In today’s business world getting profitable and staying there is a really big challenge. The climb to being a profit making company is often a long and arduous one. While there are really no shortcuts to becoming a profitable and viable company, there is a tried and tested technique, regretfully all too often ignored, that will help make this journey a more comfortable, and less trial and error one.

Project management is key in making any project undertaken by your company a successful one. Multiple successful projects in turn, are key to becoming a profitable and viable company and staying there. In this material Shailesh Mehta, has explained the scope of project management in simple, lucid and easy to implement terms. If any project can be easily decomposed into a definite set of measurable attributes, then simply paying close attention to these attributes, especially how they are performing on a day to day basis, will empower anyone to determine the success ( or failure ) of the project being undertaken. Hence, understanding and applying project management techniques is crucial to project success, Shailesh Mehta, delivers simple, but very sound concepts in this book. I believe that it’s a great read and a useful addition
to any library.
