Abstract:

The growing complexity of projects and the uncertainty that reigns in today's global economy are rendering ineffective traditional project practices and processes. These outdated techniques are based on the premise that knowledge about a project is complete before it ever starts--this is nearly impossible in today's ever-changing world. New methods are needed to allow projects to adapt to changing conditions. Simply said, project management has to evolve! This book presents the latest steps in this evolution.
