The Management of Complex Projects: a Relationship Approach

1 October 2006

Value is added to projects through the relationships surrounding the client; the focus of this book, edited by Dr Stephen Pryke and Dr Hedley Smyth, is therefore the client as project, rather than the building on the ground. It shows how to create and maintain effective relationships between the client and the project team, as well as intra-coalition relationships 

Most project management books cover tools and techniques; this one covers the softer skills and shows how crucial good relationships are to the successful management of projects.
