Vault Guide to Project Management

2018 Vault Guide to Project Management Jobs

The Vault Guide to Project Management Jobs is one of several career resources on PM in the Vault collection. To see additional blog entries, company and internship profiles and more, you also can search all of the Vault content on PM.

NOTE: Make sure you are on the vpn to use Vault. Occasionally, even if you are on the vpn, the link to a guide won't let you into our subsription content (it displays a price). If that happens, go to the main Vault page, then look for the title from there. You'll know it's working correctly when it displays "Access provided by University of California - San Diego" in the upper right corner.

What is Project Management?

 

 

 

Project management,


according to Claude Maley,


"...is the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives....The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the established and agreed-upon project constraints. Typical constraints are scope, time, and budget."

(p. 2, Project Management Concepts, Methods, and Techniques).

 

December 2020 - new content added to this guide: Updates to the Workbooks tab include cookbooks for Microsoft Project and more; new tab for Vdieo & Audio content; featured books were refreshed with new content.
