Project management is in everything we do, from our personal lives to our professional careers. It is the fastest-growing profession in the world, and the skills learned in this book can be used for any sort of project, large or small: setting up a small business; planning a wedding, family vacation, company picnic, or other event; and organizing projects of any scale.

This beginner’s guide will teach you real-world project management skills for any project and will help prepare you to become a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) or Certified Associate Project Manager (CAPM).

This fourth edition provides up-to-date information on how to effectively manage projects, programs, and portfolios to achieve organizational success. It includes tips and sample questions at the end of each chapter as well as a mock exam to help prepare you for the Project Management Institute (PMI) certification exams.

This text follows the three PMI domains: People, Business Environment, and Processes. A case study with detailed real-world examples, sample templates, and actual project documents guides you through your own projects, from charter to close, using all five project groups (initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing projects).

This edition takes the standard processes and framework for traditional projects introduced in PMI’s sixth edition Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and adds the new focus on Agile (adaptive) project management methods, tools, and techniques in PMBOK’s seventh edition to enhance your knowledge and ability to handle a wide range of projects.
