Detailed Description:There may be no simple formula for success in public-sector projects, but Public-Sector Project Management delivers the next best thing: a complete set of skill-building strategies that puts success well within your reach.

Building on industry standards and best practices as well as almost thirty years of public-sector experience, this definitive sourcebook clearly explains how to manage projects in the public sector and navigate their many challenges. Here is where you'll find all the tools to accomplish your goals for any public-sector project, whether you are overseeing military and security operations, the construction of public infrastructure, improving agency processes, deploying new systems or public programs, or any other public initiative.

This book covers one of the largest gaps in project management literature the government or public sector. The author describes the unique challenges of managing projects in the public sector and provides tools and templates for public-sector managers as they try to achieve results in that environment, which is characterized by limited resources, political and media oversight, overt opposition, complex sets of rules and processes, and unclear goals and outcomes. By being compliant with PMI's PMBOK® Guide 4th Edition, as well as the Government Extension to the PMBOK® Guide, Third Edition, this book provides a complete set of project management tools for public-sector managers that are both compliant with universal best practices and the unique challenges of the public sector.

Inside, you'll find:

  • Expert guidance consistent with project management best practices
  • In-depth coverage of public-sector constraints, including purchasing systems, legal mandates, political and media oversight, and complex rules and processes
  • Specific strategies to enhance the management capability of public-sector managers and private-sector project managers working under government contracts
  • Emphasis on the role of planning in managing customer, manager, and project team expectations, and coping with the overlapping systems of constraints that impede public-sector projects
  • Techniques for managing contractors and vendors
  • Tools for managing the complexity inherent in most public-sector projects
  • Insightful case studies of notable and historic public-sector projects; chapter-ending discussion questions and exercises; numerous tables and figures; and key terms in the glossary
