‘I believe its content is useful for me as a reader and it should be for the reader in general to be used directly in practice. I think all graphics are helpful and facilitate the reader comprehension.’

‘When you are already familiar with the PMBOK Guide, this book gives you a comprehensive summary and reference. However, if the PMBOK Guide hasn’t crossed your path yet this pocket guide is a must-read, especially when you are acting as a project sponsor, project manager, project team member which are the three key roles for project management as distinguished in this pocket edition. But also when acting in a project supporting role, e.g. in a project support office, the pocket edition gives you a condensed overview for understanding the key processes in project management.’
