Item description for Project Scheduling and Cost Control: Planning, Monitoring and Controlling the Baseline by James C. Taylor...
Scheduling and cost control are the key elements of successful project management. Yet, over 80% of all projects start with underestimated schedules and costs and are doomed to exceed projections before they begin. This clear and concise book demonstrates how to establish realistic estimates for successful project completion. It illustrates how to control a project s schedule and costs, but more importantly, it shows the reader how to develop the project s plans and processes so that schedule and cost control are achievable goals. Based on PMI standards, Project Scheduling and Cost Control provides valuable instruction for any project manager interested in achieving improved control of project costs and schedules. Additional material is provided relevant to those preparing to take the PMP certification exam.
