Evolution and Maturity of PM

Paperback
When and how was project management developed in history? The Evolution and Maturity of PM presents an overview of project management discourse from its origins. Chapter discussions will take the reader through the development of informal management concepts applied in ancient projects of human achievement like the Great Wall of China and the pyramids of Egypt up to the present state of the art. Recounting the intellectual history and philosophical sources on which the current body of knowledge is founded, this book also surveys project management tools, techniques, and processes that have become formalized in present day project-based organizations.
