Acknowledgments

This book is the product of many years in public and private industry learning to manage projects and organizations. Much of what I have learned about project management is the result of trying to teach or mentor others. It was well said by someone, "Learning is best achieved through teaching." I have also grown intellectually, as well as professionally, through my seven-year association with ESI International—first as an instructor of their fine project management courses and now as a full-time employee responsible for ensuring that our courses teach the most current project management perspectives, techniques, and tools. I am especially grateful to my ESI colleagues who patiently listen to my theories and opinions and who are so artful at helping me crystallize my thoughts. And finally I wish to thank ESI senior management for their encouragement to write this book and for their help in providing me with information and resources to accompany my research into the many facets of project management.
