Practical Project Manageemnt

A new technical publication, Practical Project Management: Learning to Manage the Professional, Second Edition, by Gerald W. Cockrell has appeared in the ISA stable of publications.

Practical Project Management: Learning to Manage the Professional, Second Edition, goes beyond the scope of a simple how-to book. It defines each unique phase of a project and then provides practical knowledge in areas such as budget and cost estimates, contracts, negotiating, team building, scheduling and choosing project management software. In addition, the book provides sample forms, contracts and bids for industrial projects.

In today’s economy, organisations need to perform faster, better and cheaper. Projects have to conform to ever-tightening schedules and budgets. Because the second edition focuses specifically on techniques proven to be effective in industry, it is the ideal reference for both new and experienced project managers.

The second edition updates some of the newer concepts, including SCRUM Project Management. This methodology offers new techniques that may be used with automation-related projects.

Gerald W. Cockrell, a former Prseident of ISA, is a professor emeritus at Indiana State University and an internationally recognized leader in the development and delivery of distance process control and automation programs. He has served as project manager on numerous projects in the aerospace and pharmaceutical industries and in educational institutions.
