Project Management Case Studies and Lessons Learned
2015, Project Management Case Studies and Lessons Learned
Stakeholder, Scope, Knowledge, Schedule, Resource and Team Management
This paper helps in understanding and reviewing the different types of risks and challenges that are encountered with respect to project management and how various methods can be used to resolve those risks. The main interest of this paper is to analyze the influence of the dynamic and ever-changing environment of projects nowadays. Corporate projects undergo lots of real time changes and these need to be thought of and understood before starting the project so as to avoid any delays or obstruction in the completion of the project. The following are some of the topics that have been analyzed in this paper: What is project management? What are the challenges faced? How can those issues be resolved?
Ankara : The Faculty of Management and the Graduate School of Business Administration of Bilkent Univ., 1993.
Projects are widely recognized nowadays by organizations. They are part of the activities of both education providers and companies. Project management has been applied in organizations since the 1960's. However, despite garnering experience and improving on available methods, a significant number of projects (including educational ones) still fail. According to the Gartner Group's worldwide research, the percentage of unsuccessful projects (failed and challenged) as of the year 2012 was 61%. Therefore, the question, " what drives the success of the project? " , remains a fresh issue. Researchers thus undertake to continuously narrow this knowledge gap. However, as the issue is a complex one, many ideas, concepts and pieces of advice are given. In the article, based on the literature review, different approaches to projects' success are presented, discussed and systemized. The factors influencing the success of projects are identified and presented in the following areas: (1) applied methods, (2) people in projects, (3) and organizational context. Method-related issues are about utilizing tools and techniques in project management. Moreover, they cover the application of global standards while managing the projects. The discussion on the influence of the people involved in the project is not limited to human resources only. Widely recognized and fresh ideas of the Stakeholder Management concept are discussed as well. Last, but not least, the issue of the organizational context in which the projects are executed is emphasized. This matter is of high importance nowadays as the complexity and the number of managed projects has increased significantly within the last twenty years. Furthermore, the author outlines some characteristics related to the different types of projects and their associated success factors. Some advice for practitioners is given on what kind of action should be undertaken to increase the success of projects. The findings of this article can be of special interest to managers of any type of projects, including international ones where Stakeholder Management and organizational issues tend to play an important role in project success.
Construction Economics and Building
A Delphi study using project managers who had managed projects in excess of $500 million was used to confirm the significance and frequency of problems resulting from the nature of projects. Using the results obtained from the Delphi study a ranking of the problems experienced in these projects was obtained by calculating a Relative Importance Index. Additionally, the Delphi panel members were asked their views concerning the need for traditional project management skills (hard skills) and team management skills (soft skills) as project size increased from below $50 million to over $500 million. A substantial increase in the need for both skills was indicated with the increase in the need for soft skills being the most significant.
Every project faces risk of delays and disruptions, especially the mega/complex projects of today, which have, amongst others, many interfacing parties engaged. Local roads and drainage projects in general, including DN016, can be considered complex projects due to a number of reasons such as, a) working in residential areas, b) deep excavations, c) number of interfacing parties, d) project duration, e) multifaceted identification for the location of existing underground utilities. The contractor decided to use some tools to help minimize the negative impacts of a number of challenges such as, 1) workface planning by dividing the project into 5 zones and start working in free zones for early zone handover, 2) lean construction to minimize the waste, 3) management processes in order to control the known-unknown challenges and risks and to minimize those and 4) Building Information Model (BIM) for the identification of major and minor clashes to the designer in order to resolve them e...

It covers all the major points that I want my students to understand when learning about the craft of project management.
While this book does address that project management is applicable to many sectors and careers, it doesn't provide as much a of a non-profit lens on project management as I would like my students to understand. This text is meant to apply to any type of project management though, which is important for my students to understand even though this specific class is about project management in the non-profit world.
Relevance/Longevity rating: 5
It is very up to date and would be easy to update in the future.
It's very easy to read.
Yes, this text provides consistency in the terminology it uses.
One of the reasons I picked this text besides that it was comprehensive and an easy read was because I could easily divide it up into smaller sections to help support our in class learning sessions.
It is organized well and in a thought out manner.
There were no issues when I read this text.
No major grammatical errors in the text.
Cultural Relevance rating: 5
There is nothing that jumped out at me reading this text that would be culturally sensitive, but I wasn't reading looking for that either.
This book does a good job of covering all the aspects of project management. It keeps things simple and basic, which is great for students who are just now learning about the craft of project management.

