25 December 2012 – London, UK – Gower Publishing in UK has announced the publication of a new book by Ron Basu, Managing Quality in Projects. The book is featured in Gower’s Advances in Project Management Series.
According to the Gower news release: Managing Quality in Projects shines the spotlight on an aspect of project management that can often be overshadowed by the pressure to deliver on time and on budget. Ron Basu’s investigation focuses initially on defining the dimensions of quality in project management and identifying sources of measurement for project excellence. He expands to discuss which tools can be used in the quest for project excellence; and the factors and processes critical to project success and maturity. The text also explores how the successes of supply chain management, Lean Thinking and Six Sigma may be gainfully deployed and offers case study examples.
A shared understanding and implementation of project quality, by those directly involved in project delivery and the project stakeholders will go a long way to ensuring a stable platform for delivering projects of excellence. It is also a fundamental building block in any organization’s strategy for improving consistency and achieving sustainable performance.
Dr Ron Basu is the founder of the consulting company, Performance Excellence Limited and a Visiting Professor at SKEMA Business School in France and a Visiting Fellow at Henley Business School, UK. Ron is the author or co-author of ten management books including Managing Project Supply Chains (2011) also published by Gower.
