What kinds of project is this book aimed at?

Most projects are small projects with few project staff, perhaps a part-time project manager and no other dedicated staff. At the other end of the scale are very large projects, such as building the Three Gorges Dam in China, or preparing London for the Olympic Games, or merging two large corporations. The framework presented in this book is based on fundamental principles that apply to all projects in all industries. (In the same way, the principle in cooking is that one starts cooking different parts of the meal at different times so that the meal comes together at the same time, whether one is cooking for oneself only, or cooking a feast for five thousand.) However we have tended to give examples of small to medium-sized projects, because experience shows that this is where most readers work.
