Formal project management is no longer limited to big companies. Even small firms are looking for ways to organize and control the flood of details that make up the average project.
At the same time, they're realizing that such efforts need to be coordinated companywide, not merely at the individual project level. That means setting up a project control department or office--a process spelled out step-by-step in this much-needed book. Packed with field-tested checklists and forms, it shows readers how to:
Fit the project office into the current organizational structure
Determine the necessary software and other tools
Structure efforts for consistent results
Handle slippages in cost, time, and other core factors
Adapt the wealth of templates provided in the book into company-specific deliverables, and more.
