The fourth edition of Harold Kerzner’s Project Management Best Practices: Achieving Global Excellence is a comprehensive guide to project management implementation, updated with the latest in the field.

It provides implementation guidance for every phase of a project, based on the real-world methodologies from leading companies around the globe. Updated to align with the industry’s latest best practices, this new edition includes new discussion on Agile and Scrum, tradeoffs and constraints, Portfolio PMO tools, and much more.

Readers will be able to:

  • Get up-to-date information on the latest best practices that add value at every level of an organisation
  • Gain insight from more than 50 project managers at world-class organisations including Airbus, Heineken, RTA, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Sony, Cisco, Nokia, and more
  • Delve deeper into implementation guidance for Agile, Scrum, and Six Sigma
  • Explore more efficient methodologies, training, measurement, and metrics that boost organisation-wide performance
  • Adopt new approaches to culture and behavioural excellence, including conflict resolution, situational leadership, proactive management, staffing, and more

Ideal for both college and corporate training, this book is accompanied by an Instructor’s Manual and PowerPoint lecture slides that bring project management concepts right into the classroom.


Cynthia Snyder Dionisio’s A Project Manager's Book of Tools and Techniques is an invaluable resource for students and working professionals alike. Whether preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam or just looking to optimise project management skills, this book provides detailed explanations for over 100 essential tools described in the Project Management Institute's A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition.

Going beyond theory and concept to real-world practice, these tools and techniques are the "how" of effective project management. From planning, to implementation, to oversight, and beyond, all phases of the project are represented here to readers more effectively apply critical PMBOK® concepts.

Comprehensive examples illustrate real-world implementation, and detailed discussion provides expert guidance for both new and experienced project management practitioners.

Knowing what to do is very different from knowing how to do it. This book is designed to help bridge the gap and expertly apply current project management practices.


Both titles will be available in print and as an e-book wherever books are sold
