Insurance/Financial IT executive says: “you clearly paint what success looks like and call out solid characteristics of structure/rigor within the discipline.” VP of Technology at digital publisher says: “I have found this book to be a valuable resource as Dr. Houseworth has made the complex subject of project management very approachable.
