Managing High-Technology Programs and Projects
— Third Edition 2003
“It is by far the most comprehensive, practical and easy to understand reference book on project management principles that I have seen to date.” Jeb Riordan, Editor, PROJECT magazine.
Also published in Russian, Italian, and Chinese.
“Managing High-Technology Programs and Projects is unique among project management literature. It is not an academic treatise, a folksy, first-person narrative or a consolidated collection of related, previously published articles.
It is a unified presentation of forward-thinking principles and practices that bridge senior executives, project managers and project teams and define an integrated path to improved project management performance and success.” Kenneth H. Rose, PMI Book Review Editor, PMI PMNetwork July 2003 p 67.
As before, author Russell Archibald has produced a valuable work of reference, elaborating on and clarifying many aspects of his earlier writings.
As the cover jacket says ‘A complete, practical, and proven approach to managing large-scale projects with emphasis on those involving advanced technology.’ R. Max Wideman, PMI Fellow and past PMI Chairman.
