This book is concerned with the application of project management to achieve the outcomes organisations require. But what is the right area of application? For project management to be effective you must apply the right form of project management in the right situations, in the right way to the right sorts of problems. You must understand the strengths and weaknesses of project management.
Additionally, there are situations in which project team members need to explain project management to stakeholders. To do this successfully it is useful to be clear about the strengths, weaknesses and limits to project management.
