Livro: The Data-Driven Project Manager – A Statistical Battle Against Project Obstacles

Descritivo: Discover solutions to common obstacles faced by project managers. Written as a business novel, the book is highly interactive, allowing readers to participate and consider options at each stage of a project. The book is based on years of experience, both through the author’s research projects as well as his teaching lectures at business schools.

Structured as a novel, this book provides real-time simulations of how project managers can solve common project obstacles

  • Teaches a data-driven project management methodology which allows project managers to plan, monitor, and control projects while delivering them on time and within budget
  • Focuses on integration of three crucial aspects: baseline scheduling, schedule risk analysis, and project control
  • Presents different project management planning tools and techniques, such as PERT/CPM, to compare the expected risk of two very similar projects
  • Based on case-based lectures given at universities and business schools