This textbook provides a comprehensive overview of project management, including associated processes and tools. This introductory text can be an excellent supplement to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK) given the flow and structure of the chapters. That being said, project management has evolved over the last several years where a discussion of new methodologies, such as Agile and Critical Chain, could provide additional benefit to readers.
Content Accuracy rating: 5
The textbook accurately describes project management fundamentals and provides accurate definitions of terms.
The fundamentals of project management are unlikely to shift much given the relevance of traditional waterfall approaches. Given that the purpose of the PMBoK, and other introductory texts such as this, is to provide a set of best practices for the field, the material will stay relevant. That being said, new methodology such as Agile is becoming increasingly common, so readers should keep that in mind and review newer methodologies on their own.
The textbook is very clear, providing definitions of key project management terms where needed. Additionally, case study examples provide insight into practical application(s) of the discussed topic, further elaborating on key terms and providing more clarity.
Throughout the entire textbook, the same terms are used and the formatting of chapters is similar such that the reader can get comfortable with the flow of material.
Modularity rating: 4
The textbook does an excellent job of decomposing project management topics into easy-to-digest sections, which the reader can comfortably read in one sitting. That being said, the textbook could benefit from sample exercises or problems after each chapter so the reader could apply the new knowledge in a practical way to enhance retention.
All topics in the textbook are presented in a logical way, similar to the sequence in an actual project, where you begin with stakeholder analysis and conclude with project completion. This organization further allows the reader to understand the structure of project management processes.
The textbook has clear examples, with graphics as needed, that are free from errors and are clearly displayed.
The textbook does not contain any evident grammatical errors and is therefore easy to read and digest.
Given the nature of the textbook and the way material is presented, it is not culturally insensitive or offensive in any way.
This textbook provides an excellent introduction to project management by decomposing relevant structure and processes. I would highly recommend this textbook to students seeking to learn the fundamentals of a dynamic field. Supplemental material regarding Agile, and other new project management processes, can be provided separately to further guide class discussions.

The textbook is pretty comprehensive and covers all aspects of project management. The book is well - organized and provides power points and audio files in the end of each chapter. However some of the chapters are not much in detail. For instance, chapter 3 is pretty basic and should cover topics in detail.
I did not identify any accuracy issues.
The book is recommended for a senior level class. All the topics can be introduced in the junior sections, and thereafter, can be reintroduced in the senior sections.
The book is consistent with industry standards.
Consistency rating: 4
Some of the topics in this book are inconsistent and don't follow PMI standards. For instance, the phases of the project lifecycle can be reframed.
All the chapters can be divided into smaller reading sections and the language is very easy to understand.
No issues with the organization of this book.
I did not find any grammatical errors.
The book provides basic understanding of the project management discipline in a global environment and is politically correct.
Few of the chapters can be updated with the upcoming trends in the project management discipline.

