This text for undergraduate and graduate courses in business and engineering covers basic principles and concepts of project management in depth, with 46 case studies and many sample problems across a range of industries. The structure of the text reflects the importance of behavioral rather than quantitative aspects of project management. Early chapters present core topics and deal with support functions and executive involvement. Later chapters look at quantitative issues such as planning and cost control, and cover more advanced topics such as managing cultural differences, quality management, concurrent engineering, and contracts and procurement. Kerzner teaches systems management at Baldwin-Wallace College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
