A practical guide for putting PMBOK concepts to work
A Project Managerâs Book of Tools and Techniques is an invaluable resource for students and working professionals alike. Whether youâre preparing for the PMP exam or just looking to optimize your project management skills, this book provides detailed explanations for over 100 essential tools described in the Project Management Instituteâs A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) Sixth Edition. Going beyond theory and concept to real-world practice, these tools and techniques are the âhowâ of effective project management; from planning, to implementation, to oversight, and beyond, all phases of the project are represented here to help you more effectively apply critical PMBOK concepts. Comprehensive examples illustrate real-world implementation, and detailed discussion provides expert guidance for both new and experienced project management professionals.
Knowing what to do is much different from knowing how to do it; even perfect understanding of the PMBOK Guide doesnât automatically translate into effective practice. This book is designed to help you bridge that gap and expertly apply current project management standards.
Concepts are only valuable once they are appliedâand then they become a skill set that gets results. The PMBOK Guide is the ultimate authority on project management concepts, but translating those concepts into applicable skills requires a detailed understanding of the tools of the field. A Project Managerâs Book of Tools and Techniques is a practical manual for putting essential project management concepts into practice.
