Project management tools can be used as an alternative to improve and strengthen a company's position in the market. However, the management of projects has been in constant transformation. Elements such as time, cost, and scope, on which it is based, have been complemented with other trends, such as the project team, change management, knowledge management, good negotiation practices, management of stakeholders, sustainability, etc. In order to improve the competitiveness of their company and increase earned value, managers must remain up to date on these latest transformations and best practices. The Handbook of Research on Project Management Strategies and Tools for Organizational Success is a pivotal reference source that analyzes and disseminates new trends that will allow managers to improve their skills and strengthen the performance of their companies through obtaining better results in the projects undertaken. While highlighting topics such as market growth, risk management, and value creation, this book is ideally designed for project managers, managers, business professionals, entrepreneurs, academicians, researchers, and students seeking current research on improving the competitiveness of companies as well as increasing their earned value.
There is a critical point of failure for every knowledge management effort: when the strategy is isolated from the organization, and when there is no vision anchoring the strategy. Strategy is not a starting point, but a step in the process of creating a sustainable foundation for knowledge management efforts. Given that most knowledge management professionals do not have a grounding in vision development, this backwards approach puts any knowledge management effort at a disadvantage from the very beginning. In the four sections of this book, expert authors Monique Ceruti, Angel Williams and Denise Bedford guide readers through the building blocks of turning knowledge management visions into strategies. They enable professionals to demonstrate their value to the organization's strategic future, as well as empowering readers to take a lead in developing a future vision, and to help establish a foundation for a 21st century knowledge organization. Providing knowledge management professionals with a roadmap for success within their organizations, this is an unmissable book for any professional or researcher tasked with creating new strategies for knowledge management organizations.
