Unlike most books on project management, general principles are presented first-and the details follow. In order to make the learning process clear, simple, and useful, Project Management Demystified offers questions at the end of each chapter to pinpoint weaknesses, and case studies throughout the book to reinforce the entire process of project management.

* Transform a good idea into a smooth-flowing project
* Ensure project delivery with the "Six Keys to Success"
* Turn disorganized "to-do" lists into effective action plans
