    DescriptionThe use of project management is now well established in the health and community service sector. In this complex environment, project managers need to be determined, flexible and prepared to respond to emerging evidence and stakeholder demands. This wholly revised edition of Project Management in Health and Community Services challenges the accepted wisdom of project management methods from other fields. It presents tools and techniques to successfully implement good ideas in the health and community service context. From the inception of a good idea, to convincing your supervisor to support your project, to wrapping up a successful outcome and capturing the lessons learnt, Project Management in Health and Community Services offers practical problem-solving strategies and provides a comprehensive guide to managing projects. It uses case studies and examples from the field to illustrate topics such as the project lifecycle, project planning, execution and evaluation, risk management, change and effective teams. Project templates and a glossary of terms are new features to this edition. Written by authors with years of practical experience and underpinned by recent research, this is a valuable resource for anyone studying or working in health and community services.

    Review quote
    'The authors provide solid advice and practical resources, many of which can be used straight off the page and on this basis alone the book is good value for money. It is a useful reference that will probably become as well thumbed as my own copy.' - John Anderson, Australian Health Review