The text covers all project management knowledge areas and process groups. The table of content shows all of the topics in an organized way. However, I think some chapters are short, and therefore they should include more content. For example, Chapter 3 “The Project Life Cycle (Phase)” consists of four main phases with limited information for each of them. This chapter can be considered as a summary. There is a lack of clarification regarding the structure of the text after this chapter. Agile project management is addressed with only the Scrum framework in Chapter 4. One important advantage of this OER is that it provides PowerPoint presentation files and audio files for each chapter.
The content looks accurate. However, some parts need more explanation with exercises and case studies.
Relevance/Longevity rating: 3
The book was published in 2014. There are three updates in 2017 and 2019. However, they are mostly related to the formatting, not the content. Although the book covers the main topics in project management, there have been updates in the primary body of knowledge guide (PMBOK Guide) published by the Project Management Institute (PMI). The sixth edition was published in 2017, and the seventh edition will be released in August 2021. Besides, in the meantime, new and emerging technologies changed the corporate and social environment with new opportunities, and the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the understanding of risk evaluation and mitigation strategies. The content cannot be considered obsolete, but updates are required throughout the chapters.
Clarity rating: 4
The text is well-written, and it can be understood without ambiguity. However, a lack of explanation for some chapters and topics may leave doubts in many students’ minds.
The text is internally consistent in terms of terminology and framework.
The text was structured for modularity with 19 chapters and sections inside each chapter. Therefore, it can be easily and readily divisible into smaller reading sections although some chapters such as Chapter 19 cannot be considered a chapter, but a short conclusion.
Organization/Structure/Flow rating: 3
The chapter titles emphasize planning. Actually, planning is the most important part for a project manager. However, in project management, project monitoring and control, as well as execution (implementation), should be highlighted separately beside the planning. Therefore, it can create a perception that undermines the importance of other phases and process groups.
Interface rating: 4
Although chapter titles are available in the Table of Content, sections of chapters are not provided. The quality of the images is good in general. However, several figures such as Figure 1.1 don’t have a good resolution.
I did not find any grammatical errors. However, this issue should be addressed by an expert in this field.
In parallel with the global nature of project management discipline and diverse teams, the book provides examples of the implementation of projects in other cultures. For example, the “Project Management Expertise” section in Chapter 2 has a subsection “Understanding the Project Environment”. The last paragraph of this section reads “Project managers in multicultural projects must appreciate the culture dimensions and try to learn relevant customs, courtesies, and business protocols before taking responsibility for managing an international project. A project manager must take into consideration these various cultural influences and how they may affect the project’s completion, schedule, scope, and cost.” This positive approach is implemented throughout the book.
I found this book very helpful and included it in my two summer courses as a supplementary resource.

This text is a comprehensive overview of the basic functions and processes of project management. It is not an in-depth study in any one area of project management but does a great job of covering the end to end process for a survey or basics course.
I found the text to be accurate and sufficient for project management topics.
I like this text for the coverage of project management topics for a basic understanding of project methodology. Because it is a basics book, it does not cover agile methods sufficiently or address non-standard approaches to project management that could make it more relevant for today's project environments.
I really like this book for it's easy to understand language and straightforward layout. Students seem to be able to navigate and understand this book and are able to follow the direction that references the textbook.
This book is very consistent throughout with nicely structured chapters that are easy to digest in a single sitting.
This text has equally weighted chapters that are named appropriately and easy to understand. Within the chapters, there are section headers that make it easy to follow the content progression.
I use this book because it is so well organized. The chapters are clear and follow standard project management practice. They are structured by topic so it is easy to assign chapters that align to the content of the course.
The text is well designed with supporting images and examples that make the content more clear.
I have not found any grammatical issues.
I have not found any issues related to cultural sensitivities.
This is my go-to book for basic project management course needs. It is easy to read, understand, and use and I love the basic coverage of project management practice that it provides. This would not be a text for any specific project management topics that need more depth but it is a great basics book for those just starting out in project management. I highly recommend this text.

This text is perfect for a beginner's level course in Project Management.
The text includes all the standard body of knowledge components making up the traditional framework of project management.
As the text is organized according to this traditional framework, it is readily adaptable to updates of current examples and processes.
The text is definitely easy to read and at a level commensurate with a beginner's course.
The text is consistent in its use of terminology true to the body of knowledge of project management.
The text contains 16 chapters which readily fits the format of most college-level courses of 15-16 weeks of study. Additionally, chapters can be easily combined for a more topical study and/or a compressed delivery.
The text follows the traditional methodology of study of the phases of project management and remains true to the body of knowledge required.
The text includes clickable links for some images and figures making it highly interactive.
No grammatical errors were found in this text as it is written in a very professional manner.
There are no cultural issues within this text.
The examples used in this text for explanation of the difficult subject of precedence planning and diagramming are that of planning a wedding, making this a highly valuable text for the hospitality industry and specifically meeting and event project management.

