This book presents the fundamentals of project management in simple language and an easy-to-understand format. It is targeted principally at those who are learning or desiring to learn project management as well as those who are already taking project management as a course of study or as a profession. It covers all the basic aspects of project management including the core areas prescribed by the Project Management Institute (PMI) in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) sixth edition. Although the PMBOK Guide seventh edition has significantly shifted focus from a process based standard to a principle based standard, it does not invalidate nor replace the detailed knowledge base contained in the sixth edition, which substantially emphasizes project management processes and knowledge areas. This is particularly apt for the traditional approach to project delivery, which is predictive in nature and has the bulk of the planning done upfront.

The sections of the book are arranged in order of Project Management Processes as they fall within the respective Project Management Knowledge Areas. Experienced project manager, Davies Igberaese, presents all the basic content of traditional project management in a straightforward practical sequence as a typical project manager would go about the processes of initiating, planning, executing, monitoring, and closing a project without losing sight of the iterative nature of project management. The inclusion of Project Management Templates gives students and other users of the book the confidence required to effectively understand the basics of managing a wide variety of projects across disciplines including construction, building, industrial engineering, petroleum engineering, software engineering, information technology, business administration, and event management. Introduction to Project Management: A Source Book for Traditional PM Basics can serve as a core textbook for academic courses in project management, for preparing for PMP and CAPM Certification exams, as an excellent resource for new project managers, as well as a handy reference book for project sponsors.
