Learn how project management can make a company sink or soar

Project Management Case Studies presents a compilation of illustrative case studies showcasing both exceptional and poorly-implemented project management techniques. Broad in scope yet rich in industry-specific detail, this book provides over 100 case studies drawn from real companies to demonstrate ways in which project management concepts translate into real-world action. This new fifth edition has been updated to meet today's project management standards, and features 18 new case studies including high-profile cases from Disney, the Olympics, 787 Dreamliner, Airbus 380, and more, with new cases that specifically focus on agile and scrum methodologies. Whether you're preparing for a PMP certification, seeking continuing education, or just looking to broaden your understanding of the project management function, this book provides crystal-clear illustration of what real-world project management entails.

Effective project management is the key to competitive advantage and financial success for any company. Planning, scheduling, and controlling are critical functions that can make or break an operation, and when things go wrong, the results can be catastrophic. This book takes you inside major successes and failures to show you what worked, what didn't, and what should have been done differently.
* Learn how project management techniques are put into real-world practice
* Discover how companies rely upon project managers to remain competitive
* Examine agile and scrum methodologies and their applications in industry
* Identify new practices and techniques that could benefit your organization

Project management is more action than concept, making case studies the ideal way to internalize essential techniques. Whether used alone or as a supplement to any project management textbook, Project Management Case Studies provides invaluable insight and clear lessons from major companies around the world.
