This paper explains that James Lewis's "Project Planning, Scheduling, and Control: A Hands-on Guide to Bringing Projects In On-Time and On-Budget" provides a succinct, accessible guide to all aspects of project management--from defining a mission of the project to post-project evaluation. The author points out that the book is easily readable and well-organized so that a layperson can gain a working knowledge of project management, even with little or no background in the field. The paper relates that Lewis' format, with review questions, main points highlighted at the end of each chapter, frequent flowcharts, tables and other visual aids contribute to this accessibility.
From the Paper:"The first section of Project Planning addresses tasks to be undertaken before action is taken regarding the project. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 explain the importance of and steps toward creating a specific plan, defining the overall mission of the project and a strategy for achieving the mission, and an implementation plan regarding step-by-step specifics for the plan. The first of these chapters stresses the importance of consultation with the people involved in carrying out the plan at its earliest stages, not just at the phase which requires their work."
