Vienna, VA (PRWEB) September 8, 2005
The Center for Systems Management (CSM), the leader in integrating systems engineering, project management and process improvement, today announced the availability of Visualizing Project Management, Third Edition. The authors, Kevin Forsberg, Hal Mooz, and Howard Cotterman address the next project frontier -- technical management -- and the growing importance of integrating project management and systems engineering.
Their latest book, available online and in bookstores, upgrades popular process models to enable simple, elegant solutions for even the most challenging projects. The Third Edition delves deeper into development principles and tactics by introducing the Dual Vee, an enhancement of the widely accepted Vee Model, and expanding on Integration, Verification, and Validation.
The authors, recognized thought leaders and experienced practitioners in their field, reveal the path to project success, career advancement, and professional certification. This new edition provides extensive references to the best practices in the PMIÂ® PMBOKÂ® Guide, INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook, and SEI CMMI models.
"Most books on project management address the business and budget aspects of managing projects, but none of them adequately address the technical aspect," said Hal Mooz, Co-founder of CSM. "The Dual Vee facilitates concurrent architecture and entity development, something no other approach and development model provides."
"Today's projects are more complex and more critical than ever. This is why managing the expectations of both the customers and the sponsoring business executive requires effective project execution Â and perhaps more importantly, understanding and communicating the implications of decisions and changes throughout all aspects of the project cycle", said Scott Fischer, CEO and President of CSM. "This book really clarifies these issues in a way that is meaningful to project teams and their management."
