Great book to master project management. The books starts by presenting the current state of project management and the gaps, issues, and misconceptions faced, supported by researches and studies, and close the book by presenting the solution recommended. This book is part of series books that will explore the solution in details. Charlie Kafrouni, PMP, GPM-b.
