Synopsis

Statistical Techniques for Project Control by Adedeji B. Badiru, Tina Agustiady, Tina Kovach

Winner of the IIE Book of the Month for June 2012 A project can be simple or complex. In each case, proven project management processes must be followed. In all cases of project management implementation, control must be exercised in order to assure that project objectives are achieved. Statistical Techniques for Project Control seamlessly integrates qualitative and quantitative tools and techniques for project control. It fills the void that exists in the application of statistical techniques to project control. The book begins by defining the fundamentals of project management then explores how to temper quantitative analysis with qualitative human judgment that makes project control nebulous but also offers opportunities to innovate and be creative in achieving control. The authors then discuss the three factors (time, budget, and performance) that form the basis of the operating characteristics of a project that also help determine the basis for project control. They then focus on computational network techniques for project schedule (time) control. Although designed as a practical guide for project management professionals, the book also appeals to students, researchers, and instructors.

Reviews

... a powerful resource for CIO's, PMO's, product developers, and senior leaders of all stripes. What makes Statistical Techniques for Project Control so useful for all functional leaders is that it is not specific to IT project control. And, for CIO's and PMO's looking to expand their scope of services beyond IT projects, you will find plenty of insights to formulate your plan. ... The reason CIO's and other executives should read this book is that it will strengthen your ability to manage and lead the project management office function and help you strengthen your project management IQ as a project sponsor. -blog.thehigheredcio.com
