Project Management For Small Projects (2nd Edition) – Sandra Rowe

Project managers that are adept at managing and leading their own projects are increasingly being asked to collaborate with other project managers to lead individual program components. Along with process management and team leadership, project managers must now understand how to interact and exchange expertise with other project managers. A new chapter on program management provides critical insights and direction for managing a set of connected small projects in a coordinated manner in order to achieve advantages and control not attainable via individual project management.
