling projects, and handing over and closing projects. The authors discuss both linear models for project management, what are known as stage-gate models, and agile methods such as Scrum.

The book focuses on managing the individual project, but it is also placed in a broader context - in relation to the surrounding organization or company, and in relation to other projects that it may be connected with in some way.