This book is an excellent high level overview perfect for both business majors and engineers who are learning the ropes for staging a project.
This is a standard overview. I would have liked to see a bit more in depth on the techniques for planning but it is laid out in a similar way to how industry tackles problems.
Luckily barring a major industry overhaul, this is a well established workflow.
The book was written in an approachable non-technical fashion, with minimal use of jargon. Additionally lighthearted graphics increase the engagement.
The table formatting is a bit jarring at times (Colors, styles and fonts) which can be distracting.
The chapters are about the right length for a student to read before class, these would go well with a comprehensive case study.
There is a bit of a jump toward the end of this book (From project development to implementation is a bit glossed in my opinion), and I would have loved to see some implementation case study, but otherwise clear.
While the book does play some service to other cultures, I think a little more expansion on how regions can effect deliverable items as well as expectations is a major player. This won't be an issue to students or to the book, but I would add it as a consideration.
Overall this is a great primer on project management. I plan to use this book with Senior mechanical engineers to drive context on project planning.

Table of Contents should provide short description of content for each Chapter. Would like to see more Business Examples, since this was listed under Business Area. Missing major projects such as; New Product Development/Acquisition, Capital Expenditures, Business Plans, Administrative Projects (Health Care Choices, etc.) Also, examples were confusing; some were project types, while others were job types, in C2. The Preface had 5 elements of Project Management, but then C3 only had 4, missing Control. That should be the structure for the textbook, and it should be consistent. Communication Planning should be an earlier Chapter rather than C15. Too late by then. Good coverage of Group Dynamics, Gantt Charts, Budgeting, Quality Conrol, Risk Management, and Implementation. Would like to see links to Excel for NPV calculations. It would also be nice to have a case study of a project that flows through all of the Chapters. ,
As referenced above, there was a discrepancy in steps in Project Management; preface listed 5, C3 only had 4 - dropped Control. I assume this is a country of original difference, but Third Party Contracting is often used over Outsourcing. Same with Charter versus Contract. Not sure. It seemed to be well edited.
It has been around for a long time, but history should be more current/relevant - with examples students could understand. Perhaps steps to develop the iPhone?
Planning a wedding might not be a good example for business. Even planning a vacation or building a tiny home would be more relevant.
I prefer more lists, rather than long paragraphs.
Also, there could be concrete examples.
Have links or examples for finding budget details - trade organizations, franchises, etc.
Chapter 10 and 11 seem to cover the same steps of preparing timelines.
I think there should be an overview chapter that describes the process from start to finish, perhaps with an outline or workbook.
C15 Communication should be up front. Have Overview Chapter.
Interface rating: 2
I could not find the slides. I could not get the audio files to open. Each time I tried, there was no back button, and I had to reopen the PDF and scroll down to the page.
Do PDF's have a find or go to page option?
It was well written. Very clear.
I would skip the wedding example for a business textbook. Event planning could be a substitute.
I was looking for a textbook that I could use with a Capstone course where senior develop a business plan. I wanted a stronger business focus. However, this is close. Thanks.

This book covers all the topics relevant to Project Management. It outlines an overview of Project Management, the Project Life Cycle, and covers all knowledge areas as identified in the PMBOK 5th edition. It does not integrate using a software like Microsoft Project. The book references Implementation instead of Executing even though it mentions Execution as an alternative. It goes briefly over Integration, and Monitoring and Controlling. It can be used as a textbook to be supplemented with a software package and the changes in the PMBOK 6th edition.
The book is accurate and in line with the PMBOK 5th edition.
The book is relevant and covers the principles of Project Management. It can be used as a basic reference even after the PMBOK 6th edition is out.
This book is clear. The style is simple, easy, and to the point.
The book is consistent in terminology and framework.
The chapters can be easily divided and assigned as readings and reference materials in a course. The chapters are short, to the point, and simple to read and understand.
The book is organized. It starts with the overview, the project life cycle, framework, stakeholder management then moves to the initiation phase and dedicates 9 chapters to planning the different knowledge areas. It covers the Executing phase very briefly in the "Project Implementation Overview" chapter and the Closing phase in the "Project Completion" chapter.
The book interface is clean. It is easy to navigate. Even though the charts are small, they are clear. I did not identify any problems in the display features.
The text is free of grammatical errors.
The text is not culturally insensitive. Most examples are universal. None are offensive, in my opinion.
This book is a good Project Management book. The style is clean and far from verbose. The text can be revised at a certain point to align the terminology with the PMBOK .

