Delivering Project Excellence with the Statement of Work

Companies lose vast amounts of money every year on failed and mismanaged projects. Delivering Project Excellence with the Statement of Work explains how to avoid the many pitfalls and deliver successful projects on time and within budget, using a highly successful tool - the Statement of Work (SOW) - to establish the baseline, develop pricing and measure changes and profitability. This fully updated second edition, which includes a new chapter on the use and application of the statement of objectives, presents the latest techniques to help you and your team to ensure that your projects meet specified scope and quality and to control risks by clearly defining roles and responsibilities. In addition to new advice on drafting a quality SOW and discussion of the legal considerations relating to the SOW, author Michael Martin provides a wealth of new examples of SOWs and case studies from a variety of projects and business environments to give you the insight you need to deliver excellence on your project.
