This eBook (5/7; Adaptive Project Management & Tailored Methods series) describes the general concepts of how to manage a project, concept to success. It highlights the differences in managing at the project level, versus managing each stage along the project life cycle.In this book, we discuss various project management functions and topics, such as approvals, estimating, control, risk, among others. We present them from the perspective of a project management methodology, CAMMP™. The discussion includes addressing these topics from a project level and stage level, for example, estimating for the project versus estimating for each stage.
