Successful projects are the basis for a successful company, but many professionals lack the basic skills required to manage projects successfully. The Project Management Toolkit guides readers through each of the four key life-cycle stages that lead to effective project management. Focussed on successful project delivery in the engineering, industrial and process sectors, the books are aligned to the standard PMP (Project Management Professional) body of knowledge from the PMI and APM project management organisations and develop the PM knowledge that career project managers and those who only intermittently lead projects will be expected to use. The books tailor these tools to meet the particular challenges faced in these sectors, which can vary considerably from the needs of the IT, customer or financial services projects that are routinely covered in other guides. Each book can be used as a stand alone guide or be combined to provide a complete and powerful PM resource.

Get up and running on your project quickly and effectively: books focus one step at a time on the needs of engineering, industrial and process projects for career project managers and those involved with project intermittently
Practical, hands-on guides for those tasked with capital, product development or operational projects, aligned with the industry-standard PMP body of knowledge
Accompanied by online project planning and delivery tools, templates, workflow organizers and data sheets, plus check-lists, case studies and copious expert know-how

From the Back Cover
Maximise the impact of projects: choose the right project and realize the right benefits for your business

A practical handbook for career project managers and those involved intermittently with projects throughout their career.

Brief and visually led, Project Benefits Management gets to the point, giving you the knowledge and confidence to manage project benefits and increase the certainty of success.

Focused on the needs of engineering and technical Project Managers, but generic enough to support projects in other areas such as business change, IT and product development.

Supported by downloadable on-line project benefits management tool templates that enable the techniques developed in the book to be applied in practice.

Comprehensive real world case studies demonstrate the use of tools.

Project benefits management is the business process which links the start of a project to the end. This book shows how to manage the process as a core part of a project. Provides expert advice, tried-and-tested techniques and a benefits management toolkit to address the entire benefits lifecycle:

  • Benefits Concept
  • Benefits Specification
  • Benefits Realization

    Project Benefits Management focuses on maintaining a link between your project and the business. It asks: Why are we doing the project? Have we realized the benefits? It is the second of four titles that separately build skills and together provide a powerful project management resource.
