Today, there are projects in all kinds of activities. To show how different kinds of projects can be managed, five examples are presented: the Tramline Project, the Pacemaker Project, the Kick-off Project, the City Development Project and the Profitability Project. By using these recurring examples, the book deals with planning projects in terms of time, function and cost; managing and controlling projects; and handing over and closing projects. The authors discuss both linear models for project management, what are known as stage-gate models, and agile methods such as Scrum. The book focuses on managing the individual project, but it is also placed in a broader context - in relation to the surrounding organization or company, and in relation to other projects that it may be connected with in some way.
