  • Technical Project Management in Living and Geometric Order

    Author(s): Jeffrey Russell, Wayne Pferdehirt, John Nelson, University of Wisconsin-Madison

    Updated: Mar 28, 2019

    Description: This book is organized around the fifteen lessons of a Technical Project Management course, with an emphasis on the connections between the various stages and practices of technical project management. After all, in practice, a project manager must continually draw on a wide base of knowledge, connecting, for instance, effective negotiating techniques with best practices for scheduling and resource allocation. No phase of a project unfolds in complete isolation from other phases of the project....[more]

  • Sim Labs for Thermodynamics and Thermal Power Plant Simulator
