By 2016, 1.2 million project management positions will need to be filled each year, according to a study by The Anderson Economic Group. Much advice exists but Tony Marks founder of one of the largest project management training and consulting companies in Britain offers a systematic and practical approach to guiding a project through to success. He firmly focuses on the real world, on practicality, clarity and applicability and uses a wide range of international case studies to demonstrate how best practice is applied in the world's leading organizations.
Marks structures his book around the five stages of a project lifecycle. For each phase, Defining, Appraising, Planning, Executing and Completing the project, a series of short chapters cover sections on theory, benefits and pitfalls, applications and case studies. Readers can therefore either follow through the entire process or dip into the section that reflects the current stage of their project. This systematic approach ensures that the successful delivery of a project is aligned, and stays aligned, with the organization's strategic objectives.
