BISAC: BUS101000

Projects are traditionally seen as temporary organizations designed for unique tasks, often in contrast to the mass-producing core activities of organizations. Projects are used by the engineers as tools for solving almost any type of problem. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of practices, challenges and developments within project management.

Topics discussed in this compilation include lessons learned in the role of the coordinator in the development of IT projects; the stakeholder challenge, based on a project management of collaborative research; project management applied to lithic analysis; sustainable management team as a key element in success of project management; and the impact of project schedule adherence and rework on the duration forecast accuracy of earned value metrics.
