This user-friendly text provides the HR professional with the basic principles and tools associated with project management.

The main objective of this book is to provide the Human Resources manager with the basic principles and tools associated with project management. These are explained in such a manner that they may be applied to the range of specialized human resources projects that may be carried out within an organization. The book is written by a Human Resources professional in a style that is intended to be user-friendly to a Human Resources professional. It serves to de-mystify some of the more technical terms associated with project management, and to put them into a context that is relatively easy for the HR professional to apply in carrying out his or her day-to-day accountabilities. It assumes little to no prior knowledge of project management. It also assumes that the Human Resources professional may be involved in two types of projects within an organization. The first type is those projects that are focused on a human resources initiative and require the application of a human resources body of knowledge. In these projects, the Human Resources professional would apply project management skills to managing the project. The second type is large, organization-wide projects that are managed by an interdisciplinary Project Manager (PMI). In these projects, the Human Resources professional would be considered a team member, with a subject matter expertise in human resources management.