The book covers the project management topic very well. The author begins the book with why businesses should leverage project management, then moves on to the project definition, the project life cycle, the Project Management Institute (PMI) and project methodologies, and finally to each phase of the project life cycle (initiation, planning, implementation, and closing). The book does include an index, a slide set for each chapter, and is available in several different formats (HTML, PDF, etc.)
The book is accurate, up-to-date, and unbiased. The implementation chapter is light. I think a complete chapter on monitoring and controlling would have added much value to the book.
The book content is up-to-date. While the project management field continue to evolve, and core processes and knowledge areas are mature and stable. The book is written in such a way that corrections and revisions will be straightforward to implement. Speaking of revisions, the author covers the five PMI process areas (initiation, planning, executing/implementation, monitoring and controlling, and closing); however, the implementation chapter is light with brief mention of the monitoring and controlling activities. A good chapter on monitoring and controlling would have add much value.
The book is easy to read and follow. While the author used many of the project management technical terminology, she did not go overboard. The majority of the chapters cover the content well.
The book is mostly consistent. The one inconsistent, I think, that requiring refinement is the project management processes. While the author used initiation, planning, implementation, and closing, the PMI uses initiation, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing. I think, it would be best to stay consistent with PMI.
The book is modular. The book consists of 19 different chapters. Each chapter focuses on a different project management topic. 9 of the 19 chapters focus on planning the different project management knowledge areas, which in my opinion, is appropriate.
The book is well organized and structured. The 19 chapters’ flow well. The content of flow of each chapter is also good. I already stated the implementation chapter is light and a separate chapter of monitoring and controlling would have added value.
The book interface is very good. As far as I can tell, there are no interface and navigation problems. The images and charts are clear and readable. A few of the images are busy and still readable.
The book grammar is very good. While I was not focusing much on grammar, no grammatical errors stood out.
The book is politically correct. I think, I would have noticed if the book was culturally insensitive.
I think, this is a good project management book. I think the implementation chapter should be renamed to executing and beefed up. I also think a new chapter on monitoring and controlling should be added. Finally, the planning chapters could be adjusted to align with the PMI knowledge areas.

I think the book does a pretty good job of this although I think the representative graphics were difficult to view as part of the book content. They are too small and required enlargement if you wanted to try to get anything out of them. read more
I think the book does a pretty good job of this although I think the representative graphics were difficult to view as part of the book content. They are too small and required enlargement if you wanted to try to get anything out of them.
I was pleased with this aspect of the book.
As long as there are projects to manage, this book will be relevant. As an elementary guide to the process of project management it does a good job.
Many text books are pedantic and verbose. This one is not. Basic language drives to the elemental point.
I think the author did a very good job with her organization of the material, sequential steps and references.
The graphics are poor. I think there should be more use of charts and flow charts. The graphics provided are difficult to interpret or even see in the PDF version.
Grammatical Errors rating: 4
Cultural Relevance rating: 3
Very little opportunity in the subject matter to deal with cultural relevance. I found no insensitive or offensive references of any kind.
The graphics provided were frustrating. Given the nature of this subject, I believe more graphics should be provided; flow charts, story boards, scheduling forms, etc. I am a visual learner and find subjects like this are easier to grasp with visual aids and case studies. Some examples were used but I think following an actual, completed project; supported by photos of the product of the project management effort would be helpful in keeping the learners interest.
