As the market-leading textbook on the subject, Project Management: The Managerial Process, 5e is distinguished by its balanced treatment of both the technical and behavioral issues in project management. Additionally, it provides coverage of a broad range of industries to which project management principles may be applied. The 5th edition reflects the latest changes found in the practice, including a heavily revised chapter on outsourcing and a focus on oversight. Other texts discuss the topics covered in this text but they do not view oversight as the project manager’s operating environment, as does Larson/Gray.
