This book "cuts through the muck" of endless Project Management Books with carefully picked "Golden Nuggets" of information from the author's own knowledge and experience. Using a funnel approach, this book will introduce some over-arching concepts and important contexts, such as the connections with Business Strategy, Stage Gate Project Models and Portfolio Management Office, and then focus in on the key Project Management Tools.
