This preview presents the first of many pages from the book to illustrate the book’s format, our philosophy, and the many types of examples. We begin by presenting the first few pages of the first chapter, in which we define a project.

You can begin to see the structure and style of the book. The side notes provide context sensitive commentary.

Another theme is emerging …. we analyze everything, we don’t just take things for granted. We encourage our readers to “Challenge Everything.”

The extended discussion means that we can provide a very precise definition of a project, with an extensive justification.

Having covered the project, we are now in a position to define “Project Management.”
