How do project team members get the knowledge, skills, and
attitudes needed to perform effectively? One proven method is
through the case study approach. The book offers 50 case studies
that represent the breadth and importance of project management and
its impact on the everyday management of projects. Each of the
cases provides new and unique challenges that have been mastered by
the practice of project management. Readers will be able to apply
the knowledge learned from this casebook in their work. The cases
enable readers to see how and why projects are used in a wide
variety of organizational settings in contemporary life. Readers
are exposed to both successful and not-so-successful project
management practices. The case-study approach encourages reader
participation and active learning, and provides the opportunity to
learn something of the real world of project management. It is
essential in the curricula of project management training for both
undergraduate and graduate students, as well as for continuing
education, consulting, and in-house company training programs. The
cases were chosen for their importance in discussing the
fundamentals of project management. Most contain descriptions of
actual projects, and each is followed by a series of questions to
guide readers' analysis of the article to maximize the learning
