Since publication of the first edition in 1992, Project Management for Designers and Facilities Managers has remained the leading choice for professionals and students seeking to learn and master the skills needed to successfully lead a project from conception to completion and beyond. Few engineering, architectural or facilities management courses offer training in this important activity and therefore most project managers learn their skills on the job. With this practical, indispensable book, you will gain all the essential skills needed for effective project management, presented in the clear, easy-to-follow style that is a hallmark of this book. Particular emphasis is devoted to effective communications essential to the optimal performance of every member of the project team. This edition is completely revised and includes three new chapters. Everything you need to manage a successful project in the design and facilities space is here.
