Gower Handbook of Project Management by J. Rodney Turner and Stephen J. Simister
English | November 2000 | ISBN-10: 0566081385 | 766 pages | PDF | 11,1 MB

A handbook on project management. The content of this third edition is shaped by, and linked to, the body of knowledge produced by the International Project Management Association and the Project Management Institute of the USA, so should be useful for anyone following either certification programme.

In following this framework the book provides coverage of the knowledge required both by practising project managers and by those wishing to study the subject. The text is divided into seven parts. These cover: the systems of project management; the context of projects including political, economic, social, technical, legal and environmental issues; the management of performance, including functionality, quality, time, cost, risk and safety; the management of the project life-cycle; the management of commercial issues including appraisal and finance; the management of contracts; and the management of the people involved.
