Additional Book Details

"With this book, Jim Taylor has captured the essence of project scheduling and cost control as a process versus just an activity, teaching the reader the true art and science of this vital process.
Bob McGannon, Director, Mindavation

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 projects schedule and costs, but more importantly, it shows the reader how to develop the projects plans and processes so that controlling the schedule and costs are achievable goals.
