A practical on-the-job resource for project managers in any industry, The Project Management Tool Kit has helped get countless projects completed on time and on budget. Now in an extensively revised third edition, this indispensable resource enables you to succeed amid shifting priorities, budget cuts, interruptions, and other obstacles.

The book addresses 100 specific project challenges, including all of the processes identified in the fifth edition of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). But unlike the PMBOK Guide®, which focuses on what to do, this up-to-the-minute edition of The Project Management Tool Kit provides you with specific, step-by-step “how-to” guidance on essential topics such as:

Scope planning l Schedule development and adjustment l Cost estimating and control l Communications l Decision making and problem solving l Working with new teams and new technology l Motivation and leadership l Stakeholder engagement and expectation management l Risk identification and monitoring l Software and technical tools l Activity definition and delegation l Selecting and using project metrics l Resource planning and budgeting l Documentation and project monitoring l Handling inherited projects l Special situations, contingencies, and project cancellations l Project cause-and-effect analysis l Forecasting project completion l And much more

Complete with checklists, charts, examples, and tools for easy implementation, the third edition contains all new information on topics including cost planning, schedule planning, scope planning, stakeholder engagement control, stakeholder management planning, and much, much more.

No matter where you are in your project management career, you need to stay on top of all the latest developments in the field...and you can always use all the help you can get. Fully revised, The Project Management Tool Kit is the one reference you need.
