Project Management: Navigating the Complexity with a Systematic Approach
by Abdullah Oguz, Ph.D., PMP®


Project Management: Navigating the Complexity with a Systematic Approach, by Abdullah Oguz


The world has become more complicated with the introduction and development of new technologies and methods, and novel risks such as the Covid-19 pandemic. Competition has been tougher than it used to be. Organizations strive to keep up with the changes in their internal and external environment. In light of unprecedented changes, project managers must be prepared in response to the demands of their organizations and key stakeholders like clients, customers, and government agencies. This book covers the fundamentals of project management and aims to guide undergraduate and graduate students to acquire the building blocks of project management. This book also includes Microsoft Project tutorials for project scope, schedule, resources, and cost, and monitoring and controlling.


Project Management has undergone pre-publication peer review by other project management faculty and has also been reviewed by students. All the chapters also include interactive questions made with H5P that provide students with immediate feedback. Ancillary materials for the text, such as PowerPoint slides and recorded lecture videos, will be forthcoming. Please consider sharing this announcement with any of your faculty who teach project management!
