Having the appropriate knowledge to plan, schedule, monitor and control a project remains important for today’s practitioners. This book offers comprehensive coverage of all the relevant topics that make up that knowledge, and is structured in such a practical way that gaining that knowledge is easily done.

It is concise and accessible in its structure, with clear graphics and simple referencing. The book goes one step beyond other publications in covering all topics with equal importance, but equally it is clear where challenges and limitations in implementation may exist.

The book offers the opportunity for the project management community to implement tools within different project contexts and push the boundaries of our existing knowledge. That can only be a good thing. Practitioners should make full use of this opportunity to take project management to its next level by developing knowledge through practice.

I believe that this publication has captured the best practices for planning and will become the reference document of note for organisations and their teams during future project deliveries.
