Note that the book is EDITED by Elias G. Carayannis, and two of his colleagues, and that it is not entirely written by him. Only one of the chapters is written by Dr. Carayannis. Each chapter is written by a different author, so the book is more of a collection of writings and/or cases. If you are expecting a textbook that methodically discusses the components of Project Management, this is not the book for you. Some of the chapters have poor grammatical usage (See Ch. 4). Overall, it is a decent complementary PM book - not one that will provide definitions or basic concepts, but rather analysis and discussion on PM topics.

Product Description:

Project management has been practiced for thousands of years, but only recently have organizations begun to apply systematic management tools and techniques to manage complex projects. Today's approaches to project management can be traced directly to methodologies designed by the U.S. military and Department of Defense in the years after World War II. Subsequent advances in management information systems have helped to codify project management practices; most recently, the Internet has dramatically enhanced the ability of individuals, teams, and organizations to manage projects across continents and cultures in real time. The Story of Managing Projects showcases cutting-edge research conducted around the world on emerging practices in project management. Covering an enormous spectrum of subjects and industriesâ€'from an upgrade of the Greek railway system to infrastructure reconstruction in Kuwaitâ€'the authors explore the full range of inter-personal, technical, and organizational dynamics of project management, contributing new insights to its theory and application.
