Description - Managing Projects by David Boddy
Managing Projects deals with all forms of organisational change. It focuses particularly on project teams, since these play a critical role in implementing such projects effectively. In addition, it is ideally suited to those studying project or change management as part of a qualification, as well as helping those with some responsibility for managing a change project. The aim throughout is to equip those responsible for building and leading the project team with more confidence and skill in understanding the human aspects of change. This book is suitable for courses in project management at post-experience, MBA and executive MBA level, and for strategic, change, and innovation management courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. FEATURES *Views project management from an organisational behaviour perspective, thus supplementing conventional approaches that stress formal methods and procedures. The focus is on the human aspects of managing projects and their teams. *The author draws from his own research and practitioner experiences as a basis for the ideas and theories presented, thereby connecting theory and practice.
*Each chapter begins with a short introductory section leading to learning objectives, and concludes with a case study and questions, further reading and references. This provides structured learning and self-assessment opportunities, and encourages readers to engage actively with the subject material. *'Notepad' application feature integrated throughout the text encourage readers to relate the topic of a section to their own experience, or that of an organisation. David Boddy is Research Fellow in the Department of Business and Management at the University of Glasgow.
