A common misconception about PM is that it is an overly daunting profession. This has been sustained by the sheer size of textbooks that are available to a prospective practitioner. This text, and the many to follow in the MPSB series, delivers a succinct PM toolkit in less than 100 pages. Conversely, the latest PMBOK (5th Edition) is over 600 pages. Much like the legacy guides, the advent of the Internet has afforded many new PMs an opportunity to explore/search topics of interest at great depths and gains a tacit understanding of broad subject matters. By providing a quick project management framework - complete with background information and sample scenarios – MPSB enables the practitioner to gain the requisite initial exposure (or refresher) and readily implement procedures to boost their daily productivity. Use cases 1. This handbook is useful for anyone interested in the discipline of project management – from the casually curious to seasoned practitioners. Each handbook in the series provides a simplified explanation of a particular project management concept. 2. When on-the-go, MPSB can ground your knowledge with a clear, easily digestible and formalized guide that can be used to organize your venture.
