Naked Project Management – New Book by Dennis Lock

PM PUBLISHING NEWS 

23 May 2013 – London, UK – Gower has published a new book by Dennis Lock, Naked Project Management. Here is an introduction to project management from one of the best and most experienced writers. Dennis Lock is a legend in project management publishing, having written or edited more than 50 books, which have subsequently been translated into languages as diverse as Chinese, Indonesian, German and Spanish.

naked-project-managementBooks about project management are plentiful. The best of those books are too comprehensive for the person faced for the first time with managing a small and relatively straightforward project, or for the student studying for a degree or business qualification in which project management is only one of several modules. But, at the other extreme too many of the simpler books treat project management lightly, gloss over or ignore some essential processes, and even get the facts wrong and give incorrect examples.

Naked Project Management is an introductory guide to the world of project management from one of the world’s most accomplished project management authors. Lock has stripped project management down to its bare facts – simplifying everything but trivializing nothing – leaving  sound practical advice on how to organize and manage a small or medium sized project.

The book is written in the direct jargon-free style that has become Dennis Lock’s hallmark. Everything is carefully explained and supported with clear diagrams. It covers all the essential aspect of project management in astonishingly few words and provides further instruction with an entertaining case study project that flows logically through the chapters from beginning to end.

Degree and other students for whom project management is an elective or small part of their course will love this compact time-saving and reasonably priced study resource.

Dennis Lock is a freelance writer who specializes in project management. His exceptionally wide industrial experience has included sub-miniature electronics, defence systems, heavy engineering and international mining, with a progression of successful management positions in all of those industries. He has fulfilled consultancy assignments in Britain and overseas and in recent years has taught project management to masters degree students as an external lecturer at two British universities. Of well over 50 books that he has written or edited, almost all have been published by Gower. Among his current work he is co-editing the first edition of a new Gower Handbook, The Gower Handbook of People in Project Management.

Founded in 1967 and based in the UK, Gower is an independent publisher, widely recognized as a specialist in project management books and resources.
