Summary "This book provides a crash course in the business basics that every project manager needs to understand. The authors - former instructors at the Wharton School of Business and the University of Pennsylvania - teach readers skills that can ensure that their projects not only meet their technical objectives but their company's business objectives as well. And they introduce a unique online calculator that makes it easy to anticipate the effect each project decision will have on the bottom line. Filled with vital lessons for real-world situations, The Project Manager's MBA will quickly have project managers acting like entrepreneurs and thinking like CEOs."--Jacket.
