The Fourth Edition takes a close look at the specific challenges you will face as you move beyond the individual project, from the realities of organizational life, to inescapable issues such as organizational culture and structure, synchronization of multiple projects, and alignment with strategy. The book highlights the latest trends from a global perspective, and provides you with a practical understanding of how they will affect you as a project management practitioner.

You’ll gain a clear understanding of how project management fundamentals must be adapted to different industry and professional environments, including marketing, financial services, healthcare, and infrastructure development.
